I recently heard something about a new anti-pirating system for samples, invented by the Frauenhofer Institute. It is supposed to work with a kinda watermarking for each sample of a library which allows to identify it later even though the signal is filtered heavily (e.g. radio)
A few days ago I was talking to a friend, who claimed that this system is already being used in a few sample libraries including GOS.
Does such a system technically work at all and is it true that it is already used in sample libraries?
I can\'t really imagine how this should work. Any LF or HF signal can be filtered out. And even only combining any waveform with other similar waveforms would change the signal very much.
Does this watermarking influence the sound of the samples in any way? I was thinking of buying GOS and don\'t want to hear any odd noises in there [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
I hope someone can answer my questions. I\'m really curious.
