generous? It has nothing to do with generosity as the developer is not giving me something... they are providing a demo to promote sales.
In my case, 30 days is not enough. I like to try a new synth at my own pace and I like to dig a little deeper into it to see if I will really use it. I have also had many months go by where I forget all about a synth demo then someone posts a particularly cool audio example and I decide to try it again. From my perspective, why reduce such chances by making the demo expire?
Of course each developer can do it however they want... In my case a 30 day time limited demo is unlikely to result in a sale.
seriously? another way to approach this: you HAVE 30 days, so you can't go 'at your own pace' if that goes past 30 days. dig in, explore, decide. pretty simple. the developer gives you a chance to check out a plugin, and it's YOUR job to do that within the time allotted.
actually, no it's not my job to do that within the time allotted... I have no obligation to use the demo at all.
I take my time and would rather keep my money than hurriedly buy something I end up not using. It's not like I particularly need a new synth, so in my case, it's a buyers market.
