Question: I am a complete rookie at coding but I would like to give it a try. I would like to make a basic music player that is more tailored to my needs. What language would you suggest I do this in and what sort it GUI compiler would you buy/download to do it with if you were a total coding rookie?

Question: Hi, is there any relationship between EEL2 and EEL (eelang.org/? If not, why is it called EEL2? :-)
Asked by Christof (193.170.101.x) on July 6 2020, 2:43pm
Reply on July 6 2020, 6:09pm:
    No relationship. It's called EEL2 because it is derived from an earlier "EEL" (part of AVS) which is not the one you linked to, so it is called EEL2 both because it is a sequel and also in order to disambiguate itself from the one you linked.

Question: Everybody says people should "Learn to code, Learn to code, Learn to code", but what is the real economic value in a lot of people learning to code? Realistically, a lot of people work in restaurants, factories, etc., so what is the real point?
Asked by Joey (73.91.212.x) on July 5 2020, 5:51pm
Reply on July 6 2020, 1:02am:
    As someone who never tells people to learn to code, I wouldn't know! What I will say is that imagining things you want to do, then building tools to let you do them, can be immensely satisfying. Maybe it's good for the people who learn and get skills which then they can use to make useful things for others? Really though, finding ways of being creative is good for people in general, economic benefit or not. "Learn to paint, learn to paint, learn to paint!" Whatever works.

Question: What do you think is the purpose of life?
Asked by Sylvester (172.116.159.x) on July 4 2020, 11:00pm
Reply on July 5 2020, 2:21am:
    The previous times this has been asked, as "meaning", I've said I don't know. When it comes to purpose, I also do not know. I have some ideas on how to best utilize life, but they are probably not the purpose.

Question: Any chance you could cobble together some of the ReaPlugs code to make a nice channel strip plugin? It'd be really handy sometimes.

Question: Is there any particular (tehnical) reason, that in Reaper on Windows, only floating plugin windows can be HiDPI compatible?
Asked by zabukowski (89.142.62.x) on July 3 2020, 12:01pm
Reply on July 3 2020, 4:10pm:
    By "HiDPI compatible" I assume you mean "hidpi compatibility mode", which is sort of the opposite (it disables hidpi for that plug-in). The reason there is that you can only enable that setting for a top-level window at the time of creation. We could theoretically destroy/re-create the chain if undocked to enable such a mode, but meh. Either update your plug-ins, or set REAPER to be hidpi unaware, IMO.

Question: heya!- how do you feel about post recording quantizing for drums/guitars or vocals?? /are you ever doing that type of post editing for yourself??

    I think if it's done artfully there's a lot of value, but just smashing it into a grid is often a shame.

Question: how hard would it be to make a plugin that can real time tune polyphonic material ? is this something you would consider doing ? it would be useful for guitar on live performances / streaming where tuning might drift or intonation is a problem.. seems like a good challenge but i'm wondering how feasable is it ?
Asked by EcBaPr (119.18.3.x) on June 27 2020, 3:02am
Reply on June 27 2020, 11:23pm:
    That would be incredibly difficult. Realtime pitch shifting of monophonic material is tough!

Question: Do you know about Vocaloid? It is a VSTi singing plugin, in which you type lyrics and it sing back to you? It has lots of different high quality realistic sounding voices. Free alternative is Alter Ego, but this one doesn't have high quality voices.
