    Hah yeah that's cool. Optimized the EEL2 (JSFX) code generation in the latest releases (and it now uses SSE on x86_64, which improves the Rosetta2 performance too).

    I go for maximum diversity... a few aversions: most cheeses (get migraines from some), and hazelnuts (mild rashes), maybe something else I'm forgetting about
Question: Do you think Audacity crossed the line with their new privacy policy or is the public overreacting? its here if you haven't seen it archive.fo/d3LBR

Reply on July 4 2021, 11:54pm (edited at July 5 2021, 9:52pm):
    What's the line, anyway? I dunno. Sharing minidumps is the part that would bother me, you never know what personal information could end up in those? Edit: if it's just stack traces, fine... if it's a partial memory dump that's a line crossed, for me. That Audacity backlash feels like an overreaction to me.
Question: Have you ever thought of getting an ecolabel for Reaper? Not as bragging, but to remind the competition that low cpu usage and generally good software with tight code can be a factor in terms of CO2 Emissions.

    writing JSFX is probably the most fun
Question: Strings VS. Pads. Which do you prefer?
Asked by Bongo (182.68.224.x) on June 23 2021, 2:40pm
Reply on June 24 2021, 6:55pm:
    I'm guilty of not using either, but if I had to pick one, probably pads (unless I had a bunch of string musician friends)
Question: Have you ever considered writing an operating system? It would be a massive project, expensive in both time and money. And history suggests that you’d ultimately fail. But I fall asleep every night fantasying about an OS that behaves just like Reaper.

    I've thought about making a swell-generic-sdl target which could run on linux without GDK/X11/Wayland/etc...
