Hi peeder,

I'd like to hear your comments on why you'd make a audio software like Reaper open-source?

As a developer of a soft synth plug-in, I have always been distant to open-sourcing such software, mostly because of the reasons you have mentioned.

if there ever was a good business model behind open source for consumer level software (as opposed to enterprise/business software), then I'd consider open sourcing my code as well.
