Question: I want to use EEL2 as an FX processor but I am afraid... EEL was more approachable but that's history; the second iteration was okay too but at some point went way too much... A word or two might help? Am I going to need the dragon book too?

    It's pretty easy to use from other code, I think? NSEEL_VM_alloc() NSEEL_VM_regvar() NSEEL_code_compile() NSEEL_code_execute() NSEEL_code_free() NSEEL_VM_free() should be enough to get started.

    I'm using a 2014 rMBP now because of work requirements but I do really like my X1 with Linux (if I was on vacation where I wouldn't have to deal with any work, which never happens, I'd take the X1).

Question: Would it take more hours to mow the lawn in the backyard or port reaplugs to linux-VST3?
Asked by shorty (91.42.245.x) on September 20 2021, 6:46am
Reply on September 20 2021, 9:11pm:
    complicated by the fact their UIs use win32, which would require SWELL, but that would be iffy at best on other hosts? Anyway, not really the best use of our time!

Question: Would you consider adding a retrospective looping capability to Super8? That is, recording to a buffer and then the user has buttons that loop back the buffered 1/n of the measure? This approach to looping is used by beardyman to reduce friction and to avoid fussing around with deleting and re-recording loops when mistakes are made.
