    Had to google those to find out what they were, so that should answer the question.

    There's sort of a continuum there, I guess... but since properly drunk or stoned, a long time.

    Various things, REAPER for linux is one of them. Hours per week -- the last week I took off, so about 5. Normally more than that, but I don't really keep track.

    Usually that's when I'm tired and emotional

Question: I would love to read an article about the challenges while making REAPER multi-threaded. Is OOP good enough for parallelism and what's your thoughts about DOD? [permalink]

    Hah, well I could try to remember the things I did a decade ago, but...

Question: Are there any technical limitations to supporting more than 62/64 hardware MIDI I/O? Not asking as a FR/fix, just genuinely curious. [permalink]
Asked by EvilDragon (213.202.92.x) on May 17 2017, 3:03pm
Reply on May 18 2017, 1:40pm:
    We have an int64 mask for enabled bits for devices, that's about the only limitation. The other places should handle it OK.

Question: Is MP3 encoding/decoding coming in REAPER now that the patents expired? [permalink]
Asked by Balloonist (79.131.91.x) on May 13 2017, 7:36pm
Reply on May 18 2017, 1:40pm:
    Probably, though there's some noise about two patents that expire in August and December.

Question: Can I shallow clone your WDL repo somehow (for SWS dev) ? Apparently shallow cloning doesn't work via http. / re: shallow clone, solved,used your GitHub mirror instead. [permalink]

    Our WDL repository is pretty small anyway

    Not any time soon... I have toyed with the idea of making v.999 GPL, maybe sooner rather than later (already over 10 years, eep!)

Question: You see all these tutorials about coding these days. They talk about C++, Python, etc. However, it seems like just basic tutorial stuff most of the time. But, what is the best way to learn so one can really create valuable stuff like Winamp? [permalink]

Reply on May 8 2017, 1:26pm:
    Once you get proficient at the basic stuff then you build useful things on top of it...

Question: I posted a thread (reaper.fm) that packaging reaper for the Store on W10 is not a technical complication. Can we expect to see Reaper in the Windows (Microsoft) Store? Dont you think students access to Reaper even if they're on 10S is a good idea? [permalink]

Reply on May 7 2017, 9:36pm:
    Choosing whether to participate in an entirely different ecosystem is a complex decision, and I don't think you can unequivocally say that there is no technical complication.

Question: Will you post a picture of your workstation setup (screens and overall workspace)? [permalink]

    Tomorrow when there's more light I will, now it's too dark to get the screen and physical desktop...

    27" at 2560x1440 is pretty nice... a second monitor for debug output can be nice, but not a big deal.
