Question: Hey, what kinda music are you into nowadays? How much time do you spend playing music?
Asked by Rano (146.196.45.x) on April 2 2024, 2:47pm
Reply on April 2 2024, 5:47pm:
    I've been really digging Idles. And all of the old favorites too. Time spent playing music varies week to week and month to month, but I enjoy it.

Question: Do you work together with schwa to solve a same problem or do you work separately on different problems?
Asked by Jo24 (91.165.163.x) on April 1 2024, 7:10pm
Reply on April 1 2024, 7:17pm:
    It depends on how the problem relates to our respective areas of expertise: sometimes we collaborate on problems, other times we deal with them completely separately.

    I hadn't seen this, thanks for the heads-up! Looks like a good policy for them to have.

Question: Is the whole ninjam codebase covered by GPLv2? There's a confusing ninjam/license.txt file stating a custom license agreement but it's not clear what this applies to.
Asked by cbix (89.0.31.x) on March 30 2024, 2:27pm
Reply on March 30 2024, 2:53pm:
    ah thanks, I will remove that ninjam/license.txt -- it is all GPLv2
Question: When you're running, do you think about the REAPER code? Do you have any new ideas that come to mind at that moment? :)
Asked by robert (2.7.2.x) on March 29 2024, 12:31pm
Reply on March 29 2024, 6:16pm:
    Sometimes, usually it's more a problem-solving sort of thing rather than new ideas, but new ideas have also happened.
Question: I am currently designing a custom game engine and I have taken inspiration from Reaper for it's modular architecture. I was wondering if I should create a custom plugin architecture for the engine modules or just use dlopen() and LoadLibraryA with compatibility stubs? Thanks in advance.

Question: Are you programming for cache? What's your idea about data oriented programming?
Asked by Ruchira (123.231.105.x) on March 27 2024, 6:12pm
Reply on March 29 2024, 12:20pm:
    Cache considerations in performance sensitive code are definitely a thing!
Question: hey jf- have you tested any of the brand virtual headsets & will you be walking or running around the city with any on soon? :D

    I tried one of the Apple ones, it was simultaneously amazing and also a long way from being something I would use. Maybe in a few generations…

Question: What are you coding tools (OS, text editor/IDE, pipeline, etc.)?
Asked by someone (89.187.187.x) on March 24 2024, 8:00pm
Reply on March 24 2024, 9:40pm:
    OS: whichever, usually macOS out of convenience (M1 MBA is light and the battery lasts forever). vim for text editing, and preferred build tool is make (though I'll use a VS version 2013-2022, or Xcode as needed for those platforms). For release REAPER builds we use gcc 4.x for linux, xcode12 for macOS universal, Xcode9+ICC for macOS intel, and VC2005+ICC for Windows.

Question: How much hours do you sleep, do you see any correlation between how good you rest and work/exercise productivity?
Asked by 19781546 (186.210.25.x) on March 22 2024, 12:26am
Reply on March 24 2024, 4:43am:
    I prefer 9-10 hours, not sure if I've analyzed correlations but I definitely feel terrible when I don't get enough sleep.
Question: hey jf- "Free Palestine"? how do you feel about all these conflicting views between people?
Asked by 2024 (81.131.121.x) on March 20 2024, 10:05pm
Reply on March 21 2024, 5:57pm (edited at March 24 2024, 4:15am):
    That conversation is full of tragedies, including the most minor which is that you can't really have a civil discussion about it on the internet without people yelling names at you. Sigh.

    (as evidenced by the commenters, again, disabled comments, double sigh)

    My glutes pretty much always hurt these days, though it is worse when they get a lot of use.
Question: Are you aware of the latest(?) change in the VST3 SDK license no longer containing an exception for existing hosts to host VST2 plugins? kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p...What are your thoughts, will that affect REAPER?

Reply on March 19 2024, 7:50pm:
    Yeah that's pretty old I think?
Question: Hi, how can I use Winamp on my Mac ? I can't open the app because it constantly crashes, saying that it closed unexpectedly.
Asked by Elijah (86.192.68.x) on March 18 2024, 8:38pm
Reply on March 18 2024, 8:46pm:
    Are you running Windows in Parallels or something? Or is there a mac version you're trying to run? Anyway Winamp isn't something I've touched in about 20 years so I'm probably not the best person to ask.
Question: Hey justin, don't you think that AI will make all daws obsolete? Can Reaper adapt to this?

    We'll see, lol
Question: hey jf- do you have any fears or concerns about being cloned or replicated either physically or virtually?

Reply on March 15 2024, 5:54pm:
    Not really, no. Raises all sorts of interesting questions for sure, but I can't say I'm concerned. Did you read the Neal Stephenson novel "Fall" ?

Question: Why it is compulsory to make at least one public class in Java, whereas there is no needed to make a class in C++?
Asked by Abhi (106.215.121.x) on March 14 2024, 6:14am
Reply on March 15 2024, 5:55pm:
    I don't do a lot of Java but my memory is that Java doesn't have a main() function (as C/C++ do), but a main class instead?
