I have to read in detail the interesting description, including roadmap
before commenting on that, but I have one quick comment.

I think an important aspect is if you see you self ready to deliver as a
Renoise is developed by a group of developers, and came from (some kind
of) opensource that got serious/commercial at one point.
EnergyXT started as a single developer, closed source project, and has
now evolved into a company with more than one person.
Renoise development is going well, users are happy, the application is
stable and a logical roadmap is laid out based on input from users
EnergyXT development is a mess. The application is not very stable,
users are flaming the developers at the forum for not listening, and
many users are switching away.
I bought both, so for me it's not about the money (what is 50 euros,
anyways?), but I think you'd have an easier time with an opensource
application, especially if you manage to build a development team and a
user base over time.
