No, it works. You have the right to use both VesTige and Sf2, as long as it is done on LMMS.
At least, I think so.
Thanks, it was answered on another thread by Jacoby Davis, Plugins being used with Vestige are ok to use.
I do have another question though, are samples and one shots permitted that have not come with LMMS?
Reason I ask, I want to include in a song the sound of like when a Vinyl record deck is powered off suddenly, I do have my own Vinyl decks and records but if I can use a sample I can download it would be much easier.
Is that permitted and can be used without disqualifying my entry for BoL VI?
As long as you own the rights to the samples/one shots used, you are free to use whatever samples you will. However, it is strongly discouraged that you make an entire song purely from samples alone.
In the case of your vinyl record example, using such samples (whether through your own creation or by obtaining another sample which you have the rights to use), that would be 100% acceptable. Just be sure you have proper usage rights ahead of time.

Last track I made is not allowed for BOL. (the party)
Rap samples used from the original, and its a kind of remix. ( midi recreation)
Although done in LMMS , it does not fit the rules.
So not all samples are allowed.
In the case of GPS's song, the reason the song does not conform to the rules is because his song is a remake of another work. We will not accept covers/reworks/recreations/remixes of songs which have been previously released by others.
The only exception to this rule is if you are remixing your own personal work which has not been a previous winner in a BoL competition. For example, if I were to eventually release a remix of my song "Mirror, Mirror" as a VIP (variation in production) remix, because I was the original creator and it is not a previous BoL winner, it would be considered acceptable.
However, it would not be acceptable if I were to enter a VIP of either Lux (BoL3) or The Little Things (BoL5) as both are considered to be previous BoL winning tracks.
Hope this clears things up.
