 You might add that Europe's number one selling electronica artist in 2005 MYLO produced the "Destroy Rock and Roll" album on a G4 using pirate software in his bedroom and mentioned this during interviews. Even a student from a wealthy background such as MYLO (who had international scholarships) would not have been able to produce the repetitive drivel that the world loves without software piracy. Furthermore, he has done wonders for music software industry at a time when dance music was in retreat and can afford to buy it all now. Dont try this at home kids.
 The inventors of digital sampling felt they were "cheating" because they were were short cutting mathematically formulated synthesis.
