It does seem truly odd though that TE is relying on a third party app as seemingly the only way to get sliced aif samples on the op-z drum tracks. If anyone else has a suggestion that would bypass the drum utility vst, i’d be very curious
Possibly avoiding legal scrutiny by copyright holder for enabling users to easily sample material. big difference between radio sampling a la op1 and high fidelity imports of the same material. Legal or not one is more likely to raise eyebrows. Just a thought
That’s ridiculous. There are tons of samplers with direct input like the MPC Live, Sp series, etc etc. This has nothing to do with copyright (and how would a device manufacturer be influenced by that?)
Most device manufacturers aren’t using .aif (apple),
Companion app (apple)
Not suggesting they’d have any direct legal culpability but as mentioned, hey may not want to raise any eyebrows. Anyhow it was just a thought. Line in is different than creating / distributing branded software designd to alter / covert audio files to be manipulated and subsequently recoded or used by individuals. (I believe « how Would manufacturers be influenced? » is pretty clear. But it’s just a thought not a fact.
