Presonus gives software, when you buy hardware from them. I think that is a very good business model, however, presonus should think about, when focussing on good hardware, to use swarm free intelligence for their software products. If presonus would make Studio One opensource, a huge community would boost this application as thee killer application, where presonus stays, when smart, the main controller of that community. Presonus could use that free potential to produce even better hardware, than dealing with hard and software. Many companies are afraid to go that step. I may remind on the company who produced the wrt54g wlan router using a linux kernel. Finally, due to GPL, they were forced by curt to release the source code. The result: A big community of developers formed to make many things possible with the device and it became a product that did sell excellently, just because of it. But instead of continuing that way to make good hardware, they went back to commercial software and the result was clear. Presonus, maybe you can learn from it!
