Jumbled enough that it's mostly to do with copyright of recorded sound, and furthermore it's possible to buy SQ80 samples, and for UVI to have the VFX, SY99 and other similar in Digitsl Synsations? And the Arturia VS? I sell D50 samples myself. I think it's a mixture of de minimis non curat lex. I don't see Roland or Linn or Oberheim going after NI for including their digital drums in Battery for years now.Rasputin wrote:That's one of the problems with loving synths that base their sound on some form of digital waves stored in ROM -- there's no way to legally make a virtual instrument because the waveforms are copyrighted -- barring spending money to license them, of course. You can sample an 808 or Minimoog all day long and be free-and-clear, but if you've after an Ensoniq SQ80, Roland D50, Alesis HR-16 (is anybody? ), Prophet VS, etc. then it's magically illegal.madtheory wrote:You're right, it doesn't. It's clearly different from the original anyway, the tone is harsher, you can hear it in the demos there. It's an amazing achievement though, the functionality is identical, envelopes behave the same. It just seems to be the filter is not quite right? Or perhaps it's the transposing? It's a pity one of the bigger VST houses can't take it on and finish it- the developer appears to have given up on it himself.
Intellectual property is such a jumbled mess of a concept.
I'd definitely buy a HR-16 Kontakt instrument would prefer SR-16 though. I've considered doing it myself, but I suck at scripting.
