Looks nice indeed. Their 'Bounce' compressor is seriously good for drums/buses - handles low end extremely well.

The KVR plugin page ( http://www.kvraudio.com/product/max1-by-beatskillz )
says "Copy Protection: None" ...this is all wrong, it demands a serial and you are asked to enter an email to request a free serial.

Since my DAW is offline, I installed it on a online computer just to request a free serial.
The serail was mailed to me but it didn't work on my offline DAW.

So unless something got messed up in the process I assume it is a C/R protection without a Offline activation alternative.

It's certanly NOT without a copy protection thats for sure.

You are right, from the manual it says :

Registration:
In demo mode the plugin will fully function for 15 days (trial mode) .
Just enter your email address and register for FREE! the
plugin will be then fully functional with no restrictions.

Yes my real beef with this is that it fails to mention that you need to be connected to the internet. It basicly says I "Just have to enter my email address and register"... incomplete and/or missleading information is something that disturbs me.

Sure it's "free", but my time is not... so there's no excuse to hide the fact of not having support for offline activation.

Beatskillz just made my sh*tlist

The installer is a mess on this one: installs VST x32, x64 and AAX without asking you anything.
Sounds pretty decent, but 10ms latency? Lost my interest.

Fully agree, I felt offhand and tricked.
I hope Gaurav takes note users should not run into something like this
otherwise over the time the question of drawbacks on freebies becomes more and more prominent.

The welcomed idea to support inexperienced users on compression attented with handicaps I should say.
Next time ...
