Question: Random question but you don't have to answer. What compiler do you use to compile Reaper with? And how can you target multiple operating systems and CPU architectures from a single code base and tool chain?

    different toolchains depending on platform -- VC2005/ICC10 for Windows, clang for macOS, gcc for Linux. A lot of the cross-platform-UI-ness comes from writing basic win32 code and using SWELL (part of WDL, open source etc) to target macOS/linux... and a lot of the audio/midi device code is platform-specific for each.

    Why not using the latest version of visual c++? Aren’t there any bugs in old versions? Latest versions might generate cache friendly code.
