Question: Is it a coincidence that ARA2 was recently developed or did you/Schwa prompt Celemony to do so? What's your opinion on ARA1 vs ARA2? [permalink]

    As far as I know ARA2 has been in development a long time. I'm out of the loop on ARA so I am not qualified to answer, but I imagine ARA2 would be extending ARA1...

Question: AIM will finally go offline today. How do you feel about that, xdeadbeef? [permalink]

    Such a wasted opportunity... but I never use it anymore so what can I say?

Question: I know this is crazy... but is it possible that in Reaper 6 we will see video recording capability? (recording video using your laptop build-in camera or the one that is connected to your computer) It would've been really handy for bloggers and tutorial type of guys. Though I understand that it might be to complex to implement. [permalink]

    Nope, though I'm eying some live capture capability so we can do live video processors.. at least as a hack.

Question: Are you into hardware synths, modular or otherwise? [permalink]

    Not really, I have a Nord which has a nice synth section though...

Question: what artist name you think is best for me? "ignored" or "the range"? : ) [permalink]

    I'd go with The Range...

Question: Q1) Will you make a new theme for REAPER 6 or continue the v5 theme? Q2) What if you get tired & stop developing REAPER? Will you open-source it? Will REAPER continue to develop after becoming open-source? [permalink]

    I can't say theme plans have been made, but every other major version of REAPER so far has had a new theme. Re: getting tired of REAPER, I wouldn't worry about that any time soon, and maybe by the time you would worry about it we'll have AI writing code for us? :)

Question: Please, discontinue the unlimited trial period, JF :/ many people actually won't buy REAPER just because of this. [permalink]

    There is no unlimited trial period! The trial period is 60 days, but we choose not to enforce it via copy protection because doing so would: not be a good use of development resources, not make the best product, result in additional support burden, prevent licensed users from using it in certain instances, encourage illegitimate users to use cracked versions (and thus making them less likely to buy a license eventually), and so on. Also, what's it to you?

Question: While the bubble is popping, why don't you buy some bitcoins and then sell it? :) [permalink]

    Waiting for the bubble to pop, only question is how high it will go! Crazy though. Totally crazy.

Question: Has your opinion of functional programmed changed since the last time someone asked about it? What style/paradigm/philosophy influences Reaper the most? [permalink]

    I dunno, it's not something I think about much.

Question: Have you listened to Steven Wilson? If you haven't, check Hand.Cannot.Erase, it's a fantastic album [permalink]

    Thanks! Bands I've listened to recently, randomly off the top of my head in no particular order: Mogwai, Radiohead, Gabor Szabo, Can, Menomena, Papier Tigre, Portishead, Deerhoof, Built to Spill, Portugal The Man...

    Inspiration -- playing with other people can be fantastic, just played with two friends today and had plenty of songs to improve sing on the bike ride home.

Question: Tell the truth, my consistent "inappropriate" ARA questions made you finally cave in? Either way, thank you, thank you, thank you! [permalink]

    No, I was resolved, schwa is the one finishing it ;)

Question: Hi Justin, I'm sorry I don't want to bother you with nodal stuff again but could you give API function for that at least? It's really needed. Thank you for your time [permalink]

    Forums, man.

Question: When swapping FX order via chunk, FXGUID's are not reordered, see https://goo.gl/aouFHN. Background: Trying to fix https://goo.gl/pUoG6i. Wondering, is this intended behaviour and SWS should work around it (manually swapping FXGUID's afterwards?) or a bug which could be fixed in R. ? [permalink]

    email me or PM me on the forum, better place to discuss than here. Just took a look -- it's because SnM/SnM_ChunkParserPatcher.h RemoveAllIds() removes the FXID lines, duh.

Question: I just discovered this GPL/Multi-OS Sampler (and his intriguing HLAC audio encoding) and wanted to let you know: https://github.com/christophhart/HISE/ [permalink]

    Nifty, I'll assume you're asking me if I've tried it -- I haven't.

    There's no advantage to making it public that I can see.

Question: do you have some kind of data or can you estimate how many people use reaper? [permalink]

    Yes, roughly, but we keep that information private.
