 From the above:
"Because of the threat of a copyright suit, however frivolous, sound samples
from digital synthesizers are off limits."

That's utter nonsense.  If I create a patch on my Ensoniq VFX and sample 
it, then *I* hold the copyright on that sample, not Ensoniq (or rather 
the company that bought the company that bought Ensoniq).
