Question: Thanks for all your hard work. I'm working on a theme builder script. My skills in lua come from about 2 years of teaching myself. I know I can get it to something I will use but my aim is to make something other people will want to use. Do you have any tips. Like am I out of my league?

    I'm not sure what your goals are, but if you are then you're definitely not out of your league! It takes patience and persistence but you should be good, assuming your goals are within the realm of possible ;)

Question: I do not have a question I just wanted to thank you for your work in the PC audio space. I loved Winamp and love even more to hear that Reaper was developed by one of the same people. Thank you.

    While I loathe the idea of implementing yet another plugin format, the spec looks very reasonable...

Question: Do you know about CPU setter? whatroute.net/cpusetter.html#overviewWould it be possible to get Reaper more immune against other processed stealing attention by setting the Nice value of Reaper to for example -10 instead of 0? Or is this a bad idea or even the same as adjusting the thread priority in Reaper itself?

    REAPER already schedules its threads at higher priorities depending on the OS, so I dunno

    Recover the program? No, best you can do is create a dump file to have the developer debug it, probably.

    I liked Snow Crash, but I don't want to live in a dystopian hellhole. As far as DAWs go I think the screen + mouse/keyboard words pretty well.

Question: When Windows 8 was released with new UWP apps, were you shocked or scared that Microsoft might end Win32 softwares and focus on UWP apps and you thought that you have to re-make Windows version of REAPER as a UWP app? Fortunately, Windows 11 start focusing back to its old Win32 apps, but with modern twist (WinUI apps, I guess). And UWP apps are going to be dead soon.

    MS has always made a huge priority of preserving backwards-compatibility (unlike some other notable companies), so I didn't worry.

Question: What led to JSFX install no longer being optional? I didn't see any discussion about the change.
Asked by Erin (75.15.159.x) on December 10 2021, 5:54pm
Reply on December 10 2021, 8:33pm:
    People who had it mistakenly unchecked and wanted to know why the JSFX loudness meter wasn't there, etc. Contemplating bringing it back but making it always enabled by default, but other platforms don't have this option anyway...
