Question: A big big thanks to make Linux binaries of Reaper available!!! Will Reaper for Linux for ever be an "experimental" release?

Question: Have you tried any of the recent versions of VS (>= VS2015) that use the Universal CRT for legacy applications and what's your thoughts about it? I am very skeptical for an update to those any time soon, particularly, the deployment model looks like asking for trouble.

Question: Interesting, how you come up with an EEL2 name? Does it have something in common with EEL? :)
Asked by Pony (78.152.169.x) on November 13 2018, 10:46am
Reply on November 13 2018, 1:20pm:
    EEL2 evolved out of NSEEL (Nullsoft Expression Evaluation Library) which was part of AVS (started by Francis/lonedfx), during JSFX development. There was already an unrelated EEL. So there we go...

Question: Are you aware that you are indirectly responsible for educating some number of people about coding. Be it through releasing open source or just getting people to tinker with REAPER and try and follow professional development pace. I can honestly say that REAPER has teached me coding from the groups up and I use that knowledge for all sorts of cool things now...How do you feel about that? Are you even aware of this teacher role you (accidentally?) got assigned?

    Programming is a joy so I'm happy to encourage people to play with it! REAPER as a platform for programming (ReaScript, JSFX, Video Processors) is incredibly satisfying for me as much as anybody else...

Question: Love your music. How are you miking your drums in your recordings? It sounds minimal and perfect.

    Thanks!

    At the moment two kits are set up: the first, Andre's old slingerland, has a large diaphragm condenser above and to the side (equidistant from the snare), and a E604 on the kick (outside). The second kit, the Sonor Bop, has a XY pair of condensers above, a E604 on the snare, and a Audix kick mic (forget the model) inside the kick. Before the Slingerland showed up, I had E604s on the toms of the Bop, but meh. :)

Question: Just curious on GUID generation. Can REAPER guarantee at all times that take GUID won't repeat EVER in a project once it was generated for the take?
Asked by John (93.142.96.x) on November 11 2018, 9:18pm
Reply on November 12 2018, 12:31pm:
    It is very (very) unlikely that the same GUID would be generated twice, but it's possible that some extension or script or a bug in an in-built action could cause multiple takes to share a GUID, yes. If REAPER causes it it would be a bug, though.

    Right now I'm typing at my desk, on a mid-2014 Retina MBP 15" (quad core i7 with 16GB RAM) hooked up to a thunderbolt display. It's pretty handy. In the studio I have a Q9400 (2.6ghz, 8GB RAM maybe?) running Linux for recording, using a RME HDSP 9652 (PCI card).

Question: There's more and more REAPER stuff getting released by other people. What do you think, would it be good idea to start including those as separate purchases through REAPER web. Why not give other developers a chance to actually make the living. Some stuff being released is insanely genius and deserves a proper release channel. After all, you relied on the community for so long calling it your biggest asset. I get bug fixing responsibility is a question here, but I bet it's solvable
