Question: It looks like linking with wsock32 and just including jnetlib in the build for an executable is possible to trigger false positive for a virus even if the code is never called. False positives have been a huge problem... currently thinking for a late release model if that is going to help the situation a little bit. Any other thoughts? Thanks

    Dunno, false positives are always possible. Best to report them early and often and hope that the developers of the antivirus software fix their heuristic...

Question: Long time fan, first time caller. Do you happen to remember SongMeanings? We announced our beta on the Winamp forums in March 2001 or so. Wondering if we were ever on Nullsoft's radar. We had a minibrowser plugin! Such fond memories of the Winamp days. Hope all is well.

    I haven't heard of any yet really but we'll see. Normally new Windows versions just work. MS is exceptional about backwards compatibility.
Question: I asked ChatGPT an easy thing, but it failed to do it properly. I asked it to ask me perfect fifth above any music note, then I answer it, and it have to tell me whether it is correct or not. So, when it ask me, and when I answer it, it rather give perfect fifth above my answer note, instead of telling me whether my answer note is correct perfect fifth above question note or not, LOL

Question: How does REAPER implement normalization to LUFs?
Asked by Alison (173.68.72.x) on February 10 2023, 4:51am
Reply on February 10 2023, 5:17pm:
    By doing a superset of the LUFS analysis -- in LUFS normally you throw away certain statistical bins, but we keep them around so we can predict how gain changes will affect the LUFS measurement, so that we know how much gain to apply. There's a lot more detail to it obviously but it is noteworthy that LUFS normalizing isn't as simple as "calculate LUFS, apply gain"

    Not sure, but hyperthreading generally isn't great for realtime audio so probably good to turn it off! Other than that you should be plenty of power, no?
