    ... As of v5.972, if there are no overlapping items, an extra blank lane is created anyway, so it's clear that items can be rearranged vertically. Also in v5.972, we improved the logic for how vertical space is used when many items overlap, which previously could result in extra unnecesary empty space in between items.

    When enabling FIPM for the first time, before v5.78, overlapping items would be arranged vertically in a somewhat random order. As of v5.78, earlier-recorded items are arranged above later-recorded items, which is more predictable, but we also made a change so that if no items were overlapping at all, every item would use all of the available vertical space. This may have been confusing to users who did not realize that in FIPM, media items can be resized vertically with the mouse. As of v5.972, if there a

    I would definitely stay with VS2013 for traditional development, later versions have introduced Universal CRT and is a pain for distribution. Having said that I use VS2012 and has problematic code generation in some cases, I think some of the issues stay in VS2013 too, like spilling SSE codes if you use combination of certain math functions even if you have disabled them (/arch:IA32). Workarounds can be to either detect those functions and disable optimization or just compile with O1 with all the downsides.

But FYI, there are "green" proof-of-HODL coins (POS lol, proof-of-stake) that don't use much electricity.

    Well, if you really need an array of pointers, you could create a separate WDL_PtrList into the WDL_TypedBuf. But it's probably cleaner to calculate the addresses on demand rather than using pointers...

  • Posted by Hannes (87.153.188.x) on February 10 2019, 9:57pm in 4526:
    If I got it right, WDL_Typedbuf is supposed to be one dimensional. Considering I'd implement by size = numChannels * framesize , how would I properly realize a TYPENAME** GetBuffer() to get a multichannel double pointer?

    I'm searching for that as well, but don't get it working. You may look into Udo Zoelzers DSP book for "constant Q /non constant Q peak filters" or try to use some DSP code for graphic equalizers from all over the web for cuts, which mostly uses non-constant Q filters.

    I haven't looked at the spec, but using more precision for CCs/notes shouldn't be a problem. The reason they are so small in MIDI 1.0 is that they were transmitted via a slow serial connection, which rarely happens anymore.

    I'm confused about 32bit resolution, isn't it will be excessive? i think it's pretty useless&harmful, if project has a lot of midi items/a lot of notes&CC, more RAM will be needed to contain (and probably slightly bigger cpu usage to process more data) compared to current MIDI version, while such precision is needed rarely, to me it's not needed at all:)

    The health provider still has to abide by the rules defined by the state (which can be amended as needed without legislation), and by their own moral code, either of which being probably enough to prevent this sort of situation from actually occurring, and if it did still occur, my bet is that the law prior to 2019 wouldn’t have stopped it either.

  • Posted by questioner (62.214.88.x) on January 28 2019, 4:38am in 4519:
    I would agree but I don't have much hope that this will be applied only strictly in cases where the life of the mother is in danger. The bill also is not written in that way: "a health care practitioner [...] may perform an abortion when [...] the abortion is necessary to protect the patient's life or health". So in the worst case the "health" of the mother (however this is defined) outweighs life of a 9 month old, which just isn't right imo.

  • Posted by Justin on January 27 2019, 6:14pm in 4519:
    I think the biggest issue is that if it ever comes down to life of the fetus vs life of the mother, that the mother can choose her own life. The problem with trying to regulate how that is done is that it's hard to anticipate how that would occur and to define things correctly. I don't think anybody is advocating for 9th month abortions on whims.

    Thanks for the reassuring answer Justin! I honestly love your recordings. I find them soothing and the improvised and live feel is very refreshing when compared to most new music I hear. I’ve installed the experimental build on LM and it runs smoothly so far. Linux is really great in its ability to run old discontinued audio interfaces that would otherwise be useless. Btw would plugins written in the JS language work natively in Linux? (Like the Sonic Anomaly JSFX Plugins for ex)

Unless you are going to be making 100k+/y good luck finding housing. My recommendation would be to have the company fly you out for a couple of days. Go around and get a feel for the area (and the traffic). Look up housing on PadMapper/Zillow/etc and see what falls into your budget. It's nice if you want to change jobs in a year or two.

    That's the trick, You don't have to constantely check for major file changes, you set a timer that listens for the "date modified" events/changes in files every second or something, then update the file only when a change happens. I don't really know what is logic's approach for updating files. but I'm already writing a script for renoise in Lua that does exacxtly that. forum.renoise.com/index.php/topic/...

    Yes, JSFX port would be excellent, then we can do as we please with it.

  • Posted by Justin on December 19 2018, 8:21pm in 4478:
    I think part of the issue is that if you allow other applications to update the file, there's no guarantee they won't change the structure of the file, and to have to constantly check the file substantive changes would be a lot of overhead. EvilDragon is right here, though -- REAPER will by default set media offline when stopped and you switch away, to allow other programs to update the files. Then, when you return to REAPER, it sets the media back online, reparsing the file(s) as necessary.

    Yeah, that 0.0002 db (how did you find such a small number xd) definitely isn't at fault ahahaha. Specification says that in MJ mode LAME can decide to used L/R or M/S and that too much switching could cause artifacts. ReplayGain is something I even haven't considered. Thanks for considering this and fixing it

  • Posted by EvilDragon (141.138.35.x) on December 18 2018, 7:01am in 4478:
    But Reaper CAN edit files in external editors just fine... It does have an option. Preferences->Editing Behavior->[x] Set media items offline when application is not active.

  • Posted by Justin on December 17 2018, 10:12pm in 4486:
    Of all of the above factors, or joint stereo, my money is on ReplayGain tagging being the difference.

  • Posted by Justin on December 17 2018, 9:57pm in 4486:
    The other factor to note is that we don't clip the input to LAME -- so you should put a brickwall limiter in front of it if you want it to be bit-for-bit identical to what rendering to 16-bit then encoding would be.

  • Posted by Justin on December 17 2018, 9:41pm in 4486:
    OK I've done extensive testing, and there was a bug in REAPER's mp3 encoding which would cause it to make output which was attenuated by 0.0002dB. I don't think that could be noticed. Anyway, fixing that, now it produces the exact same results as the command line LAME (except for a missing ReplayGain tag, which could also make a difference on playback if the playing device uses ReplayGain).

  • Posted by Justin on December 17 2018, 8:56pm in 4486:
    Hmm, lame command line always uses j-stereo too (even on Extreme, or 320kbps CBR). Doing some testing to see if there's some other difference.

    Or maybe my mixes are just not that optimized...I have no idea if such things can influence mp3 conversion or not, just blindly guessing here, lol

  • Posted by John (93.138.49.x) on December 17 2018, 6:06pm in 4486:
    Joint-stereo supposedly loses more information than stereo forced. I mostly render orchestral, highly dynamical with much stereo stuff happening and I can tell from first hand that mp3 renders in REAPER CAN sound much much worse than the original wav. So much that I can only presume joint-stereo mode is what messes it up. Might need more testing to confirm, but I can't think of anything else that could influence quality that much.

    CS50 online courses on edx platform should be a good starting point.

    Thanks for the answer. I must say that this approach is very nice. If it wasnt of this I would never have tried Reaper for a song and would not have decided to buy it. And I find that the community is much more giving than other similar forums.

    I think here i would fall into the feature request pit and I know this is not the place for it. But we and some of my friends are still tied to Logic because it does't lock file access, you can get a loop running in logic and then start editing the loop elements in SoundForge in a Dosbox running win 3.1. and that's the only reason I could never leave logic to reaper or simply any other DAW. it can simply be an option at least.

    So many fun things to play with. How does one keep his attention to a single problem for too long?

    Nothing memorable nor useful

    What kind of programs did you make in Qbasic?

    My personal favorites are “Sticky fingers” and “Let it bleed”. But their later albums like “Bridges to Babylon” or “A bigger band” are pretty nice too.

    No I was terrible with it

    Do you have any own old songs to show us? :)

    I still struggle with Lua, thank you Justin :)

    I think it's just a fun way to jump-start inspiration motors. I find that whenever you change the way of playing (or instrument), your approach changes and so does the flow!

    Not really, but I've been recording everything for 15 years at that rate, so why switch now?

  • Posted by John (93.136.76.x) on November 20 2018, 1:09pm in 4458:
    Do you have a specific reason to record at 48kHz and not 44.1kHz?

  • Posted by Justin on November 19 2018, 2:33pm in 4456:
    Snappy snap snap!

    I really love the magnetic effect when we attach Winamp EQ or Winamp Playlist to main Winamp window, it automatically get attached, like magnets, and can move here and there, TOGETHER! :D

    "Quote: "to figure out what you could do that would be useful"...this is the reason I feel best coders are self-thought. Schooling feels completely irrelevant in this area...which is awesome because I think humanity had enough of schooling institutions, they are like jails anyway...it's good to see new technologies are pushing us to think outside of the box in every area of our lives.

    I still remember that feeling when it took me like a month to actually start creating things and then one day you compile/run/whatever and THAT DIALOG is right there in front of you - little living and beautiful being - your own little program, alive and well, beating fast with enthusiasm wanting for you to use it, to play with it...oh the joy...

  • Posted by Justin on November 13 2018, 1:28am in 4451:
    These days I mostly just play with other people, sometimes at home I'll practice various skills but it's a rarity. About once a week I go "I should practice playing easy clarinet sheet music" too.. but it's hard to motivate, easier to get together with other people and jam :)

  • Posted by Justin on November 13 2018, 1:27am in 4451:
    Never as much as I should have to really get good, probably a 4-5 hours a week sort of thing.

    "Programming is a joy" - when the things one wants to program work out, otherwise maybe not always. :)

  • Posted by MS from Sweden (83.185.81.x) on November 12 2018, 11:03pm in 4451:
    How much did you practice back in the days?

  • Posted by Justin on November 12 2018, 9:37pm in 4450:
    Yeah, I always thought the hardest part of normal "traditional" programming was to figure out what you could do that would be useful.
