@timprebble do the license of your sound libraries allow for transformation and reselling?
Yes and No. Of course transformation is allowed, thats part of every sound designers process. But the EULA specifically prohibits selling derivative products. Machine learning is also explicitly prohibited.
If someone wants to take my work, alter it & sell it as their own, then they will need to apply for a commercial license. You will find that is the norm in the world of sound FX libraries.

(Plenty of people use HISSandaROAR sounds in Kontakt, and in SoundMiners sampler... I deliberately seperate mutliple takes within a file with digital silence to help enable that... but they do so for their own use, not to resell. I like it this way, it makes every use case unique)

Thanks for the clarification. I suspected this was the case but couldn't find any info on your website.

I made this by playing my own patch, Nuns in Bee, on Falcon that I made with Public Domain samples. So, this is just me recorded playing live with that patch.

I had to remove the music from the nuns singing, and tidy up that sample...
Falcon is overkill for this sort of thing Bee. This is all you really need and it's just 9 bucks! ;)

Get back to me when Soundiron have a comb with a piece of paper library, then I'll be interested.

RX9 Advanced is brilliant. Easily the most valuable piece of software in my toolkit as nothing else could replace it.
RX is fantastic, but it is also a time sink. If it is possible I always prefer to record another or longer take, and avoid losing hours of my life in RX. 'Fixing it in post' is not always the win it appears to be.

It is an unfortunate necessity for those of us with a predilection for singing nuns recorded in 1926, or the only known sound recordings of Aleister Crowley, or just generally scavenging the scraps fallen from the table of public domain radio and film. I'm still working on my skills at a low level; but I imagine it will always take rather a long time.

I hear you. I have lost entire weeks of my life, removing unwanted elements (birds!) from ambiences... As with film production sound/dialogue, so many sounds would be un-useable without RX.

I remastered Crowley's recordings years ago for a doc. I also own a couple original signed manuscripts.

If you happen to have Cubase 11, check out Spectralayers One. I got it for free last year and it is incredibly useful…


What is this sorcery?!?!?!?!?

And is this included in all Cubase versions?

Edit:

Apparently it's included in the Artist and Pro versions!

Yeah, well, for just many hundreds of dollars more, RX will divide the music into four tracks just as quickly!

Actually, there was another plugin I was looking at recently that specialises in this. I can't for the life of me remember what it was. I'd love to know if it does a better job.
