FrePPLe is an open-source software with an open core that you can access in the community edition. Transparent We deeply value transparency, which is why you can access a free trial, public pricing, live demo, online documentation, community edition, etc. The program must include source code, and must allow distribution in source code as well as compiled form. Where some form of a product is not distributed with source code, there must be a well-publicized means of obtaining the source code for no more than a reasonable reproduction cost, preferably downloading via the Internet without charge.

We use a lot of commercial software, such as REAPER, Photoshop and others in the studio and office. But we love free, open source software.
