    (original link) Each version is subtracted from the scene with me absent, then the results are all summed on top of the background. It is far from perfect, to do better one would chromakey, or manually define the regions (since I rarely overlap)...

    I forget exactly, but it might have had something to do with everybody thinking it was from Hackers, as opposed to the great songs by The Cure and NIN...

    I'd guess around 5GB a day of outbound and less than 1GB a day of inbound.

    I think SF would win by a decent margin (especially with the NYPD harassing cyclists), even though SF is so much more car-centric (not to mention hilly) than NYC. NYC is without a doubt more pedestrian-friendly, though.

Question: Has being considered an Atheist negatively affected your business or personal relationships in that "I don't wanna get struck by lightning standing next to this guy" way? [permalink]

    Not that I know of, but I also don't go out of my way to yell people who believe in different things either...

    I'm probably considered an atheist, humanist, and borderline democratic socialist.

    It is growing, and the growth rate is also growing as far as I can tell.

Question: Why does Reasamplomatic not get the last little push to make it perfect for drums in Reaper (better RR handling / mute groups / option to not save content with Project) ? A couple of Reaperites (myself, Tod and SMM) are working on the next round of our super drums for Reaper users and some of these shortcomings make it pretty hard... [permalink]

    See note above.

Question: Are you aware of the workflows mixers engage in on Harrison consoles and Icon/ProtoolsHD systems ? And if not, have you made efforts to aquire this knowledge for the sake of a good chance of improving mixing workflows in Reaper ? [permalink]

    I've seen various workflows but I don't know if I know of the one you speak.

    Sort of (I get paid, but it's not really about the money).

Question: Justin, can you tell me if Reaper (as released currently) can losslessly accept, store, play, and save 32-bit integer ASIO files? I'm assuming no math processing on the files. Just record, store, playback, and file save. TY. [permalink]
Asked by John (23.114.218.x) on January 3 2015, 3:56pm
Reply on January 4 2015, 5:46am:
    Yes, though if you want to put 32 bit integers to disk you'd either need to use 64 bit FP WAV (which would be wasteful but would otherwise preserve exactly the 32 bit integer signal), or 32 bit AIFF.

Question: Re: I have this bit.ly/1I4D5XB and need this bit.ly/1I4Dd9w. Idea is to auto-calculate tabs needed for indentation, but I'm having problems with CachedFont.DrawText(). On win I found it's enough to call DrawText with DT_EDITCONTROL but there's no such thing in SWELL and this code bit.ly/1EUEcgh does this on OSX bit.ly/1CZhul9. Got any advice? Thanks! [permalink]

Reply on January 2 2015, 7:11pm:
    I'd just calculate the rects and draw them manually at a lower level, personally.

Question: My team is trying to make an FFT bandpass filter to batch-extract harmonics (c++). ReaFIR gives the perfect output: correct amplitude and phase of the harmonic/sinewave. Our code gives the right phase, but wrong amplitude of the harmonic. Any ideas? Are there any common pitfalls that you can think of that would cause this?" This is semi-related to our eventu [permalink]

    I'd need to see some code, I think.
