    That sounds like the same old thing that always comes up, maybe? Anyway not really interested, I like sleep too much.

Question: what is the best brand of coffee?

    It's completely subjective and also depends on the harvest and roast etc... I've been making some George Howell beans at home for a long while (I get from the cafe down the road) and like them a lot. I used to like Blue Bottle's beans but the last time I got a bag of Giant Steps they were way, way too dark for my preference.

    I throw things at the computer until they stick ... I probably need more of a process as my songs are never well thought out

    On Windows that's the convention for having that letter underlined (meaning hitting that letter on a keyboard will open that item)

    I definitely feel different kinds of pollen, and shellfish doesn't agree with me (at least if I eat enough of it), but other than that not really. (but I haven't been tested).

Question: What will you use instead of ICC for compiling Reaper? It seams this compilator will be abandoned soon.
Asked by Vitali (148.81.197.x) on October 11 2020, 11:38am
Reply on October 11 2020, 6:28pm:
    Realistically we'll keep using it for a while, e.g. for win32 we've been using the sample compiler for more than 10 years...

Question: Hey what a nice surprise, how did you manage to build Reaper for arm64 so fast? Is it fully functional? What about 3rd party libraries?

Reply on October 10 2020, 9:06pm:
    I don't think JSFX is working right yet, but that's it (mprotect() might not be supported? some new entitlement? will sort out when I get some apple silicon hardware). We have linux arm64 working, though.

    If so probably pretty distantly! If you are related to a David Frankel who came to North America from Romania around 1900 then maybe.

Question: audio VS. visuals..... which matters the most? (ignoring the fact that you are a musician, because I don't want you to give a biased answer (as audio) :P another question... which is more bearable - poor audio or poor video?

Question: Would you anticipate any audio problems if software forced an ASIO driver to use a buffer of 960 samples ? A program i use forces this setting and many people report audio glitches which i thought may be related.. even though 960 is divisable it seems like a non standard interval to me.. could create compatibility problems with some drivers ?
Asked by EcBaPr (119.18.2.x) on October 6 2020, 2:48pm
Reply on October 8 2020, 9:42pm:
    If the driver is designed to accept it, then it would work. If not, then it would fail!

    It's hard to say, because the treatment decisions being made for him are pretty clearly being made by him and not doctors. So who the fuck knows (it doesn't seem like he should be out now, though!).

Question: could you explain the technical reasoning for why you dont allow multiple different audio interfaces in Reaper ? for example if you wanted to use a Focusrite or RME ASIO driver for main outputs and then WDM motherboard audio driver or second ASIO interface for additional outputs ?

    Dealing with synchronization issues between them would be less than ideal
