    iirc it is the same as audio volume (e.g. 1=unmodified, 0.5=multiply by 0.5, etc).

Question: Hey Justin, which audio backends do you use for REAPER? I've been looking for something cross-platform that isn't locked with licenses, so far it's looking like supporting xaudio2 initially and adding additional support where needed, I'd assume you'd fairly heavily abstract your sound api? Thanks

Question: I hope it is ok to ask this here: in REAPER, if i have, for example, 50 tracks with lots of inserts, some with sends to each other, some folders, and all their outputs are being sent to 24 buses. And I use ReaStream/ReaRoute on those buses to send to another DAW. How is the latency compensation calculated? Will audio arrive on perfect time or I should be cautious? I will be running some tests but I'd like to understand how this works a bit more. Also, is Reastream sample-accurate with a cabled LAN? Thanks!

    definitely better on the forum, but in general reastream isn't really good for this. If you do it, make a single 64 channel reastream instance, send everything to that, then have that send to the other place.

    I would like to say that I wouldn't, but it would be so obviously an over-valuation that it would be hard to pass up. But I wouldn't keep the money.

Question: Is it in your plans to have a UX/UI/Workflow redesign for Reaper 7.x? I love Reaper, I have a full license, but it would be amazing to have it more natively integrated with extensions and redesigned visually....Impossible to explain without making references to other DAWs :)

    redesign, no, but we'll keep evolving it as to not require anybody to have major adaptation issues.

Question: I'm curious as a pedestrian n00b why it's important for the license to say cockos always maintains ownership? ELI5?

    Ownership has a lot of rights associated with it! If you owned REAPER itself, you could do a million things, like sell copies to other people.

Question: so,would LOVE to purchase some more cockos licenses (i mean,who wouldnt) but on slightly different terms of agreement-- is any license negotiable,or non.?

Reply on November 1 2022, 8:08pm:
    you can email support with your requested changes but you should include the explanation for the changes, and we might consider it, though as our terms are very reasonable and widely accepted we might also not.

Question: Is JSFX an interpreted or compiled language? How does its performance compare to C++? Are there any benchmarks somewhere?
Asked by Francesco (93.41.113.x) on October 29 2022, 4:55pm
Reply on October 29 2022, 7:39pm:
    It is compiled. If you carefully optimize the code it's probably about half the speed of typical non-SIMD C++. Some things are slower, e.g. memory accesses using [], since it involves bounds checking and conversion to integer, etc.
