Question: Simplest way to make a custom control with WDL? a REAPER-like slider or tab control. [permalink]
Asked by Gio (79.130.161.x) on September 16 2017, 4:36pm
Reply on September 16 2017, 5:29pm:
    That's too vague, maybe post on the forums with more details as to what you're looking for (you want to make a new HWND, or a WDL_VWnd based control? It's unclear...)

Question: While on subject of ARA: it's not just for Melodyne. There are other plugins like VocALign that use it, so asking every plugin to support Reaper API is probably also not gonna happen... Sadly as much as people love Reaper, you guys don't have the industry pull for other devs to implement your API into their plugins, except Voxengo, heh. [permalink]

    OK fine a handful of plugins. It would probably take them an hour or two to add support for the REAPER API (which is flexible and incredibly simple), and the end result would be a lot more efficient and flexible IMO.

Question: Spy++... I don't have/use Visual Studio, and that seems to be the only way to get it?... [permalink]

    Yep, I think so here.

Question: Since Schwa successfully completed Automation Items while you took a breather (Linux stuff doesn't count), does that mean that you're up next for the ARA integration? Are you looking forward to getting back in the game? [permalink]

    This is inappropriate subject matter, again. But while I have you here, ARA is the wrong solution to the problem, a good solution would be for Melodyne to support the REAPER API to access samples. Making ARA fit into REAPER for one plug-in is too ugly.

Question: Re: mouse. More Justin humor? :)... I would but it's the only one I have. And it was kinda pricey for a mouse, so I really want it to work everywhere :( [permalink]

    Can you run spy++ and see what messages it is sending?

Question: I am having horrible issues with horizontal mousewheel not working in Reaper as supposed to... Thread exists since May this year (t=192376)... Please check post #16 because I think I have the issue nailed, it's not just Logitech drivers, it's Reaper messing something up as well... Sorry for posting here but I really want this to work with Reaper! [permalink]

    Send me the mouse I guess? :)

Question: I have started building my own personal (non public) daw, but every couple of days I randomly hear about some new feature in reaper that makes me doubt I should continue. Spectral editing? Automation items? Seriously? You are going to "steal" users from both the edm kids market and the post guys! Are you trying to annihilate competition in the daw market by [permalink]

    You need surprisingly few features to do interesting things, IMO. Some of the stuff I made with REAPER early on was really fun...

Question: Some more video features (reaper) would be very appreciated. Thank you for this GREAT DAW anyway [permalink]

    Yeah I might add more pixel-mangling tools, but it'll all stay programmer-optimized I think.

Question: Hi, I would like to build a cli based Jesusonic with Raspberry Pi. The old Jesusonic software is only available to x86 Linux. Have you ever think about to breathe new life into your old project, just for fun? I mean would you consider to release the ARM version of the old ncurses Jesusonic? Or source? [permalink]

Question: What happened to Reaper updates.?Last one was in March.. Is it Reaper 6.0 upcoming? :) Hope all is fine with you [permalink]

    5.50 will be along very soon!

Question: I recall a VST plugin for WInamp that codec'd Dolby B for restoring old cassettes. I've got shoeboxes of those, so... VST, huh? will it work with Reaper? [permalink]

Reply on September 13 2017, 1:39am:
    If it was a VST, then obviously it'd work in REAPER... but I imagine you meant there was a Winamp dsp_ plug-in, which would not work in REAPER... sooo....

Question: Not sure if this should be a bug report, but on linux, tooltips are being spawned in their own window, which is messing with my tiling window manager (i3wm). The splash screen is also acting similarly, instead of floating like a normal dialog/splash/tooltip would. Example: https://gfycat.com/ReflectingPiercingBear [permalink]

    You should post this in the pre-release forum, ideally :) Edit: ahh, actually, open your ~/.REAPER/reaper.ini, find the line that says "gdk_borderless_are_override_redirect=auto", and change it to =1. That'll take care of it! Maybe I can make it autodetect i3 and use that option...

Question: Chamath says you guys hired him at WInamp, before AOL bought the company. Is that true? [permalink]

    Edit: listening to the Internet History Podcast interview -- I think Chamath glosses over and/or misremembers some. He never says "before AOL" but he describes it as "Winamp" when it was actually AOL. Chamath's characterizations of AOL and its dysfunction are spot on...

    I'd learn basic programming first. Or BASIC. No just basic.. The hard part is finding something interesting and motivating. Javascript can be satisfying to start with.. but it's hard for me to really say about this, since it was so long since I got started, and when I did it was in a world without access to documentation, starting on an Atari 8-bit w/ BASIC, and later on a IBM PC with Turbo Pascal, then Turbo C. The world today has little in common with those days...
