Question: Hello! Could you see some increase in REAPER license sales (even if it's small) during the Black Fridays every year, even though you never have any discounts?
Asked by MS_from_Sweden (82.100.127.x) on November 26 2023, 12:40am
Reply on November 26 2023, 1:12am (edited at November 26 2023, 1:13am):
    For 2021 and 2022, there appears to be a trend where the sales increase over the course of November. Black Friday itself isn't atypical, but looks higher than Thanksgiving (which tends to be a little low). This month not that trend doesn't seem to appear, from what I can tell (probably since 7.0 launched in October).

Question: I'm writing a synth in C using portaudio, I am generating sounds via both mathematical functions and hardcoded waveforms, it is great fun! However I get a lot of clicks and pops while playing it (I have midi support), any tips to remedy that?
Asked by Anastasis (94.67.83.x) on November 23 2023, 3:26pm
Reply on November 24 2023, 8:17pm:
    Is it in the generated output or is it due to audio device underruns? If the latter, make sure nothing you're doing spends too much time -- if you're generating 10ms of audio, you shouldn't go above 10ms of CPU time (or ideally, nowhere near 10ms of CPU time). And if you have to take a lock, make sure no other thread holds that lock for very long.

Question: congrats on 18 years of reaper (+ thanks). reaper still seems ahead of the pack, performance-wise - i'm curious if there are any architectural decisions you made back then that have held up over that time. (my guess would be anticipative rendering which still seems unique)
Asked by dan_remaincalm (119.18.0.x) on November 19 2023, 2:31am
Reply on November 19 2023, 3:41am:
    Using doubles for everything except time was great. For time, less great... Pretty much everything has evolved though, probably very little has remained. The biggest win I think is trying to keep the build process fast and easy.

Question: Hey Justin, have you ever heard of Chris from Airwindows? He releases new plugins basically every sunday and they are very interesting, maybe you could get something nice from his Galactic reverb, tapeDelay2, Clearcoat, and so on. They're all free(patreon supported) and so on, he also uses and encorages people to use Reaper. So yeah, hes an interesting mind for sure, you caould probably like some of his gadgets. e.g. youtube.com/watch?v=n6LIx52Wf_4

    Yeah, cool, though I rarely have time to bother with plug-ins, prefer to play with instruments... That reverb in the opening part of that video sounds a lot like Rrreeeaaa stretching things a ton heh

    Depends on how you define it, he does work on the theme and programming things related to that but doesn't work on the reaper executable etc. I look at us as being a 6 person team.

Question: why is it still experimental native dark mode(reaper) on mac os?

Reply on November 14 2023, 6:35pm:
    Yeah I guess it could be allowed... macOS does all sorts of weird different things in dark mode, but should be fine.
