Question: hey jf- how do you actually feel about "secrets"? or "whistleblower reports" + how might (youtu.be/ZSj7QsHRxHQ news report affect your good self? thanx.. ::we see this as IMPORTANT news::

    I think the government has too many secrets for sure, but then there are some that probably shouldn't be released ... e.g. things that are just embarrassing but without any public benefit. Snowden giving a trove to the Guardian who then was very selective on what was important to release was a good model IMO. Releasing cables of diplomats discussing things seems less helpful and more destructive. Anyway...
Question: Which curse do you choose? Every time someone purchase REAPER you sneeze (small sneeze for the discout and a normal sneeze for the comercial) or at every REAPER version release you have to post a video dancing (5sec for dev versions, 15 sec for normal versions, 5min for a big release (like v7) ???

    I'd probably go the dancing route, though the 5 minutes for big release would be a bit much that's only every so many years...
Question: hey jf- interested in what formats come off yr camera foe web videos...which format options + settings would you normally encode videos for (eg: youtube) uploads? ((including adding audio >on a windows os)) ta.

    usually high bit rate simple profile h264, then I process/reencode to h264 with reaper, targeting around 8mbps video and 320kbps audio...

    hmm mornings are nice. also evenings. middle of the day these days = too bright, sunscreen time.
Question: What are the odds that Reaper will be able to use the native Wayland GDK backend in the future? I've been really enjoying using Reaper on swaywm with my Framework laptop but since the built-in monitor is a 3:2 HiDPI resolution, I have to use fractional scaling to make it usable and that makes XWayland apps noticeably blurry. It's not too bad, but I would love a crisper UI!

    Hard to say, plug-in compat in this case would be a nightmare.

    It depends! Over-designing and overfitting is a problem, as are lack of encapsulation and poorly-defined interdependencies.
Question: Does Realimit alter ("touch") the audio in any way if the audio is below the threshold and brick-wall limit? My guess an hope is that it's not. So far I'm liking more than my Ozone limiter, and that's saying a lot!

Question: Do you see the need for a 24-bit bitmap that would serve for dialog painting only? Right now virtual painter is less than efficient in memory footprint for a typical 1280x1024px. Unless you have an interesting suggestion...

    We are very influenced by feedback but we do things based on our judgment, there are lots of other design considerations! I don't think there needs to be a flow diagram, also I think many features would never get to a "closed" state, instead they stay in a limbo of "some day perhaps."
Question: hey jf- ~IF you was to be recording @ 48khz wavpack formats..might you choose floating point over integer on the track recording settings ?? (+why,or not so please?) ta,.
Asked by 2023 (86.136.229.x) on May 23 2023, 4:38pm
Reply on May 23 2023, 9:23pm:
    if you're recording an input that can't go over +0dB, I'd record integer because it will likely compress better... and you can figure out what your noise floor realistically is, and only use that many bits (e.g. 19 or 20 bit is probably good enough)
Question: Hey Justin, are you more of an "implement something in a way that you know will have to be replaced, just to get things going" or a "think it through a bit more and try and get something decent from the start" kinda guy?

Reply on May 22 2023, 7:59pm:
    There are times when each has its benefits and drawbacks. If it's a self-contained module that is called from other places with a pretty solidified design pattern, then the former is good. If it's something more complex with a loosely defined interface, then it's good to experiment and contemplate until the design makes sense.
