    Default Traktor: To Torrent or not to Torrent

    I know DJTT has a strong love for Traktor and has helped me decide its the optimum choice in software for DJs but I wanted all of your opinions on this:

    Do/Should you pirate Traktor?
    or "Is it worth my time to buy Traktor or be a tight ass and torrent like a cheap ass bitch"

    Pros and Cons of Buying.

    Pros
    Legitmate support from Traktor
    Updates such as T2.5
    Compatabiltiy with hardware is easier
    Is cheap considering the value of products like virtual DJ (Why is VDJ so expensive?!?!?)
    You dont feel like a douche

    Cons
    Costs money
    Is outdated in new updates, like jumps from 2-3

    Pros and Cons of Pirate.

    Pros
    Cheap
    Does nearly everything full Traktor does

    Cons
    Feels slow and clunky
    Doesn't respond well to changes
    If something goes wrong with the product it cannot be fixed by NI
    Feeling that something is missing
    Feel like a douche/cheap ass

    From experience I find that without NI support Traktors bugs become an announce without a quick fix solution

    Any points you guys could share?

    I guess if you want to grow up you should get a paid version.

    Yes, it shows that someone takes responsibility and knows the big picture of how the world works.

    These threads are boring. Do what you want, it's up to you... what were you expecting to hear anyway, no one's gonna encourage you to pirate it so if you're looking for opinions you've come to the wrong place.

    Honestly, I am not going to lie and say that I didn't originally torrent traktor 1, I tried it out and decided that indeed that was the program for me. Once I made this decision, I knew I had to purchase it first thing first before I invested into anything else.

    I'm not going to knock you for thinking of just downloading it, but I do recommend that you do try to invest into purchasing it (you can also get a free copy if you buy NI gear). Not just the idea that you are supporting what you are doing, but to know that what you are relying on when playing out is legit and that you won't run into any problems.
