Question: Does REAPER import/export configuration has backup for everything I can do in REAPER? Like downloading custom icons for using in my custom toolbars, tweaking themes (like changing colors, icons etc.), all the things I tweak in preferences menu, all my layouts (like I have two custom toolbars, in upper side and in right side), all my custom actions etc.? Does it also backup external stuffs like themes, fonts which I download from stash? So, if I uninstall and reinstall REAPER, will I lose anything?

    The easiest way is to test this. Generally yes, though I'm sure there are exceptions.

Question: Any way to sync reaper playback to Ninjam? (e.g. for having a drum loop)?
Asked by David (84.169.98.x) on March 30 2020, 4:08pm
Reply on March 30 2020, 9:35pm:
    No but I suppose we could add a "start REAPER playback on next 1-beat" could be doable, but it would be approximate (not a perfect sync).

Question: What do you like better? Adding a new feature or fixing a bug in REAPER?
Asked by Abhi (122.161.218.x) on March 30 2020, 2:55pm
Reply on March 30 2020, 9:34pm:
    It depends. Adding a new feature that I really want to use and then using it is probably the most satisfying.

Question: Do you use custom toolbars and/or custom actions (macros) in REAPER? If yes, can you tell us what kind of custom toolbars and/or custom actions you use? :)

    Toolbars occasionally, I do have some custom actions that I use (and re-create if needed). The one I mostly use is (and map Cmd+1 or Ctrl+1 to): "go to start of time selection" / "remove contents of time selection". I find that pair very useful for editing long jams (removing a section, then eventually finding a new edit point, and setting the time selection end there before removing it again)

Question: Please help me. Sometimes Reaper forum really doesn't open here. It shows your IP has been banned, contact admin or something like. But for now, it is opening. And I have made an account in reaper forum yesterday. And tried to post yesterday, but it shows " you do not have permission to access this page". Still today. How can I post in forum then?

    No, there's no way currently, so make your config files private and obviously don't re-use the password anywhere else.

Question: Hey man! Thank you for making Reaper software. I really love the customization thing. Are you making more icons so that we can make more custom toolbars with lots of cool different varieties of icons?

    Life, and software development, is full of compromises. We try to keep the FX plug-ins small and lightweight and simple.

Question: Why movies are in 23.9 fps? Why not 24 fps? Or 30 fps (most common, I guess?) Or even 60 fps? Do you like to watch a movie in 60 fps?
Asked by Abhi (182.68.60.x) on March 28 2020, 6:59am
Reply on March 28 2020, 8:58pm:
    Film has traditionally been shot at 24fps. My understanding is that they set the framerate for films to 23.98fps because it makes converting to 29.97fps for NTSC easier. AFAICR, 29.97 exists because when they were adding color to NTSC (which was 30fps in black/white), they had to adjust the carrier frequency to avoid harmonics from the color signal from interfering. Fun fact: you can play 24fps content at 23.98 or 23.98fps content at 24 and it looks about the same! ;)

    You can post in the forums, but don't post links here. Scheduling means timing, roughly.

Question: A little bug here, or rather just a little mistake. When there is only one comment here, it still shows '1 comments' instead of '1 comment', haha, just a minor thing I know. Maybe, change your 'if' condition from "if 0, printf ("comment"), else printf("comments") to "if 0&&1, then comment, else comments". I know a little bit of programming :P

Question: It's directly not a REAPER feature request. But a great idea for both REAPER extensions and customers. There are lots and lots of extensions, like Playtime, SWS etc. And lots of users don't know about them. Can you make a tool within REAPER from where we can browse all these cool stuffs inside REAPER and download or buy whichever we like? Also, those developers can add their tools inside REAPER? So users don't have to search outside?

    There is ReaPack which is just that, but we really don't encourage people because honestly for most people the built-in stuff is enough, and the support burden of using third party code/scripts/etc is something.
