    Hah well I can't run a 4 min mile that's for sure! and they don't establish causality, maybe those who are able to run so quickly just live longer... but anyway I like running and it seems to be what we're made for!

    Ah yes, right on
Question: Dear Justin, I've searched extensively on forums and couldn't find an answer. Is there a way to modify the default behavior of routing a multi-channel track so that it sends all channels to another multi-channel track, instead of just "channels 1-2"? This is crucial for handling templates with hundreds of tracks. I tried using the SetTrackSendInfo_Value method for scripting, but it didn't work as expected. Thank you for your help.

    Hmm I don't think so, we should add that to the "track/send defaults" in the prefs, will look at that.
Question: hey jf- why do we have vertical piano rolls in daws when a piano is played horizontally? (other than obvious answer) heh, would a horizontal piano roll make no sense to people? (+bonus question! how do you feel about top> bottom tracker style rolls?) ta
Asked by 2024 (86.185.199.x) on May 7 2024, 9:51pm
Reply on May 8 2024, 10:36pm:
    I guess because we usually represent time as left to right? the only vertical piano rolls I've seen have the music come from the top, which is also backwards because we read top to bottom etc...
Question: Which countries have you been to?
Asked by Will (23.125.224.x) on May 7 2024, 2:38pm

Question: Have you got any favourite desert island distortion/overdrive/fuzz?
Asked by Dom64 (82.132.224.x) on May 7 2024, 6:29am
Reply on May 7 2024, 9:23am:
    Iā€™m very happy with my Plasmatron, but the Strymon Sunset is pretty versatile for the non-fuzz side of that question. But a friend has a lot of pedals and there are so many good ones!

    I'm sure if you go a little past the 60-day eval period nobody will show up at your house and arrest you.

Question: hey jf. are you a C++ dev or C w/ classes dev?
Asked by whipped llama (162.19.25.x) on May 5 2024, 12:11pm
Reply on May 5 2024, 2:50pm (edited at May 5 2024, 2:51pm):
    Somewhere in between... classes are useful, templates are useful (though you have to keep in mind the potential code size implications). Operator overloading can be very useful when refactoring code but I wouldn't write brand new code using it. Inheritance and virtual functions can be very useful, but multiple inheritance I will try to avoid, etc.
