This is the first release in what seems to be a forthcoming series of sample pack based on the Korg MS-20analogue synthesizer. The first release features a collection of SFX one shots and bass hits in 24-bit WAV format. Audio Animals have done a very good job at sampling this legendary synthesizer and the included sounds are both interesting and very usable.
Once again, I was eager to find out whether the included sounds are free for commercial use. Here’s a quote from the provided Licensing Agreement text file:
“Only the original purchaser of this product has the right to embody and reproduce the enclosed sound samples within their music compositions. Use of these sounds in multimedia projects is limited to use within original musical compositions, 100% royalty free.”
So, if you download these samples from the Audio Animals website through the standard checkout procedure, you can use these sounds in your musical compositions 100% royalty free. You are not allowed to re-distribute the samples or use them in projects other than your original musical compositions.
