Upcoming Sound Pack – Notes on Sampler and and Licensing

Another update on the sound pack project. First I have to say that I REALLY enjoy working in the Live rack/ Sampler realm. Knowing all Live 8/Suite users have the same FX makes extending Sampler very natural and makes for a really enjoyable workflow for me. I'm using a Wacom Bamboo Tablet and a Novation Remote SL 25 to navigate and perform as a program.

After crossing the 30 or so hour boundary on the Live Pack edition of the project I've been giving some thought as to how to handle other editions. I’ve gone WAY deeper than I imagined on the programming side and know that attempting to replicate the work on another synth would require I set aside a similar amount of time to do the work it justice in another format.

So, if you are following along, you know that Absynth won the reader's poll. I've made the decision that I won't re-programming the library on Absynth (at least right away). The good news is that instead I will release my original source audio samples licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The overall license for using the library for use in music and sound compositions will be “a non-exclusive royalty-free” by the way.

In the end, this means you’ll be able to use this source content in synths that support original samples as oscillator sources. Some that come to mind are Absynth, Alchemy, Blofled, ElectraX and so on.
