Hello, I am working on a PM Wurlitzer ensemble, I want to be able to use the large library of impulse responses that comes with Kontakt's Convolution effect by default, in Reaktor. These IR files will be embedded within Laurent Sevestre's convolution macro so they cannot (i think) be accessed as an audio file, to prevent piracy. I haven't taken the time to read the Kontakt/Reaktor terms of use (because of how long most of these agreements are, and how easy to forget the information is) so I am concerned as to the legality of doing this. Thats why I am asking this question.

    Unless you release this ensemble as a commercial object, using the IR in your ensemble is fine!

    Hard to say. It is not explicitly written in EULA, that it is not allowed, but also it is not written, it is allowed. IRs are part of SW and SW is protected by general rules for SW. And one cannot use even parts of SW without written permission.

    So, I would guess, it is not possible to use IRs elsewhere, without aditional permission from NI. But you may use it for your personal use, I think. But not distribute it to others.

    The best would be, if you ask NI directly.

    No, the ensemble will not be released commercially, it will be released for free on the user library. Does this still apply?
