Product Content Definitions1
Our products contain content that we categorize into three different categories. Presets, Samples, and Project Files. We distinguish these product categories since some are not meant for commercial purposes.
With the term "PRESETS", we refer to sound extensions created explicitly for other software synth-instruments such as Serum, Sylenth1, and others. They usually include but are not limited to the file-type ".FXP" / ".FXB".
With the term "SAMPLES", we refer to short audio clips playing back sounds such as drum one-shots, synth one-shots, drum loops, synth loops, MIDI files, and more. They usually include but are not limited to the file-type ".WAV" / ".MP3" / ".FLAC" / ".MID"
With the term "PROJECT FILES", we refer to our original Digital Audio Workstation sessions. They usually include but are not limited to the file-type ".FLP" / ".ALS" / ".LOGICX"
100% Royalty-Free License2
2.1 The "PRESETS" and "SAMPLES" in our products are licensed to you, not sold to you. All rights not expressly granted to the user are reserved. On the other hand, "PROJECT FILES" are neither licensed to you nor sold to you, and are entirely excluded from our 100% royalty-free license, and can not be used for both commercial and non-commercial purposes.
2.2 Only the original purchaser of our product has a legal right to use the contained "PRESETS" and "SAMPLES" within their own "original" music compositions and/or in advertisements, soundtracks, and television or film productions. The content can be used for both commercial and non-commercial use. However, it may not be used to create any competitive product, such as a Sample Pack, Sample CD, Sample DVD, Virtual Instrument, Expansion Pack, or any other collection of sound or loop elements in any format. This includes the download and use of free products from our website.
2.3 The "PRESETS" and "SAMPLES" may not be used "isolated". They must be used within the context of a musical piece mixed with additional parts.
2.4 The "PROJECT FILES" for our Artist Edition products contain "MUSICAL CONTENT" such as original chords, melodies, and more that do not belong to us. They instead belong to the original artist and/or label that the product is inspired by. These project files' musical content is excluded from our 100% royalty-free license, and they may not be used for both commercial and non-commercial use.
2.5 The "PROJECT FILES" of all products (excluding Artist Edition products) contain "MUSICAL CONTENT" such as original chords, melodies, and more that belong to Stickz. These project files' musical content is excluded from our 100% royalty-free license, and they may not be used for both commercial and non-commercial use. Our project files are solely meant for educational purposes.
2.6 You may not re-sell our products or pass them on to a third-party as this license is non-transferable.
2.7 All "PRESETS" and "SAMPLES" contained in our products are expressed as "royalty-free", meaning you can use the samples and presets in a compilation, sell that compilation and not have to pay any royalties or recurring fees to Stickz or its affiliations.
2.8 All copying, lending, duplicating, re-selling, renting, uploading, file sharing, or unauthorized trading of our content (or any part of our content) is prohibited by international copyright law.
