Question: " Yeah, though it doesn't really translate to MIDI much " it would be super cool to have a lyric on each melody. [permalink]

Question: You're an amazing programmer. Been following you since the early WinAmp days. Downloaded Waste on release day. I see here you've previously somewhat against it though your thoughts may have changed over time. I think you'd be an incredible addition to the bitcoin community.

    The blockchain as distributed trust is interesting and great, sure. But generally I agree with this (at least the last time I read it, some time ago).

    In your question: chicken
    In the dictionary: chicken
    In a French dictionary: egg.

    Side note (read aloud): Why do the French eat one egg for breakfast? Because one egg is un oeuf.

Question: Is it possible to somehow sync PlayTrackPreview2Ex() to tempo map at current time in project (noticed MIDI takes previewed with the function don't obey the tempo map). I'm using it like this: bit.ly/1FgC7IN Thanks! [permalink]

Reply on May 22 2015, 4:02pm:
    Hmm the problem is that "current time in project" is a bit vague... there is probably a way to play it as if it started at a particular time, but the details escape me...

Question: So, does it mean I will send you a plugin license and you will send me Reaper key or it's real to do it with someone other? Thank you. I'm from Belarus. [permalink]

Reply on May 14 2015, 4:35pm:
    No, it would have to be with a third party who wants to do the trade. For me, a plug-in license has little value...

Question: Justin, I have no ability to use PayPal. I have a license on VSTi, which costs as much as Reaper. Can I exchange with someone? I mean I will give someone this license and that man will buy the Reaper license from my name for me? [permalink]

    You could potentially, REAPER licenses are one-time-transferable by us. Or you could find another way to pay, depending on what country you are in...

Question: You still running Quickbooks 2007 on an XP VM? I found out today you can run older versions on 8.1 64bit if you set the QB PDF Converter printer ports to the NIL port. Keeps it from hanging on reconciliation / PDF creation. Was wondering if that's why you were running it on XP. [permalink]

Reply on May 13 2015, 3:09pm:
    Yeah, but mostly so that the installation is portable (I can fire up the VM on whatever machine I need it on).

Question: How do you feel about dropping PPC support for Reaper? It's becoming a liability rather than an useful thing, don't you think? [permalink]
Asked by Mario (141.136.181.x) on May 12 2015, 7:33pm
Reply on May 13 2015, 3:09pm:
    Yeah, only one person has complained in the 6 months (?) since we dropped it. It does simplify things. Though we still build PPC binaries for bridging purposes, at least for another year or two.

Question: CRT breaking changes and more... tinyurl.com/l29pmvx --- What you think about the changes, not moving to 2015 anytime soon but do you see any issues with WDL? [permalink]

    Probably some minor things but nothing too drastic, I'd guess

Question: Does this make sense: bit.ly/1I1eQxY ? What do you think, would it make a difference? Or some other trick could be employed? [permalink]

    I suppose, however Lua is in many ways cleaner to use for REAPER's purposes anyway...

    Ah, their audioloopspec. Making a .zip with a .wav and .XML file is a bit silly, when they could just embed it as a RIFF tag (RIFF is *designed* for that sort of thing). So, meh.

Question: Did you catch Silicon Valley last night? They introduced a character who helped invent internet radio. His company was later acquired by AOL. Wonder where they got that from? :) [permalink]

Reply on April 28 2015, 12:15pm (edited at April 29 2015, 12:13am):
    This is obviously based on broadcast.com and Mark Cuban, presumably they made it AOL rather than Yahoo to keep it fictionalized. He even mentions buying Internet rights to radio, which is what broadcast.com did...

    Oh also I didn't bring radio to the internet, just pirate radio.

    I'll assume you mean "how old are you?" -- 36 I think, unless I lost my math skills with old age.

Question: I think I found a nice compromise: hook when needed (thanks to project_config_extension_t and csurf callbacks), unhook from hook itself when we're 100% positive there won't be no new changes to title bar. Now if only GetProjectStateChangeCount() worked, we could optimize it even further - isn't that like a one-line fix for you guys? :) [permalink]
