Question: The font size of " do not ask questions about REAPER..." above is small. That's why, maybe, people can't read it properly and ask you about features, bugs or scheduling :P okay, a proper question - Do you go to gym or prefer workout only at home?

Question: I have just start using Microsoft Visual Studio. And made some simple programs like calculator. Is it possible to make a full-fledged software (like REAPER) just with only Visual Studio, without using anything else? Or do I need something else also?

Reply on April 8 2019, 9:40pm:
    Visual Studio is probably all you need, but I'd imagine you'd use various third party libraries to make things easier.

Question: If REAPER ever become open-source (as you said before that it may, right?), then what will be the pros and cons of it? Tbh, I find open source softwares less stable & buggier than the proprietary softwares

Question: 1. I'm currently working on a GetTracknumberByGuid-function for my API and noticed, that Breeder's GetTrackGuid-function from SWS returns a different guid for mastertracks(one with only 0 in it) than the "official" one. I want to make the function work 100%, so: how safe is it to take a guid returned by Breeder's function with all 0 in them? Is there a chance that such a guid will be given to another track at some point(even if it's unlikely)? 2. I also try to figure out, how to use the Render-Queue for re

Question: Do you have experience with win virtual machines? Seeing how many plugins and other stuff are there to install etc...one wonders if it would be viable to have it all on virtual machine which would enable you to run it on any machine. Million dollar question is 'what's the overhead in term of CPU, latency etc...'. Do you think modern day technology is ready for this approach?

    Hmm not really, probably grew out of that at some point. The biggest thing I can think of is that I've had a ton of canon (D)SLRs, but that's more about lens compatibility than loyalty...

Question: Doesn't seem like anyone's mentioned it in a while... Have you given VCV Rack any more attention? The dev seems like your kind of cat, and the program is great. I've been obsessing over it. I really want to integrate it into my Super8 template.

Question: LICE provides functions such as WritePNG that are useful but not listed in reaper_plugin_functions.h. Can plugins load these via REAPER when LICE_PROVIDED_BY_APP? (Perhaps as hidden functions, similar to the CoolSB functions?)

    REAPER doesn't include PNG writing support, so you'll have to add lice_png_write.cpp (and pnglib) to your project yourself!

Question: Hi justin! do you think users that ask for Area/range selection in reaper is a consequence of their lack of their skills to use reaper or a feature that is missing in reaper?

Question: Justin, i just watched an interview with you about Reaper and felt obliged to write on this board, that you are pure inspiration for a developer. You are like an icon for software developers(at least to me). You are the Jake Gyllenhaal of programming :) Seriously, seeing how down to earth and humble you are is very uplifting. The code bits you've published on 1014 have been very helpful and will continue to be to a lot of programmers(post more). Why aren't other high profile software developers like you?
