In this case, if something is "Free", this means that the samples are both "libre" (freedom) and gratis (at no cost). 
"Non-commercial", "No-derivatives" or "Sampling" Creative Commons licenses are not "libre" licenses, and cannot be used.
Licenses which prohibit commercial sale and/or non-commercial sharing of the samples are not "libre".
If copyright to the samples is relinquished, the samples are in the "public domain". As long as they aren't third party, these samples can always be used. 
"Permissive" licenses are licenses which allow the license to be changed. As long as commercial use is allowed (including sale of the samples), and derivatives are allowed, and the samples themselves are "gratis", these types of licenses can be used.
"Copyleft" licenses are licenses which require "derivatives" (modified versions) to be licensed under the same or compatible license. These licenses may only be used if they are GPL compatible. 

Stardream Studios uses stricter guidelines on copyleft licenses. For example, CC-BY-SA or Artistic License samples won't be accepted in Stardream Studios projects, even if they are acceptable in Strix Soundfont projects.

Always record at 44.1kHz sample rate or higher, at 16 bit or higher, and in stereo if possible! Read the "requirements" column in the table above for more information on the requirements.

Never use commercial/non-libre software to process or synthesise samples! For example, don't use Guitar Rig or commercial VSTs!

Do not sample from third party sources, we will remove any third party samples from the soundfonts.
