Samples copyright

Does anyone knows if there are any legal issues for making samples ?

For example:
Distributing samples out of DAW preset instruments ok?
Distributing samples out of DAW with your own preset/effects settings ok?

I'm definitely not an expert on copyright, but redistributing samples out of your daw I'm pretty sure is illegal.
If you want to redistribute samples, you'd have to use some CC or public domain samples.
As for exporting these samples with effects from a daw, I think that's okay.
I'm just a musician though, not a lawyer.
