Question: Can I write you an e-mail?

    Sure, I think maybe you already did and I replied, though
Question: Hope your day is great. So, I made an app to play all the songs in our live set list using your web interface. ( in javascript ) It works a treat. That said , reaper sends out the relevant midi info to another PC using software called Gig Performer ? Have you ever heard of this program ? It is equally brilliant just like reaper !

    Nice... I haven't heard of Gig Performer, no, will google it
Question: Okay, as you know that Windows 11 is going to release with a new MS Store. And they are done with UWP metro apps and just keep the normal .exe softwares. Will you add REAPER into their store? It will make REAPER even more popular than before because then lots of people will search for DAWs in their store. Right now, only FL Studio is there but their mobile version, not desktop. So yup, if you do this, REAPER would be the first major DAW to come there.

    We're not really interested in putting REAPER on stores, it's better for us and our users to just be a separate download.
Question: Ah its okay for the deleted song. I really love it, I hope you like it too (unless you deleted it even without listening XD). Anyway, SCALE FINDER IN REAPER is so helpful and time saver. In my previous DAW, after making song (mostly MIDIs), I had to manually figure out the scale of my song and it took me too much time. But not anymore, thanks to you! Just keep bringing more little cool tools like this which saves our precious time in making music. (Now don't delete this post because of no question XD)

    Thanks, but rather than "now don't delete this point" maybe just add a question? silly :/ I'll delete it later.

Question: Why is the playback head lagging (not smooth, even a little blinking) in R. especially in the midi editor ? Strange for a DAW that is so powerful.. I've missed something for sure :) Looking forward to reading you Justin ! Best,

Question: if software requires .net in order to install, does this imply it may be more bloated or not run as efficiently as software that doesnt require it ?
Asked by EcBaPr (119.18.1.x) on June 1 2021, 1:03pm
Reply on June 2 2021, 7:15pm:
    It's definitely not the most efficient nor least bloated way to make something, but it doesn't necessarily mean much (it's definitely possible to do worse without .net)! There can be lots of factors and specifics to consider

    Hmm good question.

    As far as the program itself goes I was pretty happy with it, and while I could probably judge the code very harshly now, having an extra couple of decades of experience, it definitely did enough things right to be useful.

    Relating to the personal and business side of it -- there are a number of relatively minor things, the details which are likely not worth mentioning, that I do sometimes wish I had done differently. When I was 20 I definitely didn't know how much I didn't know. Now I at least know the lower bound...
