Question: Why did you name JSFX the way you did? Was it influenced by javascript in anyway?

    It originally was from the "JesuSonic" guitar processor. Not related to JavaScript.

Question: Don't know if it is inappropriate to ask here but I haven't found any information about how to properly layer instruments (like 2 or more VSTi plugins) and play all of them with just one MIDI item. And also able to apply different different effects to each instrument. All other DAWs have this. And this is very very helpful for layering drums, instruments in electronic music. If it is possible, can you pass on this to Kenny sir so that he will make a video in this topic? Or maybe you can tell us here?

    You should ask on the forum, but in short: there are many ways, the easiest way is to route the MIDI from one track to two tracks, each with a VSTi+FX on it. But go to the forum or the tutorial videos...

Question: A movie released on 2011 - Contagion, is becoming popular now because of covid19. That movie is 2nd most popular watched movie currently. Same story. A virus is leaked from an Asian country (don't know if it's China or other, I didn't watch that movie yet). And people have flu like condition and in the end, around 25 million people get die worldwide. More like a drama movie, not horror (like zombie movies). Are you going to watch it? Or maybe you have already watched it?

Question: Is it a good choice to buy a hard copy of REAPER manual? It always get updates. If I buy it now, there won't be any new features in my physical copy. Whereas digital one always get updates. But reading a physical book is much better than digital one. I am so confused. I want to learn about REAPER as much as I can do. Unfortunately, can't compete you or Schwa XD

Question: have you ever tried any theme from reaper stash? if you did then which one you like. have you watched kenny and jon videos just to check how they are making videos? why not also give credit to jon and hire him and make his unofficial reaper blog into official one? after all, teamwork really gives better reward than doing the same thing all alone.

Question: There is one thing common in CEOs of top companies (like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg), the thing is they read books. How just reading any book can make you a better human? Why not watching videos of those things make you a better human? Do you read books in your free time? Okay, now REAPER related. Have you ever fully read REAPER manual (by Geoffrey, right?)? Be honest please.

    Reading is an interesting thing in that it presents your brain with the most abstract thing -- ideas -- via the simplest means available (language). If you believe we're turing machines and thus functions of our inputs, reading books would be a very pure form of input (compared to movies or music).

    I do read books but mostly fiction. At the moment I'm reading non-fiction, though, Scott Jurek's book. I have not read the REAPER user guide start to finish, but I've seen most of the pages :)

Question: Does it happen to you when you feel like you just want to stop everything what you are doing now, like developing REAPER (which is your primary thing, right?), and also stop listening to music and doing programming, which are related to it. And you feel like to do completely different thing, like painting for example? But then after some days, you come back to your primary things with all freshness? And feels like it is completely new thing to do? And you do it even with much more interest than before?

Question: Best book for learning everything about music production? Everything containing music theory (mainly for DAW music, not the classical orchestra type), and DAW related stuffs, like compressors, eqs, their buttons like attack, release, threshold and all. Also learning songwriting and lyricswriting? Is there any single book (1000 page, I don't mind) available which teach you all this? Or even multiple books? From where you learnt music?
