    gigastudio credit?

    When using GS3 in a paying project for the government, do you have to Give credit to Tascam and do you have to give credit for the libraries you use?

    BTW, can you use any of the supplied instruments that come with GS3, Demo or not and sell works containing those samples?

    In other words, if i make a song with the samples and sell it, do i have to pay anybody anymore money?

    giga... I guess you can tell I'm not exactly a "pro user"

    BUT I"M TRYING!

    Nearly every sample library I've used allows you royalty/credit
    free rights to use their samples in the finished music pieces.
    Obviously they don't allow you to release them in a form that
    would allow others to circumvent buying the library for themselves.
    Post also says I can't use it in non-melodic use, I guess to prevent
    me from using their Church Bells samples to make a line of electronic
    grandfather clocks.

    No credit is required to either the library or Tascam anymore than
    you would credit Steinway for the sounds from their piano. However,
    people do mention who made their instruments. I actually saw a credit
    to GPO on a CD for ssale the other day.

    Only if the library license specifically says you do. I do not believe the Gigastudio license says you have to give Tascam credit but you would have to read it to be sure. But it's pretty rare and in the absence of anything that says you must give credit, you don't have to.

    Incidentally a lot of people think they can copy stuff whenever they want as long as they give credit. Not true. Credit is pretty meaningless - it doesn't help you, and at the same time you're not ordinarily required to give it.
