Do you know anything about the world? Do you not know that people of latin America have computers? Did it not occur to you that people of latin America also like to make music? DO you think most of them are buying software.. Fuck no thier not because they cant afford it. $400 is not reasonable to them at all.puzzlefactory wrote:njh wrote:No thats not the bottom line and you missed my point.puzzlefactory wrote:Bottom line is, the people Bitwig Studio is being targeted at, are people that can afford €300.
Unfortunately there are a lot of people in the world who cannot afford this and I'm sure the good folks at Bitwig are sympathetic to their plight, but they are not the target market.
Bitwig is targeting people who historically are poor. They are marketing this to musicians and bedroom producers.
How many rock stars are there that you know of who started out rich?
Lately how many new edm stars have been outed as using cracked software? Why do you think they used cracked software.. because they could not afford the software because they were poor musicians.
Right now there is only a couple of daws that are NOT targeted towards musicians. Those daws are marketed for mastering houses.
Can you even name one full featured daw that doesn't tell a musician how easy it is to hook their guitar or keyboard to tier software? They wouldn't bother telling a musician how easy it is if they did not want them to buy it.
I'm sorry, but who exactly are these poverty stricken computer musicians you've taken it upon yourself to represent? People apparently too poor to save up €300 but whose primary concern in life is to make dance music on thier laptop?
But its not just people in latin America here in America where I live outside of Detroit also cant afford $400.00 for software. Here people are students or working and saving their money to get the fuck out. They do make enough money to buy shit they want but the average musician here is not going to waste $400.00 on software when there computer is only worth that much.
