We are India’s leading music and recording software distributors / dealers. Because of the new GST act, we are able to sell you original plugins, virtual instruments, loop libraries, DAWs, and more as both a box and download editions.

Some software products come only in box formats (example: Spectrasonics).

Some products from Vienna Instruments and East West give you a the installers on a Hard drive.

But now, almost all software is sold purely as download versions = activation key + download link.

All these are legal, official sales. And the prices give you the advantage of claiming 18% IGST credit when you buy from SudeepAudio.com (both box and download editions.)

Here are the only differences between boxed and download versions of a product like say FL Studio:

The boxed version of FL Studio (now discontinued):
a. How to register serial printed instructions leaflet
b. The serial number pasted  inside by us local dealers.
c. the outer carton box (which is indeed a feel-good thing to show off to visitors)

The download version (any FL edition):
a. the serial and registration link is emailed to you
b. you download the latest installer (size is about 800 Mb in size incase of FL Studio)
c. user manual as pdf or online
d. product is delivered quickly (usually within 1 hour on working days!)

All software listed on our web-store is ALWAYS with us in stock.

Once a software serial (or box-pack) is purchased, it is non-returnable under any circumstances – whether registered or not.
