Hi, does anyone have any experience working in an audio facility which is required to comply with SOX (the Sarbanes-Oxley Act)?
For those who aren't familiar with SOX (that included me until very recently!), it places quite strict controls on a company's IT infrastructure e.g. open-source software and other freeware is generally not permitted to be installed on any computer.
To open up the question in a more general context - As someone working in a professional facility, would you rely on any open-source or free software (including utilities, RTAS plugins etc) for your work or would you stick to commercial software?
