Hello all! (Sorry if there's already a topic on this. If there is, please refer me to it ) I have been wondering about the legality of using samples, recorded from a sample based digital synthesizer, in your own instrument. There is some talk about that on the interwebs but I still don't have a definite answer. It seems the majority agrees that sampling analog synths is ok, but sampling sample based digital ones isn't. I fail to see the difference since you have to strike a key (a performance in itself) to sample it. The resulting copy would be close but not identical. I see a lot of stuff out there in Kontakt and UVI land that's based on hardware synths. Some of them indeed say what it's based on, but rename their instruments to quasi resemble the Original. Does anyone have a clue how this works? May I sample a Roland D-50's or Yamaha SY-55's waveforms and use them to build a new Kontakt instrument with a new name? Greetings !
