Question: No question, just thanks man. At this point I've spent hundreds of hours just making stuff in Reaper. I've been using it since just before version 1 and gotten so much creative satisfaction out of using it over the years. I gather that's why you made it too. Here's to the journey!

Question: Are you still supporting your boy Bernie Sanders after his recent health scare? Or, have you come to your senses that you should be supporting Andrew Yang instead?

Reply on October 6 2019, 5:13pm:
    Bernie is fine but not my first choice. To be clear I’ll vote for any democrat in the general. Yang is pretty low on my list, a lot of what he says is a bit nonsensical. His website’s explanation of VAT is a pretty good example of that.

    If it was about my own personal use I would probably pick Linux at this point, but for commercial options and for easy emulation I would choose Windows.

Question: is the null-soft and llama stuff a tribute to llama-soft or just a coincidence?
Asked by olilarkin (195.206.183.x) on October 4 2019, 9:41pm
Reply on October 5 2019, 2:36am:
    Coincidence, though I was a fan of llamasoft’s work too. Nullsoft was really a play on Microsoft. Llamas were not introduced until a random user emailed us with a Wesley Willis quote, if I remember correctly...

Question: To my prev question: Seems like /EHa option in VS helped me to catch it without crashing, but now i wonder, how do you handle such stuff on Linux/Mac, looks like i need to figure out, how g++ and clang does it, but maybe there is a better solution? :)
Asked by Pony (78.152.169.x) on September 30 2019, 2:18pm
Reply on September 30 2019, 2:36pm:
    We don't use C++ exceptions, and if it's an exception due to an access violation/etc, it's usually better to crash and get to the root of the problem.

Question: Sometimes, when i have saved GUID* of track somewhere => then i delete that track => GUID* now points to restricted area with unknown data => trying to get access it (e.g. for comparing or guidtostring func) crashes REAPER (acces violation), what do you do in such cases, how do you check is GUID is still valid without crashing?

    Don't save the GUID pointer, copy the value out instead.

Question: If only we knew if = U.S Presidents watch the film Wag the Dog on repeat before elections. Then we wouldn't feel like like watching Dr. Strange Love.. Do you get frustrated at the Stupidity/Cliché's of this current Political environment world wide? Or do you just drink coffee and run miles like me, with a self imposed blank consciousness;) But, actually deep down care about the future? ;)

    Cockos is definitely a big consumer of responsibility resources.

Reply on September 24 2019, 1:56am:
    Probably should ignore it, but if you support cockos extensions, you'll get this called immediately before a batch of setParameter() calls when loading state.

Question: Will the reaper end when the reaper employees die?

    REAPER will end at some point, but it's hard to say when. Definitely before the end of the universe.

    I do love animals (well, *some* animals)... I feel like I have too much responsibility as it is, maybe at some point that will change.
