    What simple website do you wish existed but doesn't? It probably won't earn you anything but if you're just in it for the money you're going to have a bad time mmmkay?

Question: Is there any further development planned for Reamote? The ultimate goal I have in mind is to be able to run old Windows plugins on a Mac using a Reamote slave running inside a Crossover Mac bottle

Question: Whenever reinstalling Windows (or a new system) I always default to Winamp 2.81. The last one without full web and any integration. I still use it for all music playback and will continue to do so as long as it works. Any plans on updating/creating/remaking a version of a PLAYER of sorts that does the same thing? No resource hog, same controls, etc.? One day Cont'd: it will stop working. And I can't code so I can't do it myself. P.S. The spectrum voiceprint analyzer doesn't work at all. No matter what I try. It does work under Win XP in VirtualBox (I tried) but not in Windows 10. Any tips on making it work (with Winamp 2.81)? Thanks.

    Sort of been there done that, you know? Re: voiceprint analyzer, I'd guess that there's some DirectDraw issue with Win10, maybe... Try running Winamp in Windows XP compatibility mode?

Question: Sorry to ask Reaper question... in the arrange area, clicking with a Wacom pen to move cursor doesn’t always register single (left) clicks. Do you have any idea why? It always registers when clicking on the time / ruler area above without fail. I find this odd. Ive tried all different Pen settings, no luck. Thanks

Reply on November 11 2017, 11:44pm:
    If I had to guess it would be because the arrange area has scrollbars, the Wacom driver probably looks at it and decides to handle things differently.

Question: Did you ever go through a phase where you tried to gain muscle? How often do you lift weights these days?

Reply on November 10 2017, 9:48pm (edited at November 10 2017, 9:51pm):
    Nah I do calisthenics and stuff but never really lift weights. Besides, building too much muscle would hurt my running performance...

Question: Re: That's exactly my worry. It seems to me that the motto ``write once, compile anywhere'' loses ground with that approach, plus modern C++ standards aren't helping at all with added complexity, etc. But, does it really matter these days?

Question: It looks like Google Chrome M62 tackled portability issues by using clang across Win/Mac/Linux. What do you think of their approach? I know you follow the same approach more or less with ICC, could you give some insights from your experience with REAPER?

Reply on November 7 2017, 2:44pm:
    Hmm, seems to me like if you have to use a specific compiler then you're code isn't as portable as it should be?
