Element is free in the following ways:
Some people like to explain this with the phrase “Element is free as in free speech, not free as in free beer“.
If you want the convenience of using our ready-to-run version and/or for support from Element developers, we ask that you pay something for this.
If you don’t want to pay for a ready-to-run version, then you’ll need to get the source code and build it yourself. We do not provide assistance with this process.
This is a complex software project, and without revenue to support its development, it will almost certainly grind to a halt. Patreon is one way that we try to raise revenue. Please consider supporting us.
Simply put, no. If you previously purchased Element Pro, downloads / updates are still available in your account area until 2.0.
It’s unfortunate Element didn’t survive as commercial software, and the current state of it WOULD NOT have been possible without you. Instead of letting the project come to a screeching halt due to lack of sales… we decided it best to open the source and make it a community project.
As an Element Pro/SE license holder, you will still get all the updates, downloads, and top notch support as always.
Thank you for understanding.
See the section above. The only difference is now you have the full-fledged version of Element including the AU/VST/VST3/AAX plugins! Have at it.
Essentially it has been replaced by Patreon.
Downloading the most recent Element and Plugin binaries is available to Patrons of Kushview. Public binary downloads on GitHub will usually be a few versions behind. See the FAQ above about free software.
