Question: Back in March 1998, a string of new Winamp versions in the 1.8 range were released adding genre versions, some of which would be backported into the ID3 spec. In Winamp 1.82, the genre "Negerpunk" was added (which, of course, isn't a real genre). Do you remember the story behind the bit at Nullsoft, or anyone else that may know more about it?

    I was adding things (including features, and genres) in response to requests from EFnet IRC, including, regrettably, that one.
Question: As a programmer, I often deviate from a healthy lifestyle and get sucked into my work. Do you get into positions like that as well?

    Fix more bugs and add more features, hah.
Question: Since it will be legal to do now, do you have any interest in hacking on your old code again and adding features to winamp?

    we'll see what the license is, but nah I think my time is better spent on REAPER. I don't use Windows enough anyway.
Question: What's your take on this? llama-group.com/wp-content/uploads...(TL;DR the people who own Winamp are open sourcing it)

    Hopefully they GPL it! It's all based on a bit of ancient crap written by a stupid teenager so it will be nice if someone cleans it up and modernizes it a bit. but not too much.

Question: are there a lot of feature branches on the line besides the current ones on dev? not asking specifically for one, maybe mroe like a number, just curious if there's a queu of features youre maybe interested in but can't manage yet or for any reason are just there waiting.

    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!
Question: Just noticed, that in v7 mouse-modifiers differentiate now between mouse-modifier actions and regular actions in the reaper-menu.ini. Thanks for this addition.

    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

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?
