Question: As I noticed, that today is Reaper devday 6025...did you celebrate the 6000th?

    every reaper devday is a celebration! ;)
Question: Are there some "interesting" sound processing algorithms used in Reaper, that do not use FFT? I mean, that directly process the PCM sample data. (An "uninteresting" example I could think of would be phase inversion, where you just have to multiply each sample by -1.)

Question: Where can I find some info about the Rrreeaaa algorithm? Did you implement using EEL2/JSFX? I love it, thanks.

    I should publish it, it's very simple (a couple hundred lines).. it's based on the algorithm in the JSFX spectral hold plug-in.

Question: hi Justin, I've already tried many options but I haven't found a solution to the problem, it's what. I work in the reaper, on the old laptop (lenovo t510 i7 620m 8GB nvidia nvs3100m). now I have Windows 7 and Debian installed on different ssd disks, currently I work with a movie sound, in reaper uploaded video for playback during mixing. And on debian this video is very bad played, while on windows 7 everything is just perfect. and the problem is not only in video, even when processing music, the same proje

Question: Have you thought of packaging Reaper Linux as an Ubuntu Snap and Fedora Flatpak? If not, perhaps you could explain a little why not? Thanks.

Question: What kind of warm-up you do before starting your day with coding for most of your day?
Asked by Abhi (122.177.10.x) on May 17 2022, 4:19pm
Reply on May 17 2022, 4:55pm:
    I don't think I code most of most days. But coffee and some things like the nyt spelling bee, framed.wtf, heardle.app, wordle, worldle, etc.
Question: Justin, can I somehow teach myself how to code (C++ ?) by examining the WDL code? I acquired so many books on programming but still do not get how to start making a music notation editor.
Asked by Pashkuli (84.9.31.x) on May 16 2022, 8:40pm
Reply on May 17 2022, 12:50am:
    That would be a very difficult way to learn, it would like learning Hungarian from a menu at a restaurant... A music notation editor is a very complex thing! It's probably better to start with smaller tasks.
Question: Thanks for the "Geeking out with" interview you gave us. I enjoyed a lot. You are an admirable person for sure.

Question: I'm learning front-end web dev and feels like it's always something new re-inventing the wheel a little bit. Any advice for sticking to a single stack or career path or in life in general? Feels like "I shouldn't marry this framework/stack because something else will come out".

Reply on May 14 2022, 9:01pm:
    Definitely good to learn overall skills in addition to the specifics of a particular API/framework (the latter you can look up, overall skills let you know what you're looking for or how to find it)

Question: It seems that your "small, cross-platform, open-source application which could fuck with the various crypto networks" has been successful. Congratz for having done that in secret! :D

    It was already crumbling (whether it continues or it gets revitalized for another 3 years who knows)
Question: I assume you're heavily invested in the market. Do big market moves like this past month bum you out or do you not think about it?

Question: I have 2 questions. One, do you use Reaper Linux on Ubuntu and Two, have you kept up with the latest developments with Pipewire/Jack that might replace Pulseaudio/Jack?
Asked by bringkeys (70.190.185.x) on May 8 2022, 11:56pm
Reply on May 9 2022, 1:23am:
    I use both Ubuntu and Debian yeah... Following pipewire a little but waiting a bit before supporting (I mostly use ALSA directly heh).
Question: Have you ever fiddled with the Radium music editor? If yes, what do you think about the (interface) concept of combining DAW and tracker?

Question: Are MiniZip64_Changes.txt:5:7 typos intentional? You can safely ignore the Q if it supposed to be something funny for native speakers - no need to explain.
Asked by Gio (94.70.26.x) on May 8 2022, 9:53am
Reply on May 8 2022, 12:49pm:
    Those came from the original zlib copy, our only additions are the WDL-related lines. I suppose we should remove that file and use MiniZip64_info.txt instead
