    ok.

Question: "Not really my cup of tea (it's hard to make something you're not in to...)" you think it is unfair saying that this is noticeable by using reaper? [permalink]

    I think that an essential part of making something is using it, so that's not unfair to say. Whether or not it's true (or at least, whether other people qualified to judge that would agree) is another question.

    vi or emacs? spaces or tabs? I'm kidding, I don't think I have any questions for anybody. Funny though I was just reading that hacker news link about NT being VMS...

Question: How many kilometres can you run per day? [permalink]
Asked by Run! (106.223.174.x) on July 31 2018, 1:27pm
Reply on July 31 2018, 1:46pm:
    The most I've run in a week is about 65km, the most in a day 42km (or 52km of walking+running on the great saunter).. Most days I run around 5-10km.

    I haven't used it, how's the hardware support?

Question: Do you think creating a new plugin standard that is open source a good and/or feasible idea? Being at the mercy of steinberg, apple or avid in perpetuity seems like a bad idea. [permalink]

    This classic cartoon comes to mind:


    But this is a different case, sure, since the standards you describe are proprietary. Perhaps we need to support LV2, huge ugly hacks that it will require aside (complete destroy/create required on sample rate change, among other issues)...

Question: I love you so much! Thank you for everything you do for and in the creative field! I hope your summer is going great? [permalink]

    There are a lot of people on the internet who one has to ignore. The other day I learned that if I were a better musician I would somehow make better DAW design decisions. Who knew?

Question: Why isn't REAPER open source ? (Please don't say b/c you decided so, I mean WHY you decided so :)) [permalink]
Asked by wasereb4 (94.134.90.x) on July 24 2018, 2:30am
Reply on July 24 2018, 1:47pm:
    There are some things difficult to support that way (VST2/VST3 end up as a hybrid open source thing, and ReWire, while not totally relevant today, at one point was important and is not available for open source). Also we wouldn't be able to use elastique...

    Hmm not sure if I have a philosophy. I like to go to the beach, or hiking, or to visit friends, I guess?

Reply on July 23 2018, 10:39pm:
    I must admit I don't write a lot of recursive algorithms, but it's something I'm pretty comfortable with in general...
