Not contacting Eric before releasing this was a mistake and it gives the wrong impression of us.
My intention when starting this venture, was never to sample anything still in production or sample based and I should have stuck to that.

One comment from Eric is quite strange. He mentioned doing your own D-50 patches and selling them as a sample library while ethically OK seems to be "technically illegal".
This seems to be strange as long as you provide samples of the full patches (like with the LA-50 library) and not raw samples of the ROM content.
One thing that fascinates me is how small the software/plugin community seems to be.
An indie vendor releases a "tribute" instrument, and the original creator gets right on the case.
It's like when ABBA had KLF destroy all their pressings of one of their first white label releases, because of an uncleared sample.
