Come on, I think an overwhelming majority of the readers of this list
interprets "open source" or "free software" as "software for which I can

"software for which I don't have to pay anything". People use old words
and phrases to mean new things all the time, mostly because describing
the new thing exactly would be too long and making up a completely new
word would just sound silly.

A notice on the "Download" webpage on http://www.linuxsampler.org=20
says

LinuxSampler is licensed under the GNU GPL license with the exception
that
COMMERCIAL USE of the source code, libraries and applications is
NOT ALLOWED without prior written permission by the LinuxSampler
authors.

I would definitely say that using linuxsampler to produce an album that
you are selling or to perform a live concert to which you sell tickets
falls under "commercial use of the application". That is probably not
what the authors meant, but it's the natural way to interpret it.
