Question: Is there a way the purchaser and Cockos can collaborate together and release songs to sell. I'm wondering if people working with your program can make a good living. Do you monitor end users from time to time for good work and possible potential to sell? I'd love to hear your thoughts

Question: Why are you telling people to wear a mask this is a website ? see 100 doctors at the supreme court www.bitchute.com/video/BhrHFw6xhM5W/

Reply on October 24 2020, 12:46pm (edited at October 24 2020, 1:06pm):
    That's misinformation, and btw OANN is not a reliable news source! There is overwhelming statistical evidence that shows that mask wearing is inversely correlated with coronavirus transmission, and a very broad consensus among epidemiologists. Having a group of doctors who disagree doesn't mean much, you can find people to disagree with almost anything (See: flat earth society, etc). Also just because someone is a doctor doesn't mean that this is there area of expertise. I program computers but I shouldn't go around telling people the best way to solder chips on motherboards....

Question: The UK BBC has released a new version of the educational microcontroller board, micro::bit. It has LEDs and runs an ARM processor and has wireless IOT features. Will Reaper or ReaPlay ever run on it?
Asked by Superblonde.org (174.195.212.x) on October 23 2020, 1:38am
Reply on October 23 2020, 2:25am:
    It appears to use a ARM Cortex-M0 which seems to be a microcontroller and lacks a FPU, so probably not?

Question: I've been doing work on my sample manager and realized that instead of reinventing the wheel (and wasting cycles), maybe I could just use reapeaks files for file previews... there even is a spec explaining the format... good/bad idea? can I somehow just use reaper to generate em all in batch? Hopefully this doesn't count as a reaper question :P

Question: what is the best brand of coffee?

    It's completely subjective and also depends on the harvest and roast etc... I've been making some George Howell beans at home for a long while (I get from the cafe down the road) and like them a lot. I used to like Blue Bottle's beans but the last time I got a bag of Giant Steps they were way, way too dark for my preference.
