Question: Hello Mr. Frankel, I didn't seen that : user.cockos.com/~deadbeef/?article=138 I totally agree. I just wanted to know how do you prevent someone to patent and from frobiding you to freely continue a tool you made. I mean, is copyright a sufficient proof of anteriority ? At this stage I know absolutely nothing about software protection during its development phase and after its publication... I just want to avoid taking the wrong path :) Have de good day ! All the Best.

    I grew up mostly vegetarian. I've tried as an adult here and there, but never seem to feel great doing it, so I give up quickly.

Reply on January 19 2022, 9:55pm:
    I didn't, but my guess would be it's waiting for something that is slow like network latency?

Question: Mixed-Mode DPI Scaling only available in Win 10. Win8.1 doesn't allow you to have dpi aware window and unaware window together for a single process. So, reaper running on win8.1, how do you make the DAW dpi aware and plugin window dpi unaware(let the os scale plugin ui)?

Question: Hello Mr. Frankel ! Hope you're fine. Do you think learning C++ right now is a good thing, I mean :eas a half-time dev. if implementing license cloud or other system is complicated / unwelcome ? Best
Asked by Arlequin (212.224.226.x) on January 15 2022, 9:28pm
Reply on January 17 2022, 4:58pm:
    I don't have any experience with Rust, but I'd say C or C++ are both fine choices, though my use of C++ is also not terribly modern. C sure compiles a _lot_ faster though :). As far as monetizing, doing simple registration keys is preferable to users, and also reduces your support burden (if it requires infrastructure to function, then you're setting yourself up for headaches)

Question: Do you have/use a pencil sharpener ? If so is it electric or manual ?

    I have an electric sharpener but it doesn't get much use these days, and a manual one for the sketching and watercolor pencils which also doesn't get much use these days :/

Question: hello- so can you clarify why rex+rex2 files behave so differently in reaper? ie: not respecting spectral peak settings or default fade inout options? is this a limitation of the format? or...
Asked by 2022 (91.110.225.x) on January 10 2022, 12:46pm
Reply on January 10 2022, 4:27pm:
    They are a complex format, and we have to go through the official rex library to access them... so some of those differences are a result of our separate implementation of various things... shrug
