    Sounds pretty terrible to me

Question: I've been using Winamp for years, and just recently switched from ProTools to Reaper as my main DAW... and I found out yesterday that you created both! That being said, I mostly just wanted to say thanks for making great software, but I also have many questions... picking one for now that hopefully hasn't been asked a thousand times already: 1. What are some oops! entry was too long... 1. What are some coding projects you started and never finished, if any, for whatever reason? (lost interest in the idea, found an existing solution elsewhere, etc.) [permalink]

    Various things, nothing terribly interesting though. Mostly just give up out of laziness, where the benefit doesn't justify the work required...

Question: Sedona looks like an imaginary world. What's it like to grow up there? [permalink]

    Boring for normal childhood stuff, but awesome for the nature aspects. I wish I had appreciated them more at the time (though in retrospect I appreciate it now!)

    I did have a 2000 S4, yes, it was lovely. Now I don't have any cars though.

    I dunno, average around 40 probably but some weeks more, some less.

Question: Hello Justin, Would you like to work together on developing a built in drum sampler for reaper? I have already multi sampled a drum kit with multiple mics, velocities and round robins to use as the test material. [permalink]

    I said I wasn't good at managing. Do I want to be? Not really, I much enjoy other things (I do like to improve at other things! but not the ones you mention).

Question: How you like Win10? The sense of control and ownership is nonexistent. [permalink]

    Yeah it's pretty depressing. I installed it on an old laptop to test some live looper stuff, and it works well, except for when it decides to do a bunch of updating crap (interrupting the audio). And there's no way to know when to do it. The answer: keep the network disabled, ugh.

Question: Please, look at oscii-bot again or, even better, at celphor's fork, that supports SYSEX messages. His fork is crashing on Windows 7/10 64 bit (both 32 and 64 bit versions). SYSEX is crucial to send feedback from Reaper to my controller's LCD screen. Without this I won't be able to complete my midi2osc script. I've asked several guys to test if this error rep [permalink]

Question: If I want to make an effects box like a contemporary Jesusonic, should I learn how to program dedicated DSP chips like Blackfin, or will x86 work fine? [permalink]

Reply on November 14 2016, 3:13pm:
    Either way, DSPs are probably cheaper/use less power..but x86 has PLENTY of power :)

Question: Are you still using VC++ 6 for anything now in almost 2017? [permalink]

Reply on November 10 2016, 2:10pm:
    I actually prefer it as an IDE to the newer versions... but I don't use it much. We do our win32 builds using VC6/ICC10, which sort of counts.

Question: Have you heard any scoop about the status of winamp? Does winamp even matter anymore? [permalink]

Reply on November 8 2016, 1:37pm:
    Nope, haven't heard anything. Not sure it matters. One could probably re-create it in a reasonable amount of time, if they felt the desire.
