    I've only played it a few times, it seemed like fun but also a huge timesink ;) Apparently it is turing-complete so yeah it should be possible to build anything it, given enough space and time
Question: What are the maximums and minimums blocks that are returned by GetMediaItemTake_Peaks? I have observed that if peakrate == samplerate then peaks[i] == peaks[num_samples+i] == samples[i] (with 'samples' being the table with the values returned by a TakeAudioAccessor of a take with no envelopes and unchanged item volume). I hope it is ok me asking about this again here. Thank you!

    Email is better! the peakrate vs samplerate is used to help determine when to demarcate individual samples. But seriously send an email to me (first name at company domain) :)

    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...
