Copyright / License

Now that Faust libraries are less author specific, each function will normally have its own copyright-and-license line in the library source (the .lib file, such as analyzers.lib). If not, see if the function is defined within a section of the .lib file stating the license in source-code comments. If not, then the copyright and license given at the beginning of the .lib file may be assumed, when present. If not, run git blame on the .lib file and ask the person who last edited the function!

Note that it is presently possible for a library function released under one license to utilize another library function having some different license. There is presently no indication of this situation in the Faust compiler output, but such notice is planned. For now, library contributors should strive to use only library functions having compatible licenses, and concerned end-users must manually determine the union of licenses applicable to the library functions they are using.

STK 4.3 License

The Synthesis ToolKit in C++ (STK) is a set of open source audio signal processing and algorithmic synthesis classes written in the C++ programming language. STK was designed to facilitate rapid development of music synthesis and audio processing software, with an emphasis on cross-platform functionality, realtime control, ease of use, and educational example code. STK currently runs with realtime support (audio and MIDI) on Linux, Macintosh OS X, and Windows computer platforms. Generic, non-realtime support has been tested under NeXTStep, Sun, and other platforms and should work with any standard C++ compiler.
