Question: WDL_IndexedPtrList: Did you forget to make members private or are by design public? Then you meant _DEBUG_ or _DEBUG? Thanks

    Yeah, there were common uses for accessing m_list directly when interfacing with legacy code. Thanks for spotting the _DEBUG_ typo!

Question: I was wondering if by any chance you would share the source from the reaper_cd.dll plugin extension? I could learn from it to use in the DDP marker editor to add a burning feature for DDP. Thanks, Wyatt

Question: Maybe a weird suggestion? In reaper.fm/videos.php, the video list is so long, especially the 3rd column (extreme right side). Is it possible to arrange them like we have in YouTube?

Question: Do you know the drum machine plugin - Sitala? It's awesome and works perfect in REAPER :D well, you can bundle this in your next v6 release, if you want. They are allowing developers to bundle it.

    Hmm if it were a fraction of the size, maybe... but really separate downloads make more sense IMO.

Question: Have you thought of uploading your REAPER projects so they could be sampled. Your stuff is a gold mine. You have a good clean organic sound but you refuse to add structure to your songs! I'm currently listening to "decanted youth 02" and it has so much potential but you wont even play with a metronome.

Question: Is it possible to make swell windows transparent on macOS? I have tried setAlphaValue:someNumber, setOpaque:NO, setBackgroundColor:[NSColor clearColor], but the windows only fade to opaque white.

    Might need to mod the NSWindow as opposed to the contentView?
