Not at all. At your home, or in your studio, you are free to do
whatever you want to other people's work without a permission. The
legal regulation only applies for public use of the recordings you
make that way.

This is of course different if the owner of the original work has
explicitly made clear that parts of his/her work can be used by others
in their derivative work. If you are interested in that kind of
generic open collaboration you can
