    How'd that bet work out? :) Btw, I asked your thoughts on Bitcoin and dispelled some common myths back in 2015 and 2017. Might make sense to consider others *may* have insights you don't.

    When internet stops working (inevitably will happen some point), you definitely don't want to be without music as well. And I want to decide what's in my collection, not let that on someone else. Spotify can and will add and REMOVE songs and albums on quite arbitary basis. And Spotify stream has almost zero value for the artist... so I want to support them by buying the CD :)

    I've used up-converting many times before, mainly to satisfy very strict hardware sampler format issues (for live performance). That's a case where I'm not expecting any extra quality (if it's not there it's not there), but if the target device only accepts one format, then you gotta give it that.

    I agree it's not a good thing, but there's no point in preventing people from doing things. Also hopefully people are smart enough to figure that out (if you _could_ make something sound better that way, why don't mp3 players just do it, and then we could all have 8kbps files that are upconverted to 320kbps... or if I record my audio tape to CD it will be CD quality! YEAH!)

  • Posted by Ninja(m) (104.236.70.x) on May 23 2020, 7:57am in 5236:
    But is it not good to do that. I mean, sending someone a fake 320 kbps song, whereas actually it is only a 128 kbps song. And the converter softwares are misleading people by this and people are thinking that they can gain audio quality by upscaling the song's bitrate, which is really not correct.

    I will be using Debian 9 or later for development but I am also interested for a minimum version for building binaries for distribution; just tested Debian 7 with gcc 4.7.x and gnome-shell 3.4.x, everything built nicely. I think gcc 4.x is the sweet spot for now, but probably need to do more testing to decide if I keep it that way or not. My only concern is the outdated git...

    I can totally see this in Your code, but is programming a tech discipline anymore or more social/humanitarian?

    Peepshow&Dead Set = Awesome!.The Peepshow boys have a new show called 'Back' - But, yet to watch it. Cheers, on the 30 Rock recommendation+brain reminder. I seem to never get around to watching it, even though people say it's great - It's on free TV here now, so will def get into it!. Also Parks & Recreation is cool, I liked it season 2 onwards - season 1 was too much like the U.S Office .BTW - I forgot Archer! Best animated series since The Ren & Stimpy Show IMHO ;)

  • Posted by Justin on May 4 2020, 3:16pm in 5212:
    Ah yeah love Peep Show too. And Charlie Brooker's old zombie show "Dead Set" was great. Flight of the Conchords was great too. US comedies -- 30 Rock was amazing. Parks and Recreation too in a different way. Probably too many others to think of now

    Great taste! W1A & In The Thick of It are ace - check out the writers previous work - ''People like us'' Ricky Gervaise borrowed from it heaps. Also, ''Nathan Barley'' by Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker is great - But the premise became to real & the kids became the farce they were sending up, so only one season ;) The Games and Frontline (Older Aust satire shows that Influenced W1A etc) are great!. Big fan of The Detectorists too..The Mighty boosh is good-love the generational musical taste humour..

    I think things like FCP and premiere can do this, where they fake the frames in between. Doubling every frame to make 30fps content 60fps is still just 30fps content

  • Posted by Abhi (182.64.222.x) on May 1 2020, 5:14am in 5205:
    Is this a software which actually convert 30 fps to 60 fps? Does this double the frames or actually bring all the frames even further closer to each other, so that it actually looks like 60 fps?

    On Mac, plugins who are components cannot be put into a portable installation yet, so they must be installed on every system, who use them. So even if you use only portable versions of Reaper, components-effects cannot be exchanged that easy. We have that problem with our Ultraschall-Soundboard-plugin, for example.

    For example, if someone can only do job for 5 hours for 3 days, maybe due to some another work or urgency, they can only do 5 hour work and have money, and can leave.

  • Posted by Abhi (182.68.65.x) on April 25 2020, 8:27am in 5195:
    In my opinion, hourly payment is great and better than fulltime job. You can just do 3 hours work per day and get the money for it and then you can leave your office and have fun and all. I mean, you are free. You are payed just for the work you do. Not only for programmers, but I think, it would be great for other fields too.

  • Posted by Abhi (182.68.65.x) on April 25 2020, 8:22am in 5198:

  • Posted by Abhi (182.68.65.x) on April 25 2020, 8:19am in 5199:
    Nah, you aren't. Just a beginner in making talking videos, maybe. I have seen one of your video in your YouTube channel, where you were showing Megababy Sequencer while talking. I got the idea from there, haha. Just try to make videos while talking, soon you will get perfection. If you are into this, make sure to create multiple YouTube channels for different contents - like for programming, separate YouTube channel only for programming stuffs, and another channel for music & REAPER stuffs :)

  • Posted by 2020 (2.25.95.x) on April 20 2020, 9:12pm in 5187:
    agreed -192kbps is fine enough for portable speaker devices and low resolution monitoring etc- also it's less taxing on server bandwidth/storage spacing.. still,there is such a thing as generation loss- which can multiply with copies of copies-- so lossless is a lot better in that sense.High qaulity transferes are preferred by serious audiophiles,general public seem to care less.

  • Posted by 2020 (2.25.95.x) on April 20 2020, 9:03pm in 5191:
    yes indeed- very pleased with your humanitarian & slightly animalitarianism progress. Bravo!

  • Posted by Mespotine (2.247.250.x) on April 20 2020, 2:57am in 5187:
    @Try a longer question As bad as "common" headphones are these days, you cannot hear a difference. Most people listen to music using bad equipment. Not everyone is audiophile. And loss of quality between 192 and higher is usually only hearable with the right music/postprocessing(as Justin mentioned). Overproduced/overmastered music(usually these day's pop) is normally prepared for mp3's limitations. I think music with a wide range in dynamics and details can be problematic but everything else usually isn't.

    Oh, those are just music tutorial videos. Those teachers use DAWs to teach lots of topics. I have converted a video of like 2000 kbps bitrate into 512 kbps and I didn't see any issue at all. Both video looks same but reduce file size a lot, like around 1/4th of the original video. So it can make my 1 GB video into 256 MB without any (major?) difference in quality. Btw, is this bitrate similar to audio bitrates (128 kbps, 192 kbps, 320 kbps etc.) ?

    a lot of money is subjective, a lot of of disk space too. For a DAW creator you really think that is the reason to not buy 1 DAW? FLStudio or cubase, or logic or ableton or pro tools or bitwig?? there aren't manny more afaik

    @Deee you're right, but you also should remember most of DAWs need a lot of space, they cost a lot and the installation process is a pain in the arse.

  • Posted by Deee (183.89.24.x) on April 9 2020, 2:38pm in 5152:
    Even if that made any sense, still the musician would like to ear others music with their own ears the filtered songs, because Manny chateristics of the music can't be described accuratly at all, right?

  • Posted by Abhi (182.68.247.x) on April 9 2020, 1:19pm in 5152:
    @Deee maybe, we (REAPER users) listen to the other music (use other DAWs) and suggest Justin only good music (good features from other DAWs) so that Justin himself don't have to waste time into listening to nonsense music (other DAWs) XD Just my stupid opinion :P maybe that's the reason why so far, REAPER is only the DAW which have most features available? It's just they are hidden. Take Lyrics.lua, very good feature for songwriters, but is it hidden deep inside action list. And many people don't know it.

    They don't have pitches. They are used for giving your music a flow, a speed. I asked only pitched instruments. Just like bass is mainly for low frequency. I thought maybe there is an instrument mainly for high frequency?

    Woah! Cool. You are also into astronomy & stargazing things? Let's go somewhere where no light pollution and clear night sky with lots of stars & galaxies, waiting for us to discover them ;)

  • Posted by Justin on April 6 2020, 5:15pm in 5148:
    We used to stargaze as kids in Sedona, it was pretty dark there too (and the modest altitude helped I think too). I think we had a telescope but it wasn't anything fancy.

    Maybe, Natural Bridges National Monument, US? Or Death Valley? By Googling, they seems like a nice place for stargazing from telescope and obviously, much less pollution ;)

    That was fast. I tried it, its great. Also the usability is now way better. Thank you!

    @wasereb4 you can blame me for this, sorry :P

    JamTaba 2 is able to sync (handy for practicing specific sections of songs w/ backing tracks,) and has far less drift than reaNINJAM. Maybe the appropriate code could be merged (it's open source.)

    Stillwell's plugs look very dated to me. No one wants that bad-photoshop pseudo-hardware look anymore.

    oops,sorry not bass but guitar! it's a basic sampled creation tool> very cpu friendly

    >suggest go check out grain sample manipulator- it's a really decent tool ... or reason's id8 creator's tool- it's like a general midi device which has simplified drums,synth,bass,strings,pianos-=really excellent tool for starters and more advanced users alike...(youtu.be/QKb_JrXx_KU

    That would be great :-) Could it take the time to start the playback into account? (Pre-fill the buffers)? These days there is a lot going on on NINJAM.

    Ahhhh, okay. I am customizing REAPER for few past days according to my own liking. Customizing everything, from shortcuts to layouts to toolbars etc. And suppose in future if I want to reinstall a fresh copy of Windows, I just don't want to lose any of my customisation :( okay, i test it now

  • Posted by Abhi (117.234.162.x) on March 31 2020, 4:35am in 5123:
    Yeah! You have unlimited supply of food, water & oxygen. Won't you go to another galaxy just to explore it? Travel instant? Okay, you have unlimited speed also, or like 100 times of light's speed.

    ahhh- ok here's how it works out... the total binary file size in mb (windows) for the complete plugin package comes in about: 133.174mb (harldy bloat,and some are already in reaper as jsfx!) but the real killer is the actual cost of ALL plugins there..totalling a whopping $916 ! (for all commercial uses) combine that with a commercial reaper license which then totals.. $1,141 ! that's a lot of bread+butter right? >> figures ;) cheerz!!

    Justin, do you think, that making and using some GUI framework for all JS plugins and a DAW's windows, will make it more CPU and RAM demanding? I'm not talking about creative GUIs, just a single raster canvas + drawing generic shapes. I made gain plugin with GUI similar to Volume adjustment JSFX in both JUCE and IPlug2 for experiment and it has same CPU usage.

    Not everyone needs bloated with stuff DAW and if you ask me, i'll be glad to pay more for some useful major REAPER improvements, but for synths? No, thanks :)

    @2020. DAW is not an instrument, it's not neccesarily need to have it, other DAWs include a lot of stuff to justify their high price and make more money from you, it's ok, it's business, but it's not an obligation for a DAW to have it. There's more than enough of paid/free 3rd party instruments, why do you you need another one? And do you really think, it's good, if devs will spend time on developing/maintaining instruments instead of actually improving a DAW? :)

  • Posted by Abhi (182.68.97.x) on March 29 2020, 4:54pm in 5118:
    @2020 But even we can't make iTunes, Spotify ready songs with built-in DAW's virtual instruments, not even Logic Pro's, which is considered best when talking about stock sounds. They are very good just for uploading your music on YouTube, Soundcloud, Bandcamp etc. But not good for when you have to make music commercially, like under a label? Then you really require those expensive Native Instruments & others. But yeah still, Cockos can provide us basic 128-MIDI instruments (indirectly, a FR, sorry XD) FORUM
