    Boring for normal childhood stuff, but awesome for the nature aspects. I wish I had appreciated them more at the time (though in retrospect I appreciate it now!)

    Not really my thing!

    I said I wasn't good at managing. Do I want to be? Not really, I much enjoy other things (I do like to improve at other things! but not the ones you mention).

Question: How you like Win10? The sense of control and ownership is nonexistent. [permalink]

    Yeah it's pretty depressing. I installed it on an old laptop to test some live looper stuff, and it works well, except for when it decides to do a bunch of updating crap (interrupting the audio). And there's no way to know when to do it. The answer: keep the network disabled, ugh.

Question: Please, look at oscii-bot again or, even better, at celphor's fork, that supports SYSEX messages. His fork is crashing on Windows 7/10 64 bit (both 32 and 64 bit versions). SYSEX is crucial to send feedback from Reaper to my controller's LCD screen. Without this I won't be able to complete my midi2osc script. I've asked several guys to test if this error rep [permalink]

Question: If I want to make an effects box like a contemporary Jesusonic, should I learn how to program dedicated DSP chips like Blackfin, or will x86 work fine? [permalink]
Asked by Roland (68.98.229.x) on November 14 2016, 3:04am
Reply on November 14 2016, 3:13pm:
    Either way, DSPs are probably cheaper/use less power..but x86 has PLENTY of power :)

Question: Are you still using VC++ 6 for anything now in almost 2017? [permalink]

Reply on November 10 2016, 2:10pm:
    I actually prefer it as an IDE to the newer versions... but I don't use it much. We do our win32 builds using VC6/ICC10, which sort of counts.

    Nope, haven't heard anything. Not sure it matters. One could probably re-create it in a reasonable amount of time, if they felt the desire.
