Question: EEL2: Could you give me a hint where to look at if I want to add sections (@mysection) and descriptions (myslider:10)? Thanks
Asked by Gio (94.70.4.x) on December 7 2021, 5:56pm
Reply on December 7 2021, 6:20pm:
    Those are JSFX language features, EEL2 itself doesn't have sections or attributes. We are preparing to release the JSFX source (likely LGPL), but it will probably be a few months before it is ready.

Question: Just started getting into recording/production using Reaper. My background is in networking/servers, but about 5 years ago I switched into data analytics, and use Python a lot, so I'm at least intermediate level with that. Question: I would like to start exploring how to write plug-ins and other audio related software. Any recommendations, resources, tips what to do (and not to do), regarding how/where to get started?
Asked by Dean (71.115.202.x) on December 4 2021, 5:11pm
Reply on December 4 2021, 11:04pm:
    Despite your proficiency in Python, its integration with REAPER is really poor when compared to Lua or EEL2, so I'd suggest you start with Lua. Learning more languages is a good thing, anyway :) Not sure where the best starting point is, though.

Question: hey- after reading @reasontalk i noticed a few users are jumping ship to reaper (they saw the light!) after RS applied their "subscription modelling" - 2 questions here (1 unrelated) : any plans to introduce subscription for reaper? (for studio licences?) and: are there any plans for JPEG XL support in near future??

    Song titles -- we mostly pick them at random when its a band (I maybe do 75% of them but sometimes the others do)... initial ideas, usually just wandering to find them
