If i am using the GNU-licensed software "Open Metronome" (https://sourceforge.net/projects/openmetronome/) to create the basic rhythm of my own music, I am wondering if I can freely distribute the resulting music (including commercially)? Or if I am bound by the GNU license terms?
This software basically creates a very simple beat based on your choices of instrument (clapsticks, bass drum, etc.) and the speed that you select (bpm). I am wondering if the sound of the instruments in this software is somehow copyrighted and would restrict me from using it freely?
I understand that the OUTPUT of a GNU licensed program is generally not covered by the GNU license, but I also read that an exception is where the software contains any art or text that is also showing in the output. In this case, I am wondering if the sound recording of the different instruments would qualify as such?
