Question: I don't know if you remember, but I told you like 2 years ago or so, that REAPER needs a dedicated limiter, maybe ReaLim. And you replied me "we have JS Master Limiter". And now, you guys actually developed a dedicated limiting tool :-P I just wanna ask, is ReaLimit better than JS Master Limit? What's the difference?

    Please don't make me choose between Mexican and Indian, I'll get sad. OK fine I'll choose Indian. Of course both of those countries are large and have a lot of variety within them, so I'm going to choose the version I used to get from Chandni on 29th street before it closed :(

Question: hey-do you ever check tucker carlson/fox news...or any news? where do you gather informations?

    Despite being named "News", TC and the vast majority of what's on Fox News is opinion and commentary, NOT "News". So no, I don't watch that, it's pretty low on information and high on opinion. The NYT, Washington Post, and propublica are all pretty decent sources (though they all sometimes err, as they are made of humans), and if you want commentary with supporting facts John Oliver's show on HBO is pretty good.

    We use VC2005 with ICC now for win32/win64 releases (though usually VC2013 for development purposes). We stopped using VC6 early this year.

Question: I have upgraded to Windows 11 stable version (launched yesterday). Now, REAPER looks better than before :-P (thanks to Microsoft, haha). Now will you switch from Win10 to Win11 for REAPER development? Because obviously a software dev have to use latest tools, no?

    No, if the reed-solomon error correction produces the same bitstream as was encoded, then there can be no variation in the output (unless the error-correction logic causes other components in the CD player to behave differently, which would be a defect in the player, IMO).
