Hi Chris,

This is why lawyers make so much money - first, you write a licence...

I'd argue that the use of drum samples 'as is' in a program like
Hydrogen doesn't constitute transformation of the samples themselves.
It becomes complicated when you add real-time effects, since the
effects aren't printed to the samples, yet the modified form will
appear on the recording. I guess it's the distribution of modified
drum samples, not the modification itself, that's the issue.

My personal principle is that licences on creative tools - which would
include authorised drum kit samples included with software -
shouldn't be applied to the creative works made with those tools.
That really would be a 'viral' effect, and a restriction on user
