Re-sing sample pack vocals

Hey all,

I wonder: I have this great vocal set for a full song with great text for a very good production track (I think the text alone will be a seller).

I used vocal sample packs for practicing purpose in the past. Now I use real vocalist.

Can I use the samples from that pack and let the sing by a vocalist? I have the right to use the samples. But do I have the right to let them sing by another vocalist and basically use the text form that pack?

I can not find anything about this on google. Does anyone have an idea or some knowledge about this?

Or do I be better of by making (new) something similar with a vocalist? I know this is the save route. But I would like to know how this works.

So basically can I use the text from the samples sing by another vocalist?

Thanks!
Glenn

Are you saying that you have a sample pack of vocals that you’ve spliced together and you like the lyrics so much that you want to have your singer cut a new track with those same vocals?

I’d love to hear what sample library you’ve found that has lyrics that inspiring lol

When you bought the sample library it came with a use agreement... read it thoroughly.

Loop/sample/vsti libraries usually have a line in their end user agreements that say that you can’t use their stuff to create a new loop/sample/instrument

No it is only 1 song of vocals. 2x Verse, chorus and ad lips.

And it reflects a few moments all reality soaps have in it almost every season ... more then once.

I sometimes bin the extra documents and stuff in packs. So there is no agreement in it. I checked. I will re-download it from my vendor.

No, that’s illegal.

Sounds like you used a PHRASE LIBRARY (which may be part of the sample library you have) and chopped/edited together to make longer phrases? One becoming a verse, another a chorus, etc? And then you want a "real" singer to re-sing it? Probably not a problem... but I'd not use the same words, just because... they must be generic as hell!
