    Another sample license question

    If i get hired as an inhouse composer, do i have to rebuy through the company the samples i already own to be able to use them?

    Although all licence agreements are different, most have the same things in common. The licence belongs to you, so as long as you are the only person using it you are OK. There are a few specific cases where a site licence can be agreed, particularly in Educational Establishments, but as a rule a Company cannot buy samples for use by all their composers, so in your case you would have to use your own samples anyway.

    A simmilar question if you can help me:

    I'm working on a track... And need a speciic sound, which I don't own (like maybe a piano for example...) So I shape the midi file, sent it to a friend, who legally owns a piano, and he makes it into an audio.

    I'm credtiing his name about what he did, and he has been paid for the job he did.

    Can I do that?

    'Course you can, as long as he is the one using the samples.

    I see nothing shaky about it at all.

    The license is always for you to use the product on your projects. If you're hired to render the project with your sounds, that's your project; same if you're a performer, engineer, producer, or anything else. That's not renting the library, it's using it.

    Leaving the library on Jim's hard drive is totally different.

    I can confirm that this thinking lines up with Spectrasonics policy.

    Projects and sessions are fine, as long as you don't leave or distribute the samples themselves...only the music tracks you create from them.

    Thats it.
    The library does not belong to Bob or Jim.
    It belongs to Bobs Computer and his Computers sister.
    And if Bobs Computers lost brother comes in, Bob can buy a family license.

    Not at all, I still don't and will never have access to the samples, only an audio file.

    Yes, but this goes close to piracy, don't you think

    My question was a very straight foward one, no sample library exchanging hands, heck not even me using it! The rightful owner using it

    Anything else, for me seems to be kinda illegal (kinda though...)

    A really interesting thread indeed.
