Copyright for modified Cubase demo project

Hi All,

I loved the instrumentation and vibe of the Cubase 12 pop demo project, created by Austin Hull, so I rearranged it to suit a song of mine. The chords, melody and lyrics are now completely different, and I have added by own elements on top. Obviously, I am not using any of the vocals. However, I’m not sure where this leaves me in terms of copyright, as all of the instrument patches/samples/oneshots are all royalty free, but they have been specifically chosen by another producer. I have contacted Austin Hull, and he said that any copyright would lie with Steinberg and to talk to them, but they don’t have a contact email address and I doubt my local Australian distributor would be able to answer this question. Any ideas?

Thanks for your help!
