Question: Some movie / game / book recommendation ?
Asked by Daniel Lumertz (189.112.49.x) on April 5 2021, 11:06pm
Reply on April 8 2021, 1:18am:
    The books that I read recently that have stuck with me as being really awesome are by Tamsyn Muir: "Gideon the Ninth" and "Harrow the Ninth." Also NK Jemisin's Broken Earth trilogy, Iain M Banks Culture series, anything by Vonnegut or Philip K Dick... movie (that I like, but the first one that came to mind): Children of Men. Games: Resident Evil 5, the mercenaries mode especially, though I've given up on games since these days I just get motion sickness.

Question: hi Justin.. I am using OSCii bot with BehringerX32. I need to send an OSC address which has both string and integer in the same address.. X32 is expecting "/subscribe ,si /ch/01/mix/on 50" the 50 is the integer to request update frequency for the string.. is there anyway to send both string and integer from a single "oscsend" command in OSCii ?
Asked by EcBaPr (119.18.3.x) on April 5 2021, 10:42am
Reply on April 5 2021, 11:00am:
    I think you want something like something like: oscsend(device,"si/subscribe","/ch/01/mix/on",50);

    (the "si" prefix tells it a string and an integer will be the values)

Question: In an interview Brian Eno talked about a loop relation there is between technology creators and artists . In very few words: A artists use some technology in a way it was not design to, and then some technology maker redo the tool, and then a artist use it for something it is not design to and so on… Do you see this happening in REAPER development ?
