[sdiy] Microcontrollers for eurorack use... What to use?

I bought a personal license to Rowley / Crossworks about 8 years ago 
when I first started experimenting with embedded ARM and did a number of 
test projects with it at the time. It's a decent tool with lots of nice 
features but I don't use it now and here's why: the terms for the 
personal license are very explicit that it cannot be used for any work 
that earns money. Since a lot of my work ends up in commercial 
applications I can't in good conscience use this tool, and I don't want 
the hassle of starting a personal project in Crossworks and then porting 
to some other tool if/when I find a commercial application for it.

Given the number of high-quality free IDEs out there that perform as 
well as Crossworks and don't impose restrictions, I'm surprised that 
their personal and educational licenses have any market at all.
