    Errr I would lean towards the word ginger, as it is a food and a type of person.

Question: ''v2.25 -JSFX: update many stock plug-ins to define their I/O''. Just wondering, as I use many JSFX from the Stash that dont have this update. Just a bit confused, whether it affects these older FX's performance. Thanks. [permalink]

    Ah, it's fine, just if you have a plug-in which only accesses 2 channels on a 64 channel track, REAPER will do a bit more work than necessary, but it isn't that much work. To be clear: there is no decrease in performance in that update, just a (potential) increase in performance for plug-ins that define their pin counts.

Question: Can we have detail about this flute described as "Flute (amazon $100 special)"? Nice Super8 performance BTW ! [permalink]

    Randomness really... what's with the obsession of software from 18+ years ago? :)

    I'd probably start by writing some JSFX in REAPER :) It's a lot of fun and not much fuss.

    Why did it have both in the beginning? Some systems did better with one vs the other... Why did it have both in the end? Feature latch.

    That's pretty fancy, a level of flare I wouldn't expect.. I dig it! but doing that in JSFX is actually a lot easier than doing it elsewhere... e.g. my bigger graphical JSFX projects like super8 and General Dynamics, to write in C++ would be a huge pain, whereas in JSFX they are nice 1100 and 500 line (respectively) scripts... without flare. I guess super8 has a slight bit...

    Looking at the code now, heh those plug-ins are huge, 8000+ lines each... Pretty pretty though :)

Question: Err, no I'm getting a traceback just by trying stuff like fnv.hash('Close',bits=64)... I'm just trying to generate hashes for my langpack from action name (when you add new ones), since last version of langpack template is 5.22... [permalink]

    Hmm, I dunno. I'll release a new template langpack.

Question: Is this python implementation of FNV alg (tinyurl.com/gutl4u5) good for creating langpack hashes? I'm throwing some simple things like "Close" at it but it doesn't work... [permalink]

    It probably needs a nul byte added to the end of the hashed data.
