    Recorded music has a frequency distribution which is detailed enough to act as a fingerprint of that specific recording. With software, that distribution can be captured and made into an impulse file, which can be applied to sound. In music production, this is well known and widely used.

    Impulse files generated from copyrighted work are often shared online as public domain. Is that technically legal, and if so, could you even sell them commercially?

    Could you legally sell impulse files that were created by taking frequency snapshots of someone else's recording?
