Question: Hi Justin! Would you please consider adding a Chinese Forum to "REAPER Non-English Speaking User Forums"? Lots of my friends are using RP, and I think they would be very cheerful to see it! ; )

    It's tricky because when adding a foreign language forum, you usually want to have a few trusted forum users who speak the language and who are willing to function as moderators. Without that it's risky... :/
Question: A bit quiet in here the last days, no?

    Not unusually so, I'd think.
Question: What do you think about the return of Winamp?

Reply on October 15 2018, 10:28pm:
    I've long since stopped caring about what happens to it ;) I've spent more than twice as long working on REAPER than I did on Winamp. And I use REAPER every day.
Question: Have you consider AppImage for Linux builds?

    I haven't looked at that yet...
Question: Your favorite candy bar, cereal, and icecream?

    Hmm snickers is pretty good, not sure I have a favorite. Cereal, I've been in to muesli lately. Ice cream: soft serve.
Question: I was curious to know if exists somewhere the source code for the wasabi framework. At the time of winamp3 i was so glad it was tentatively cross-platform

Question: Will REAPER installer's size ever cross 50 MB? Or even, 20-30 MB in future? Are there legacy codes in REAPER?

Reply on October 10 2018, 1:59pm:
    Maybe? Not sure what you mean about legacy codes, but there's definitely a lot of stuff that we'd like to remove but are stuck with, hah. "feature latch".
Question: Are you familiar with Halt And Catch Fire? If so, thoughts?

    I've tried to watch it a couple of times and failed
Question: If you do that, please have a look at the latest mod of baby sequencer here then: stash.reaper.fm/v/20869/seq%20mega...I've created a full-blown sequencer configuration for REAPER and this mod is quite useful in real-life scenarios. Hard to explain, you have to play with it all in real projects to get the sense what and how. For example, I currently have special macros for my project only that will record disable for recording into sequencer etc...lots of things to consider, but oh the fun...

Question: Is there something in REAPER you regret having implemented the way you did because later on you wanted to change it but it's difficult/impossible for not breaking things etc.?
Asked by wasereb4 (94.134.90.x) on October 4 2018, 3:19am
Reply on October 4 2018, 1:00pm:
    Tons of things, sure. Sometimes they get overhauled (the way regions were stored originally was as a pair of markers, ugh), other times not (MIDI items/editors/etc).
Question: Do you know Haiku OS?

    I haven't used it but I'm familiar with its existence (via BeOS)...
Question: Super8 is a beautiful thing I'm trying to start using. In tandem with baby sequencer you can practically create music on the go. With the right configuration I think it's the best sequencer combo on the market. Yes, even better than live. Good job on that and thanks for sharing. Not a question, I know - but this sequencing stuff is pretty inspiring

    Ah I've not used it with sequencer_baby, that's interesting. Maybe we could make them sync up via a special back-channel...
Question: Re q=4346s: You're right,it's (mostly) straightforward. Swell rocks,even theming works! My Q: CoreMIDI has MIDISend() which is,if Im not mistaken,able to send outside of any callback (in the main thread). Jack doesn't seem to have an equivalent. I would use Jacks ringbuffers to pass data to process() (see tinyurl.com/y9sdedsz How would u do it?

    I'd probably be lazy and use a mutex-protected queue of messages, but that'd effectively be the same thing...
Question: In the homepage of reaper.fm, down below 'New in Version 5' -> 'Video', is that you playing the guitar, right behind the drummer in a gif image?

    I just read the code of conduct -- it seems fine. I don't get the criticism, most of it makes very little sense based on the actual code.
Question: In regards to the first question - what's the most complicated thing you ever created in REAPER and actually used to create an art piece? Not code wise, feature wise.
Asked by John (78.0.253.x) on October 1 2018, 8:21pm
Reply on October 1 2018, 10:30pm:
    I use the Super8 JSFX a lot! In fact I'm uploading yet another youtube video of a practice. Not sure if it's the most complicated but it's something.
Question: If you were presented with 100% customized REAPER rig - how fast would you be able to use it in regards to your own setup? I guess you would too have a learning curve - that's kinda scary and cool at the same time, lol

    Depends on if I'm allowed to reset key bindings and menus back to normal haha. I do sometimes use other peoples setups, and it's a bit like trying to type on a foreign keyboard -- some things work, others definitely do not!
Question: What are your thoughts: on the Mr.Robot TV Show? (If you have seen it)

    First season was A+, after that A- (still good but hard to follow the first). Really good production and music and design throughout.
Question: Re: flipped coordinates in swell: 1) If not flipped, right/bottom are outside rect. If flipped, which are outside? 2) How is ScreenToClient calculated? Relative to the flipped or to the actual left/top?

    This would be better asked via email or forums, I'll check the forums for that.
Question: Is it possible to use a reaper.array as parameter type or return type in a ReaScript API function that is provided by a C++ extension? If yes, how is the size of the array passed between script and extension?
