It is still against the law…
In terms of 8 or 16 bit type music, I like to use a free program called BoscaCeoil Although, this really doesn’t help with other type of music than that, and you’ll have to have a program to transfer a .wav file to a .ogg or .mp3
This is quite off-topic so we should end the discussion but “illegally downloding” is something almost everybody doesn’t care about.
Doesn’t FL Studio let you use it as long as you want freely with the requirement that you cannot save/load your progress so practically you must be on the window until you finish creating your piece?
I am not really sure never used it, but the fact that you can’t save/load if you’re not registered sounds a bit lame, I think they just have a free trial period.
It says on the website you can’t load saved projects nor use functionalities related to saving projects but exporting to wav & mp3 is allowed for the free trial, it also states unlimited time for the free trial.
