Question: Is alternate cardio/running (3 days/week) & weight/stregth/resistance training (3 days/week) with 1 day (Sunday) completely off, a good workout, to reduce a bit of calorie and to make you fit?

    Sounds good to me. I'm on a running and stretching every day schedule... today was the 57th day in a row (of 1 or more miles, though almost all of the days were 3 or more). And have some light bicycling and rowing and bodyweight strengthening happens at random intervals when I have to go somewhere or remember things I should be doing... :)

Question: I want to ask a quick question about REAPER. When I freeze track, my MIDI is hidden and it renders into audio. When I unfreeze it, it revert back to MIDI. Nice feature but are you sure my MIDI won't get lost with this? I mean what if suppose I freeze 10 tracks and their MIDI got hidden and converted into audio stems. When I want to make some modification and wanted my MIDIs back, I unfreeze but let say, MIDI of only 6 tracks got back and the remaining 4 MIDIs got lost/deleted? I am just worried for my MIDIs. I badly want to use this feature because of my potato laptop and it gives me extra CPU power but then my MIDI got hidden and my heart starts beating loudly. Also, what's difference between render & freeze? In render, MIDIs are shown and audio files are right below them, but in freeze, MIDIs are hidden and only audios are shown. Is it the only difference or something else?

    This is absolutely not the venue to discuss this, but if having things be hidden makes you uncomfortable, save backup projects...

Question: Hello. You are very good in developing softwares. You are adding lots of video editing features in REAPER. Why don't you try to make a separate full-fledged video editing software, if you have extra time & motivation?

Question: Hey, I would switch my VC to version 2005 since the IDE and compilation results are less bloated, and just enough as my needs. I think I could get used copy legally (not bootlegs or NFR copy ofc), and I currently just tried Community and older Express editions. But, what edition you use, VS 2005 Standard or Professional? (You unlikely use Express since it lacks of x64 oob and ext plugins)

Question: currently in Reaper when you lock something it prevents mouse and keyboard inputs but you can still make changes via OSC controllers.. is this the intended behaviour ? i would have expected locking a track means nothing could make changes to it..

Question: Maybe it would be better to call REAPER (x64) as REAPER and REAPER (32bit) as REAPER (x86)? And also C:/Program Files (x86)/REAPER (x86) for 32 bit... AND... C:/Program Files/REAPER for 64 bit ??? I know weird suggestion 😂

    Yeah, eventually, though you never know what you'll break doing that. Funny how at one time x64 was the minority thing, now it's 90%
