Subscriptions are ways to take money from you. I have cancelled most of my subscriptions becos I have Kodi as well as loads of real world entertainment like world travelling, huge libraries, real women, sports, meetups, hangouts etc with actual people and not bits and bytes on the screen..
If Renoise was subscriptionware I would not have purchased it. License ware is better. Makes paying an incentive. The last thing I want is in the middle of a project or say the next morning, the software tells me that you need to pay to use and open your project..major shucks..I would rather work on an older version and be reminded that a newer version exists..if features I don't want don't matter, I don't need to buy.
Going with the flow is not a good thing especially in todays time...
Ever purchased a guitar on a subscription or a piano? lOL...The next morning I pick up my guitar and the string won't play and tell me 'you gotta pay'. Haha..
One thing is for sure, Renoise won't increase your musician ship no more than using Logic or Cubase will, it's just a writing board or a blank canvas, the painting or music comes from everything around it, not in it as an absolute. A good investment on a real instrument is lifelong..no subscription needed.
