I expected more from this compilation of sound clips. I wanted a variety of sounds to put to a slideshow. It`s a so --- so situation.

HASH(0xa6d18bac) out of 5 stars $40 Catalog Sept. 14 2012
By Kal Calvain - Published on Amazon.com

Avoid this one, it's nothing more than an expensive catalog.

The exact wording on Royalty use:
The audio files included in this Magix product may be used only for non-commercial purposes (exclusively for private purposes). Music files for commercial use are available at [...] catooh.com.

Not really royalty free. There are more than enough sets out there that are completely royalty free for the same amount of money, Sony has a whole line.

If you buy this collection don't expect to distribute your work in any way.

HASH(0xa6d18edc) out of 5 stars Seems license and royalty free only for PRIVATE USE Aug. 10 2012
By justme - Published on Amazon.com

Unlike the previous Sound Pool collections this one seems to be quote: "License-free and royalty-free use (for private use)".

That's what it says on the back of the DVD case. In my opinion this could pose a lot of problems if you plan on selling your music. Especially if you mix sound loops from this disk with sound loops from their previous realty-free Sound Pool DVD collections.

It's going to be impossible to try to install this and keep track of the 6,000 NOT royalty free sound loops on this disk. The only option I can think of is to copy this disk to a separate folder and select sound loops by going to that folder. That would be the only way to be sure that I haven't used a non-royalty free loop from this disk in my music.

If you've ever had a false copyright infringement claim on youtube you know it can be a nightmare to get rid of them. I'm sure every song I post with loops from this new disk will be getting flagged and with this new "royalty free (for private use)" policy I'll have no recourse.

What the he** possessed MAGIX to change their license and royalties policy is beyond my comprehension. Who do they think they're selling these things to and why do they think we buy them? I'll tell you why. So we can be free to compose music that we can distribute without having to worry about breaking felony copyright laws or having to pay license or royalty fees on something we've already bought.

If MAGIX doesn't change this new policy back I predict they'll be out of business in short order.

A definite Do Not Buy until they change their policy in my opinion. I'm tempted to throw this disk out a window to see how far I can get it to go. I can't believe they did this.

Other than that, things are fine.

HASH(0xa6d200d8) out of 5 stars Private use only Nov. 18 2012
By Jesse King - Published on Amazon.com
WARNING THIS PRODUCT IS LICENSED ONLY FOR PRIVATE NON-COMMERCIAL USE
IF YIU WANT A COMMECIAL LICIENSE YOU HAVE TO BUY THE $200 VESION FROM
[...]

FROM LICENSE AGREEMENT:

" 2. Granting of rights

The provider grants the customer unlimited temporal and physical, non-exclusive and non-transferable rights to private and non-commercial usage of the content. The content, however, may not, under any circumstance, be used for commercial purposes, offered to a third party for a fee, or distributed to a large group. Using the content as a means of eventual income is also seen as commercial use.
The customer does not gain ownership of the content and is not authorized to grant rights of content usage to third parties (sublicensing not permitted). Assignment of customer rights from this contract is not permitted. "

the older sound pools give you PRO license for about $40 (i think sp15 and older are good)

hope this helps

I purchased this used, and the software worked fine, but I did not receive a key with the purchase. The software itself it great, but there'll be limited use if a registration key is not provided.
