    Oh man they're all so good, don't make me choose. :) If Kid A + Amnesiac were a double-album maybe I'd pick that. But also The Bends is just fantastic. And OK Computer. And In Rainbows.

Question: How difficult would it be to add some kind of API-support via a cpp-extension for JSFX/VideoProcessor? Would this be feasible in any way?
Asked by Mespotine (185.224.57.x) on April 25 2022, 10:14am
Reply on April 25 2022, 6:10pm:
    It might not be that difficult but the nice thing about jsfx and video processors now is that they just work, and it'd also lock us in more. I do want to add GPU support for video processors at some point. Been preparing for that...

Question: Would you be interested in providing some wisdom re: audio playback / encoding / DSP? I'm working on a machine learning based encoding system with a friend to potentially replace MP3s etc and even though I think we are onto something, give a listen to soundcloud.com/lorin-725628480/aum...which is about 2 weeks of progress - contact details in the track description

Question: I have c++ extension in progress such as an interactive envelope based de-esser that mark possibe bad sibilants sounds on items.And some more productions tools that draws elements on arrange window. But on windows build appear hard flickering. After reading some cockos forusm threads, I realized that this cannot be fixed in a regular way. I understand that not quite legal but. Can I find arrange lice bitmap/bitmaps variables and draw directly to it? Or it so hacky/tricky/dangerous way?

Question: Can I use multiple functions for my variable? Like say string.length (for calculating length of your string). Can I use string.length.square.factorial() (I know it looks funny, haha), imagine I want factorial of square of length of my string? Are these types of multiple functions thing possible in programming languages? Because I am already doing this in Python, like string.length, but not sure about multiple things

    I haven't been to enough places to answer this with any kind of confidence! Also the location within the country would probably be as important as the country to begin with. So, with such little data available, I'll answer based on the food I've had in the style of the country or whatnot, because I like eating and that's more interesting than "I have no idea":
    • Africa: I mean who doesn't like injera and greens and spiciness? I'll go Ethiopia
    • Europe: mmm tough choices here, I'll go the UK assuming I can end up in Cornwall and have pasties there to my heart's content.
    • Asia: India or Pakistan. Naan roti saag and kofta mmmm
    • South America: hmm whose empanadas do I like best? I dunno. I'll go with Argentina (also I hear they have good meat). Sorry for my ignorance here!
    • North America: Mexico.
    • Oceania: I really like this NZ-based coffeehouse I've been into in London (Allpress), so I'll go NZ.
    Sorry these aren't well-reasoned answers, but/and now I'm hungry.
