I hate to be a jerk and crap on someone's project, but this is a
clear violation of the GPL.  Here's some GPL FAQs that explain this:


Software freedom zero requires that a program be usable for any
purpose whatsoever with no restrictions or limitations.  Of course if
I produce a hardware device that uses a modified LinuxSampler, my

"The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who
make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians
have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine
man in the bonds of Hell."
