Question: I have no knowledge of VST plugin technicalities. Is/could VST3 plugins be more processor effective/lighter on the CPU than VST2's?

    Best possible scenario if you used all of the features available (silence reporting etc), very very slightly in some circumstances. But I'd say negligible.

Question: When you guys pull a dev feature is it temporary like to work on it more, or maybe not the right time or are they long lost? e.g. container items, just curious, since it's thought and work put in to just scrap. Is this breaking the do not ask about these rule? It's more on the what do you do on those cases side of things

    It depends, usually it would be because we don't like the implementation and we'd probably want to redesign it. I can't say anything about that specific thing though because I don't really know.

    Not sure what it is, though obviously things like acupuncture do things (especially dry needling hah!), and the body is incredibly complex so it makes sense that there would be complex interactions. Not sure to what extent it is understood by any system, though if people find patterns they are likely useful.

Question: Hello Justin. Walking through your vast library of musical creations, I have the impression that in this field you are looking for the opposite of what the activity of coding forces you to achieve. There is a taste of unfinished business that haunts your musical production. You invoke music for what it has to give of true in its imperfection, in its non-programmatic way, right ? Since these two opposing activities, each one in their own radical way, must cancel each other out, how do you arbitrate this ?

    Perhaps the yin and the yang? Perhaps there are more similarities than differences, in that they are always in a state of evolution and improvement etc etc.

Question: Is JSFX derived from the SPS plugin for Winamp?
Asked by Kevin (152.172.161.x) on November 22 2022, 6:56am
Reply on November 22 2022, 7:13pm:
    It is conceptually similar and was based on the same zlib-licensed EEL library that we made for AVS, but other than that initial library it doesn't share anything else.

Question: Do you use Assembler/machine code in REAPER's code (besides C/C++)?
Asked by wasereb4 (79.246.90.x) on November 21 2022, 1:50am
Reply on November 21 2022, 2:33pm:
    Not really, though we do in some places like EEL2 (which generates assembler from JSFX), and the sinc resampling uses SSE3 intrinsics which is more or less assembler with C syntax.

    DistroKid and Soundrop. Both work well, the latter is probably a better deal, but I've used the former a lot more.

Question: The volume envelope is currently processed along with inserts in the necessary anticipative render-ahead buffer. This is bad for skilled volume fader users. Can this be changed , so we do not need to arm a track to have lag-less(as much as possible) volume envelope recording ?

Question: Hey Justin, do you know Judee Sill's music? Mind blowing stuff. (Her third unfinished album isn't on spotify, youtube has it though, was produced after she died). 'My Man on Love', 'I'm Over', 'That's the Spirit', she has #1 spot for awe-filled music for me (#2 elliott smith). All the best

    WinMain() on win32 is 610 lines, main() on linux is 316 lines, main() on macOS is 9 lines... of course the scope of those functions vary ;)

Question: Is there ever any chance for a mactintosh ReaJS plug akin to the PC one? (Or i guess, opensourcing).. using reajs with great success in Bidule/PC but any potential growth of this idea space is necessarily limited to the wintel world. Just asking etc etc thanks for the great work

Reply on November 16 2022, 12:56am:
    Eventually when we open source JSFX someone can do it. It's sort of a pain because there's a fair bit of win32 code in there, and to do a mac port you'd have to static link with some SWELL stuff and it might get messy. Eventually though...
