Question: Previously, there was a Winamp app for android phones. Did you made it? If yes, then why did you discontinue it? And is there any link from where the android version can be downloaded?

    I didn't, that was long long after I stopped having anything to do with Winamp. Ask the new owners! :)

Question: As I want to make small game engine, I would like adding sound support from scratch using purely Windows API library. What your recomendation to use, DirectSound (but old), WASAPI (but pain to manage), or XAudio2 (seems unpopular than both former)?

    the classic WaveOut API is probbly good enough unless you need really low latency?
Question: So, you are into real instruments music, instead of electronic music, then why don't you at least use a VSTi for other lots of instruments. SampleTank, it's far cheaper than Komplete and mostly gives you tons of real-instruments (like lots of pianos, guitars, strings, drums etc. and they all are very high quality). Also, if you need a singing vsti, which can sing for you, then check out Yamaha Vocaloid, very great voices (free alternative is Alter Ego by Plogue, decent one)

Question: How does one set the slope in stretch-markers via API? SetTakeStretchMarkerSlope seems only to allow setting both ends of a slope at the same time, but both of them individually. Are we holding something wrong or is it a bug? XRaym and me destroy our brains over that one currently...

Question: Hello Mr. Frankel, This is not really a question but rather a brief message thanking you for your work. I use REAPER every day to record acoustic instruments and produce midi mockups; its routing power and stability, not to mention its many great functions (sub-projects, ...) have changed my daily life. I wish you (with a slight delay ...) a beautiful and happy year new full of projects, sporting and musical meetings. Thanks for creating this awesome tool! Yours truly, Charles (Arlequin)
