Question: REAPER smooth scrolling in Windows? It seems like the "throttle mouse-events" option is only available on Mac. I have seen a lot of Windows users complaining about this feature. Will it ever be added? People are switching DAW for this which suck that they won't see the beauty of REAPER.

Question: Is it alright to use REAPER more than 60 days? I am really broke and I want to use REAPER to make money then use that money to buy a license? Is it alright or will you get mad? Should I just use Cakewalk?

    It is not exactly alright, it's a violation of our license terms. We won't have an emotional reaction to you violating the license terms (if we did we'd be upset a lot and that wouldn't be good for anybody!).

Question: reaper-vstplugins64.ini has two ID values for each VST3 plugin. The longer of the two IDs is the VST3 ClassID. What is the shorter one? For example, in the line `_TStereo_Delay.vst3=80EE243F8FDFD501,1997878177,#TStereo Delay (Tracktion)` how was 1997878177 calculated?

    I don't, but I did before, and the approval process was a bit of work but not really a headache. Having said that, it's a process that enables discrimination without accountability and that's pretty messed up :/

Question: Why music production (including mixing & mastering) is so hectic thing? Lots of things you should do before producing quality music. Why still there are no AIs, which can do most of your job, except the composition & songwriting, which obviously a human do. Other than that, there should be an AI tool or something, which magically can make your muddy & ugly sounding music into beautiful & professional sounding song. What do you think so?

Question: Imagine open source CLAP sampler shared via reapack and support REAPER API. So anyone is free to add new features. Would you or Schwa mind to add super simple basic template? I imagine that potentially would move many workflows to another level.

    Hard to say exactly, don't really track it. Some weeks more than others. Definitely work more in the winter. Also if I'm recording stuff (testing) does that count? ;)

Question: A couple questions in one. You used to advertise Windows XP compatibility (according to archive.org, that seemed to have changed in December). Do you test new builds of REAPER against older OS's like XP and macOS 10.5? How are you incorporating new OS features into REAPER whilst still maintaining compatibility with older OS's?
Asked by dronenb (129.222.0.x) on August 20 2022, 3:28am
Reply on August 20 2022, 3:12pm:
    We still do list WinXP as a compatible OS. Whenever we use a newer API we load it dynamically and make sure that older systems still function (though obviously not supporting the new feature). So for example, if you run on WinXP you can't use the newer WMF media encoding/decoding support, but REAPER still runs.
