Hello Will,
is possible to use sample of codes from your books as a base for own uncommercial plugins?
Thanks for answer

Hi Niro

Yes, you may use the book code for your own plugins, commercial or non-commercial. Both are fine. 

However, you may not publish the code on a website, or in another book, as this violates the copyright from the publisher, Focal Press. 

All the best,

Will

Thanks for your fast reply.

I have one more similar additional question:

I am student and I would like to use some modified parts of code that I have downloaded from http://willpirkle.com/Download......6.0.1.zip in my plugin, which I develop as a practical part of my school thesis with JUCE framework (GPL license).

Is this possible?

Thank you

Yes, you can use the book code as you like.

I would only ask that you credit me and my website http://www.willpirkle.com in your thesis documentation and presentation.

NOTE: for those that would like to use RackAFX to develop commercial plugins, I ask that you add a link on your website to http://www.willpirkle.com along with a note such as "Created with RackAFX"

Hi Will,

I've been looking at the Apple Developer Program, as a means of signing VST3s (and later AUs) for the Mac (a tester of mine on an Intel Mac has the , and also stumbled across the Steinberg VST3 SDK license agreement, which appears to have changed with the move to VST3 - if I understand it correctly, if one is providing VST3 binaries with the source code too, this meets the GPLv3 license and so the Proprietary License Agreement doesn't need to be signed. One only needs sign this if: a) one is releasing plugins as VST2, or b) one is releasing binaries, but without the accompanying source code. Apparently though, one must also release their source under the GPLv3 license.

So I was checking my repo on GitHub, and realised I'd put up a Creative Commons license. Wondering whether I should change this, I wanted to check the ASPiK framework license. I noticed that there's a clause that the name ASPiK, or that of any of its contributors, may not be used to imply endorsement of derived products.

I'd named my repo "ASPiKProjects" to help me differentiate between RackAFX projects, and any later project types such as Juce, for example, or any I build directly using the VST3 SDK. I also have a repo "ASPiKCommon", where I have factored out a few common files into which I've placed my own custom fx & sub-controller classes.

I'd just like to know that I'm not in violation of any license terms.

Would you be so kind, when you have a sec, to take a quick look at my repos, and inform me if you see anything which in your opinion would violate the terms of your license:

https://github.com/DoomyDwyer/ASPiKProjects

https://github.com/DoomyDwyer/ASPiKCommon

I'd like also to make the statement that I'm acting in good faith, and any violations would be a result of legal naivety, rather than malicious intent.

Thanks.

Hi StevieD

I don't have a problem with your GIT repo names etc... So, there's no issue here.

I really appreciate that you took the time to read the license as well as make sure that I am OK with this. One of the reasons for that clause involves selling products with the name ASPiK in them, or spinning off products with the ASPiK name, implying that they are part of the framework, etc... 

I recently was made aware of someone selling an audio FX plugin code generator, that was actually RackAFX running in a hidden shell and being fed keystrokes to create the VST and AU projects. This is the kind of thing I am trying to prevent as well.

Thanks for getting back so quickly Will, and a Happy New Year!

Let's hope 2022 will be a more normal year than the last couple of years have been. Well, there's no harm in hoping Smile
