Question: Any thoughts on decentralized AI, cloud computing and streaming (i.e SingularityNET, Akash Network, Theta)? Future or fad?

    Not really? We'll see?
Question: How will affect REAPER binaries/plugins/VST a hypothetical C++ ABI break for Win/Linux/macOS (sooner or later it's coming)? In this kind of scenario does REAPER have an advantage for not using the std:: (Standard Template Debt) or will be a major disaster regardless?

    Hmm I don't see a C++ ABI break for existing architectures happening

Question: I am developing sws function for tcp/mcp key input(volume, pan, sends - with arrow keys or any). To draw focus rect on element and to get mouse position I made a simple "walter" parser for version but for reaper version 4 (that was couple years ago).But version 6 is more huge and comlicated now. Any chance to get walter parser open source?

Question: Stock presets of REAPER effects plugins are very great. Any plan to create more presets for every plugins (especially ReaComp, ReaEQ & ReaDelay)? Also from where you guys made those? By your own or learnt from somewhere?

    Most of them were made by various contributors on the forum.. We'll take more if prodded :)
Question: Do you plan on making any improvements to the Midi editor in Reaper again? I ask because I've owned the product for over a year and haven't seen a single feature or improvement made beside some bug fixes. There are so many requests for improvements on the forum that it doesn't seem useful to add anything new if none are being considered.

Question: OKAY, A SERIOUS SUGGESTION : you MUST definitely play Portal game series (if you didn't play them yet). They are puzzle games with a brilliant story and oh, you will adore cute robots there & their voices too ❤

    Love them, especially Stephen Merchant's voice acting. Lots of fun, too. Haven't played the new mod I heard about yet though.

Question: By reading lots of questions & answers here, I think suggested topics should be programming, music (except electronic 😂), sleep, coffee (and sometimes tea too), fitness, cycling, books, reaper-talks (except FR & BR 😄), and some movies/series. Any more things you want to include? 😛

Question: hey Justin. I'm just contributing fairly deep features to CSI, and wondered if you can expose the IReaperControlSurface::Run() frequency to Preferences? 30Hz is pretty low, both for fader update rates (eg. for surfaces that don't support fader interpolation, although I've just worked around that) as well as input accuracy/resolution.

Question: What's your Talent/Impractical Dreamer/Work Ethic/Vision/Stubbornness ratio? (0 to 10)

    It varies, but if I have to make them sum to 10 at this moment I'm feeling like a 2/0/3/2/3 (clarifying: stubbornness can be a negative thing, hanging on to things too long, but also a good thing, hanging on too long to figure out why something that isn't necessarily needed is what it is, etc).
