Unfortunately, it is so. But you only find that restriction on some libraries which have pre-mixed loop kind of stuff. It\'s just too easy for people to take some of these loops and pop them into some library. Next thing you know, you hear that loop all over the place, with the profits going to some big corporate music house. If a composer buys a bunch of loop libraries and tries to make a quick buck by pumping out a bunch of cues, simply by adding a couple things on top of the loop, it hurts everyone. And this happens all the time. Composers are paid terribly for these library cues and have no incentive to really make something excellent. So they make a few miserable bucks off the backs of some sample library and to the deterement of everyone else who bought the library and wants to use it as legitimate inspiration for a piece of music. Stormdrum has this restriction on the loop part of the library. If it didn\'t, within 3 months everyone would be saying\" I\'d use it if it weren\'t for the fact that I\'m hearing it on every commercial and low budget TV show.\" The good news is that the multisamples are so strong tin SD hat you can make your own loops that will be of the same quality as the loops in SD. And you can put this in any library, because you made it.
