    For future reference please email me rather than post here. It's probably a bug in our end, I'll see if I can reproduce and see why.

Question: Will you guys release both 32 & 64 bit REAPER 6 or just 64 bit? Newly released Studio one 4, Live 10 & Reason 10 stopped developing 32 bit and only provides 64 bit software. Actually, now it's better to stop having compatibility for older computers since 99% people use 64 bit now and soon, no one will use 32 bit. Barely there are people who use Windows XP, m [permalink]

    We have no plans to drop 32-bit support any time soon.

Question: Is it as secret what is going to be in Reaper 6 or everything would be posted in Pre-release discussion? [permalink]

    It will all go into the pre-release discussion before release, but before it goes there it might be secret.

    It can be tricky, yeah, especially when you want to have editing that affects things both before and after a change.

Question: What laptop/OS/interface combo would you recommend for running Reaper on linux? What do you test on? [permalink]

Reply on May 23 2018, 8:30pm:
    Hmm I dunno, for linux I mostly a C2Q w/ Debian, RT kernel, RME HDSP PCI card for recording. I also have a Thinkpad X60 with a Zoom R24 and Debian I use for live performance, but it's not as reliable for me (though part of that might just be that it's underpowered...). Definitely like the RME hardware.

Question: Do you consider to stop working on reaper at some point? [permalink]

    They should make the VST2 headers public domain, IMO, if they're going to stop distributing it. To make it unavailable via legal channels would be a disservice to humanity.

Question: I have a reaper licence and only use native linux Reaper and its more stable than logic pro on a macbook pro. Why not make Linux reaper official? [permalink]

    Happy to hear it's working well for you! ..but alas a lot of people have differing expectations, and also the userbase is relatively small so it's tough to fully "support" it. But someday...

Question: There are times that I love my keyboard more than my girlfriend. Don't worry, she doesn't know... Which brings me to my question: Do you get emotionally attached to plastic keyboards, software or anything that you might use everyday? [permalink]

    Not anymore, maybe when I was younger... Though I once got sad when I thought I had lost my stainless water bottle. Oh also I will be genuinely sad when my bike gets stolen.

Question: Is there anyone on the Reaper forums that just bugs the hell outta you? Like “ugh this person again...” [permalink]

    Other than genuine trolls and stuff, no... what gets me is non-descriptive bug reports ;)

Reply on May 17 2018, 4:14pm:
    I'd say 33ms or lower -- the frequency at which you would reasonably expect any UI updates to happen (30Hz minimum, 60Hz would be nice too).

Question: Do you think is there a relationship between the musician's and the developer's mindsets? [permalink]
