    I must confess it's hard to cold-watch youtube videos when I'm usually doing 3 other things at the same time

    Umm if you mean like prequels, I'd say release order I guess?

Question: how hard would it be to make a plugin that can real time tune polyphonic material ? is this something you would consider doing ? it would be useful for guitar on live performances / streaming where tuning might drift or intonation is a problem.. seems like a good challenge but i'm wondering how feasable is it ?
Asked by EcBaPr (119.18.3.x) on June 27 2020, 3:02am
Reply on June 27 2020, 11:23pm:
    That would be incredibly difficult. Realtime pitch shifting of monophonic material is tough!

Question: Do you know about Vocaloid? It is a VSTi singing plugin, in which you type lyrics and it sing back to you? It has lots of different high quality realistic sounding voices. Free alternative is Alter Ego, but this one doesn't have high quality voices.

Question: There's currently a discussion on KVR if 32 bit processing is actually sufficient/64 bit processing a merketing thing: kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p...WQhat's your take?

Reply on June 20 2020, 3:29am:
    Truncating to the 23 bit mantissa of 32-bit FP can result in rounding errors in real world scenarios, totally. Does it matter? Not usually. Could it matter? Sure. Does it cost much to preserve the extra precision in the intermediate states when mixing a project? No.

    I prefer it to the NYPD making their own autonomous zones here around their precinct. Both are illegal, sure, but at least the chop people live there?

Question: I get worried - Do you?=when watching all these satire/sarcastic talkshow/comedians/news/current affairs shows laughing with/at your boss . I worry Tr@mp will get back in-because ''we'' need something to take the piss out of-feels like distracting the sheep from the wolf like atm. I hope, I am wrong, while I have a laugh. Just the entertainment value, might distract from the idioticy. Sorry, I didn't really ask a question ;) Hope you are well, and thanks for the titles of the new release & webpage;)

Question: Do you imagine jsfx will ever be powerful as vst? (what exactly does it currently -lack- in terms of ability??)
Asked by 2020 (95.151.177.x) on June 16 2020, 8:50pm
Reply on June 16 2020, 9:57pm:
    It's turing complete, but can't create threads or network connections or a lot of other things, and the JSFX compiler doesn't produce as efficient of code as say, MSVC or clang. So, shrug?

Question: I'm comparing my renders from different Daws with same settings. When I make null test, phase difference between renders is around -70 db which is pretty low..I also can't hear any differences in my listening tests at different SPLs and on different systems. How can I make sure that other people also can't hear that,too? Is there a definiton for "inaudible by human ear" while comparing sound differences? Regards

Reply on June 16 2020, 9:57pm:
    Not sure, it probably depends a lot on what the -70dB is and what the signal is...

Question: I am a recent college graduate looking to get into the field of music technology. I have some experience with programming languages like JavaScript and Python, and am a musician. Would you have any advice on where to start? Thanks, David

Reply on June 13 2020, 12:18am:
    Hard to say (it's been a long, long time since I was just starting out). Writing stuff in REAPER using JSFX and/or ReaScript can be very satisfying, though!

Question: TWO QUESTIONS : 1. If you were never been a programmer, and hence, no REAPER software would be there, then in which DAW you would be making music today? (Sony ACID was your former DAW, right? But that is too out-dated now). 2. Do open source softwares run better in Linux than in Windows or Mac?

    Hard to say for #1, I don't use them now so how would I know? and for #2 I think it depends on the software!
