Reply on November 7 2019, 10:01pm:
    I mostly just use REAPER as-is :). As for hiring, I'm a terrible manager (and don't enjoy managing people) so it's something I avoid.
Question: Would you like to make a general statement about REAPER users? I.e., are you inspired by your zealous community/fanbase; what do you respect about Reapanites most?

    Hmm if I search using private browsing on google we come up first? but no I wouldn't imagine that would be a problem, there's not much potential for confusion...

    Having said that, I just searched on Bing and it had a misleading ad first, which linked to https://www.nch.com.au/mixpad/ ... that's not cool.

Question: Can you please explain the advantage of 64 Bit floating processing? I understand that this leads to less calculation errors, but is there actually an audible difference?
Asked by Tobias (195.81.221.x) on November 4 2019, 11:31am
Reply on November 4 2019, 3:01pm:
    32 bit floating point is plenty of precision for representing pretty much any signal, but any time you do any nontrivial calculation with it, you end up with small rounding errors, which by themselves are almost always insignificant. But do enough of these calculations, and they start accumulating. Does it always sound better? No. Can it in some instances? Yes.

Question: Hi, long shot, but is there any chance you have (or will have in the future) openings for remote internships/junior developer jobs? I'd love to work on music software (even though I definitely lack the qualifications, to be upfront about it) :)

Question: I'm enjoying going through the music on here. What do you think is your best stuff? I'm sure I'd get to it eventually, but there's a lot to listen to.

    No idea, in need of massive curation ;) The last two open studios shows (October 12 and 13th) are pretty chill...
Question: What do you think about this idea: A mp3 player with predictive technology, using neural networks and artificial intelligence. A player that learns when you play and rate the songs, allowing you to scan your hard disk to analyze, without listening the mp3, the tracks you could like or not. It's like a giant brain, listening songs to the speed of light but according to your tastes. I have pasted the whole idea in this link: pastebin.com/dhNY0xui

Question: hey- when you 1st started reaper- was the original idea to incorporate hardware with it? and os too? (what happened?)
Asked by blove (2.25.95.x) on November 1 2019, 12:34am
Reply on November 1 2019, 2:57am:
    No, but making REAPER evolved out of making the Jesusonic prototype, which was linux-based and hardware etc.
