We are often asked: "Can I sell the tunes I make using Blocs Wave, Groovebox or Launchpad?"
The simple answer is that all sounds in Groovebox, Blocs Wave and Launchapd reside under one of two licence agreements. The first covers all sounds from either Novation soundpacks or Loopmasters soundpacks; the second covers any sounds provided by UK Label Ninja Tune.
Novation soundpacks and Loopmasters soundpacks essentially use the same terms. You can find the full Loopmasters license agreement here:
Loopmasters also have a great guide on the subject here:
In summary, all of the samples included with the app are royalty-free. You can use them in your tracks without paying money to the content providers in this case Novation, or Loopmasters. The only thing you can't do is make the samples available individually. For example, you're not allowed to upload a track that contains just one drum loop. But if you add a guitar loop over the top of the drum loop, that's allowed! As long as you have two or more loops playing simultaneously, that's fine.
The licence agreement is different for the Ninja Tune soundpacks. You cannot sell or make available for public download, purchase or streaming any tracks made using the the Ninja Tune artist series soundpacks. These soundpacks have a different End User Licence Agreement, which you can find here.
