    Haven't had that, but sorry that sucks, best thing to do is ignore and wait for them to lose interest, probably.

Question: gday- so who comes up with your song titles and how do you go about getting initial ideas for your songs/tracks?

    Song titles -- we mostly pick them at random when its a band (I maybe do 75% of them but sometimes the others do)... initial ideas, usually just wandering to find them

Question: I'd like to implement a better interpolation algorithm than cubic for SuperCollider's PlayBuf UGen (see doc.sccode.org/Classes/PlayBuf.html. I know C++ a bit but not much interpolation algorithm. What algorithm for this kind of real time sampler would you recommend with today's processing power ?

    For static rate changes (e.g. no pitch bends), r8brain-free is awesome. Otherwise sinc interpolation, with some AA filtering...

Question: hey- do you ever check out other users (giving optimising advices etc) jsfx codes and does any inspire you in any way? (user 'saike' as an eg:)

    saike's jsfx are amazing. as are JoepVanlier's, and Geraint's, off the top of my head (there are others too!). Totally love seeing people make cool stuff with JSFX. Only occasionally do I give them feedback, when I do it's due to changes in eel2 that affect them.

Question: Did you see the announcement about the winamp relaunch? bleepingcomputer.com/news/software...
Asked by Will (172.58.111.x) on November 19 2021, 4:50pm
Reply on November 20 2021, 1:19am:
    Yeah. I regret not buying Winamp back when I had the chance; it wouldn't have been expensive and it was out of a sort of selfishness not doing it (not feeling like dealing with the stress of it). While the new owners appear to have the best intentions, sadly at this point it's pretty obvious that they don't have the right skills/process to do it right. IMO they're looking at it from a top-down perspective, rather than bottom-up. I'd love for them to prove me wrong. :/

Question: You suggested for an old laptop to install Debian. I checked it. And also Lubuntu (lightweight flavour of Ubuntu). Lubuntu actually works faster & smoother than Debian (& other Linuxes as well). Why don't you try it yourself someday? Maybe you will like it more?

    Using mainline debian is more pleasing. Also it has RT kernels available (last I checked ubuntu only has LL kernels)

Question: Hey Justin. I have a well planned idea on a website were musicians could go to and upload their dry tracks and mix their music by themselves and not by an algorithm. My second idea is a more advanced community of musicans connecting to form bands but in a very different way. There are millions that would join this type of site. I'm a musician and creator of youtube.com/ExclusiveLM where I do many types of instrumentals. Can you and I connect to brainstorm my ideas that would not need a large overhead ?

Question: I have a laptop with 4GB RAM with Windows 10 64bit. I downgraded it to Windows 7 64bit. It becomes MUCH faster & smooth. I am very happy. But I wonder what if I install Windows 7 32bit instead? I don't have any plan to upgrade RAM on it. Will 32bit be smoother than 64bit in a 4 GB RAM laptop? I have heard that 64bit softwares takes double the RAM of 32bit softwares.

    I don't think 32-bit will get you much over 64-bit. 32-bit was a nightmare of running out of address space, I think?
