Question: What is the triage process @ Cockos? Is there a roadmap? Am wondering if anything like the cool ethos vscode employ, where upvotes== implementation #ref: bit.ly/vscodeTransparentTriage

    We are very influenced by feedback but we do things based on our judgment, there are lots of other design considerations! I don't think there needs to be a flow diagram, also I think many features would never get to a "closed" state, instead they stay in a limbo of "some day perhaps."
Question: hey jf- ~IF you was to be recording @ 48khz wavpack formats..might you choose floating point over integer on the track recording settings ?? (+why,or not so please?) ta,.

    if you're recording an input that can't go over +0dB, I'd record integer because it will likely compress better... and you can figure out what your noise floor realistically is, and only use that many bits (e.g. 19 or 20 bit is probably good enough)
Question: Hey Justin, are you more of an "implement something in a way that you know will have to be replaced, just to get things going" or a "think it through a bit more and try and get something decent from the start" kinda guy?

    There are times when each has its benefits and drawbacks. If it's a self-contained module that is called from other places with a pretty solidified design pattern, then the former is good. If it's something more complex with a loosely defined interface, then it's good to experiment and contemplate until the design makes sense.
Question: Is jsfx online already a thing? Wondering if it could (or did!) Port and perform well in and with webdirt 🤔🙌🙏✌️

    I don't, but I'd say make something that scratches an itch that you have! (metaphorically)

Question: Hey justin! In VSTs under reaper we can use the hostcb(&effect,0xdeadbeef,0xdeadf00e,request,NULL,0.0) dance to get various REAPER-specific contexts. Is there something like that available for CLAP plugins? Thanks!

Question: Hey Justin, from your experience, what is the delta between developers who ship and those who don't? Unintuitively there'll be devs who are wildly talented who don't ship, and less-talented devs who ship. Perfectionism? Confidence?

Question: My son's really into coding. He has gone from "Scratch," as a toddler, through "Python", and is now developing things on Unity. He loves music too, and I suggested perhaps he try to write a basic CLAP for learning purposes. Would you encourage this, and do you have any advice or gotchas to look out for?

    It might be more fun to start with writing JSFX, as to not have to deal with all of the parts that are a pain.
Question: On Tony Hsieh: "“While surrounded by friends in the Bahamas post acquisition as a newly minted 32x millionaire, Tony felt a sense of melancholy. What’s next? What is happiness?
