    What a choad. The dude makes tons of dough off of the punters who actually pay so see his cake throwing farce of a DJ set and doesn't even have the decency to pay for his software? Isn't his dad the owner of the Benihana franchise? Frickin' rich kids and their silver spoons...

    Not defending him exactly here because he's definitely an asshat, BUT there's no guarantee that HE's the one who pirated it. It could've been Linkin Park, or the recording studio, or any one of the many sound guys who ACTUALLY make the music. I highly doubt if this guy even knows how a DAW works, let alone how to download and install VSTs, pirated or not.

    In fact, if _I_ was one of his sound guys, I'd almost certainly tell him that I need $200 to buy a plugin to make a new track sound awesome, then go and spend the money on hookers; because if he ever got caught I just deny everything and then there'd be an article about him using pirated software on pulseradio.

    My thoughts exactly hahahahaha


    People are giving him too much credit, aoki isn't capable of pirating and such.

    if software companies want to go after someone....go after someone who has tons of money, like Aoki. Not some broke kid living in his moms basement making tracks with a pirated VST. haha

    Deadmau5 uses or used a pirated copy of Sylenth1 as well.

    He said it on twitter a few weeks ago.

    The company that makes Sylenth1 should give this guys a free copy imo. They produce great music using it, show them many times on social networks, interviews, whatever and are great publicity for the company. Why not?
