    Waiting for the bubble to pop, only question is how high it will go! Crazy though. Totally crazy.
Question: Has your opinion of functional programmed changed since the last time someone asked about it? What style/paradigm/philosophy influences Reaper the most?

    I dunno, it's not something I think about much.

    Thanks! Bands I've listened to recently, randomly off the top of my head in no particular order: Mogwai, Radiohead, Gabor Szabo, Can, Menomena, Papier Tigre, Portishead, Deerhoof, Built to Spill, Portugal The Man...

    Inspiration -- playing with other people can be fantastic, just played with two friends today and had plenty of songs to improve sing on the bike ride home.
Question: Tell the truth, my consistent "inappropriate" ARA questions made you finally cave in? Either way, thank you, thank you, thank you!

    No, I was resolved, schwa is the one finishing it ;)
Question: Hi Justin, I'm sorry I don't want to bother you with nodal stuff again but could you give API function for that at least? It's really needed. Thank you for your time

    Forums, man.
Question: When swapping FX order via chunk, FXGUID's are not reordered, see goo.gl/aouFHN.Background: Trying to fix goo.gl/pUoG6i.Wondering, is this intended behaviour and SWS should work around it (manually swapping FXGUID's afterwards?) or a bug which could be fixed in R. ?

    email me or PM me on the forum, better place to discuss than here. Just took a look -- it's because SnM/SnM_ChunkParserPatcher.h RemoveAllIds() removes the FXID lines, duh.
Question: I just discovered this GPL/Multi-OS Sampler (and his intriguing HLAC audio encoding) and wanted to let you know: github.com/christophhart/HISE/

    Nifty, I'll assume you're asking me if I've tried it -- I haven't.
Question: are there any code examples showing how you do rea..Plug guis? e.g. non iplug reaper vsts?

Question: oh really? why do you keep that information private?
Asked by aombk (87.203.75.x) on November 28 2017, 4:40pm
Reply on November 28 2017, 5:22pm:
    There's no advantage to making it public that I can see.
Question: do you have some kind of data or can you estimate how many people use reaper?
Asked by aombk (87.203.75.x) on November 28 2017, 3:15pm
Reply on November 28 2017, 3:48pm:
    Yes, roughly, but we keep that information private.
Question: Have you ever been approached by any "big" companies that wanted to buy you out?

    Not lately
Question: How has your concentration level changed as you've aged? Are you able to stay focused as long as you did when you were 18? Any noticeable changes?
Asked by Will (50.84.190.x) on November 27 2017, 7:08pm
Reply on November 27 2017, 9:11pm:
    Hard to say, I'd like to think the problems I work on now are more complex than the ones I worked on then...
Question: do you advertise reaper? have you ever had a booth at NAMM or other shows/expos? what is your opinion about these things? do they help?
Asked by aombk (87.203.75.x) on November 27 2017, 12:03pm
Reply on November 27 2017, 2:03pm:
    No and no. My opinion is that those things are incredibly tedious and I'd rather spend my time programming and testing and making music and drinking coffee and running. :)
Question: Hi Justin, how's it going? Excuse me if I'm wrong but I wonder why do you avoid creation any nodal routing and modulation in Reaper?
Asked by Ivan (217.25.213.x) on November 26 2017, 8:37pm
Reply on November 27 2017, 12:28am:
    We did a little work on something like that (at least for visualization of effective routing) but then lost interest...

Question: top 3 best coffee by country?

Reply on November 25 2017, 1:01am:
    Ambiguous question... so many ways to answer. I think my favorite latte in NYC is from Gasoline Alley on Lafayette and Bleecker... That’s only one thing, but it’s an answer to a question you were not asking. Maybe you were talking about places coffee is grown? Or what countries make the best coffee drinks? In case of the former, I would say that variety is the spice of life eh, and the second, I only have limited experience in countries where i’ve consumed coffee...
Question: Hello, i am a audio plugin developer. the licensing model of reaper is interesting. i have a couple of questions about it and about some other things. is there a way we can talk, but not in front of everybody?

    Sure, email should be easy to figure out (first name, company name)
