Yes, it isn’t that difficult to chop these things up. But some people figure “I bought it, so I’ll use it however I want”.

In a way, I feel that libraries can’t complain too much. Most pay nothing for the cues they get from composers. If the library makes no investment in the product, why do they expect the composer to foot the bill for unique sounds for every project?

On the other hand, composers should be trying to up their game and use better tools and do unique things with the samples they get. It does help to stand out amongst the torrent of other music out there.
