    Toy Piano

    I have never sampled an instruments – so I thought about starting with something small. My son’s toy piano.

    I thought about “deep” sampling it, including all of the different instruments (and maybe even the drum loops).

    Then I got thinking – I don’t own these sounds. The company that made the piano (whoever they are) owns them.

    Am I even allowed to sample the toy piano and make it available for other to download?

    Think of it this way: are you allowed to record the instrument as part of a song? Of course! Sampling is no different. You can’t reverse engineer all the electronics and sell a knock off version of the toy, but the sounds are meant to be used!
