Can I use Mad Zach's Sound Packs to make/sell my tracks?

Anything you make with these sound packs sounds is considered a remix since it's a part of an original tune the artist made, including instruments. If you use the soundpacks you must credit the creator and you cannot sell anything with it or redistribute them.
