    oh ok ty...would suggest there are indeed complex and intricately connected pathways...energy vortexes of mind body...the tricky bit is science being able to measure subjective experiences,reliably,repeatedly - but! it has been done to some degree fwiw. worth a brief study perhaps? cheers!

    I am doing my master and have a colleague with that age more or less. I think is very nice for the academic community have more experienced people together with younger people with less background. Normally in academy the more diverse the better is the discussions as more ground are covered, at least in music i guess.

    I can't arm tracks when I'm mixing a film. Having selected tracks auto-arm will just gang up the volume, so I'm hoping for something better. At the very least volume+pan automation recording has to be treated like you treat midi and audio. I was hoping you could come up with a solution that perhaps activates when a track is in anything but trim-read or read mode. Please think it over, because any fader jockeys(like myself) are having a bad time. Discuss in the forum ?

    ahh ok- sorry if it touched a nerve..bit jokey- but still do not think it would be bloat at all..very useful in fact..what else are people paying to upgrade for? old,or,new stuff?

  • Posted by Justin on November 11 2022, 11:59am in 6473:
    If you're using hardware outputs, they should all be latency compensated automatically and you'll be good.

  • Posted by Ignacio (93.35.165.x) on November 11 2022, 10:58am in 6473:
    I see, thanks. And if I don't use ReaStream but for example. If using a session as a tape machine and outputing through analog outputs, DANTE or ReaRoute. What would be the best way to do this? Or how does people who use consoles do in REAPER? Keeping it simple with no internal sends, but tracks with plugins and maybe folders should be sending all the channels at the same time, if the hardware outpus are post fader or post fx? Any tips on how can I understand this further?

  • Posted by Justin on November 11 2022, 2:07am in 6473:
    Tthe main thing is that multiple instances of ReaStream will almost certainly not be synchronized. The latency compensation behaviors and anticipative FX multiprocessing could also cause issues, but even without that you'll be in trouble...

  • Posted by Ignacio (5.90.3.x) on November 11 2022, 12:44am in 6473:
    Thanks a lot, I haven't thought of that way. I imagine but lately I don't have luck in the forum with this type of questions. Is there any guide that explains how the latency compensation works in cases where you want to output audio like this, or even using analog outputs? I guess that if just going to the master channel, the fastest tracks wait for the slowest and they all go out together. But what happens if there is a hierarchy and audio is being outputted at different points of the singal flow? Thanks!

    FWIW if you buy a REAPER license, you for all intents and purposes "own" that license and it's good for as long as you want to use those REAPER versions, so what's the hangup? You own the license to use, not the actual thing.

  • Posted by Justin on November 2 2022, 12:44pm in 6463:
    You can own the license to use it -- as long as you follow the terms of the license the license is perpetual for the versions included, but we'll never give you ownership of the product itself. That's strictly ours.

    I personally think, that this question can be answered by the wonderful people in the Reaper forum as well. Probably with suggestions for crazy scripts already doing what you are after. As Justin didn't invent humanization, there's plenty of people knowing this too. And such a thread, beginning with your question, will help others too and so on.

    Thanks Mespotine. One of the issues, for me at least, is going beyond tertiary information about some topic I find interesting after the bulk of the fun is had; you'll get some cursory implementation and surface level understanding before the new shiny thing shows up. I can't help but feel that's a bad trait to have, or maybe I've just naive. I wonder how much of Reaper's development involves a cycle like that?

  • Posted by Mespotine (46.114.205.x) on October 22 2022, 6:26pm in 6446:
    Remember: the sheer existence of Reaper is (IIRC) because Justin wanted to make music and other DAWs weren't fun to use. So he started Reaper which indicated what to learn.

  • Posted by Mespotine (46.114.205.x) on October 22 2022, 6:24pm in 6446:
    It rather depends on what you want to do in your career. Which is probably what makes fun for you. Specialize in this. For instance, if you are interested in obscure programming languages, learn old ones. There's tons of old computing systems still running on COBOL etc. But the programmers who knew it die out. It's a niche that could give you income for a long time. So it depends on your career choice.

  • Posted by Justin on October 22 2022, 6:18pm in 6447:

    For sure, I just meant specifically regarding career/skillset. There's a lot of overlap between interesting topics re: programming that I find fun (primarily), but also advance my skillset. But certain things, like webdev stuff, I have almost 0 interest in, but I feel like it would be beneficial to get a baseline. Things like that... Tangentially, any network programming book recommendations? Thanks :)

    I would add, if it sounds fun(and isn't destructive to you or others) can be reason enough to learn something. Not everything must fit a goal to be worth your time.

    You would remember each iteration, you would go to that year with all knowledge you already have, each year loop would start equal. You can also choose a month/day to start the loop that will end 365 days after.

"add" aside, I write the latter arrow style most often these days. Curious if you find too terse or just, whatever. I do see benefits to having "function" there for quick recognition when visually scanning lines. I guess it's like same chord/different voicing, or same voicing just on different strings :)

I would recommended to try read the documentation provided by VS itself in order to find the logical sections. The most straight forward Win32 docs so far has to be MSDN 6.0.

    Thanks. Though I meant some of the values before the met. pattern too, the missing ones here: github.com/reaper-oss/sws/pull/156...Btw. in my previous question I typed the Less-than_sign and it got cut off.

    I think it's a common logical error that the set of modern anglican protestant values (or lack of humanist ones) is considered congruent with the one of Jesus only because the bearers of the previous still choose to label themselves with the latter's past name. The Pythons have made this perfecly clear with ...Brian.

    Let's start with a "short" one then: Dan Carlin's Hardcore History. Hahaha! But honestly, I think you might enjoy it.

    re: CHAR, whatever floats your boat? it's rarely an issue, the only real advantage I can see is if you made it typedef signed char CHAR; since arm defaults to unsigned char :/

    this-> is too tedious to type and you could still accidentally access a member via the implicit this without it.

    For me WDL [member] function naming makes sense at first glance, everything is good and crystal clear: WDL_TypedBuf::Add() - never understood what was the deal with the STL equivalent std::vector::push_back

    Somewhat related - am I insane for thinking about using 'typedef char CHAR', I use fixed-width types typedefd to shorter-hand, e.g 'typedef uint8_t U8', and I prefer them as uppercase, so to be consistent I feel like I should use 'CHAR', seems kinda crazy, no?? haha

  • Posted by jack (185.213.154.x) on October 9 2022, 4:59pm in 6420:
    Any reason you prefer m_ instead of a more modern 'this->'? I think that removes the collision and ambiguity in member functions; a quick grep of your WDL stuff seems that you rarely, if ever, use 'this->', (nor do I).

    any number? ok I pick 0

  • Posted by 2022 (2.26.240.x) on October 2 2022, 8:21pm in 6411:
    o no..in this case,just 1,7..or 42 (you can pick any number!) :D

    tbch- (we) done karate in earlier years- it WAS 1 of the best investments ever made.. it not only gave confidence,speed,& long term health,but also ability to overcome inner conflicts...as this is where the true "battles" begin & end. ;)

    the C++ standard library isn't risky, but it takes you a lot farther away from the machine code, so you sometimes lose track of what code is actually being generated. That's just my curmudgeon of a take ;) and no we don't use Boost either

    Sorry, that's why you built WDL ? Do that means that using C++ standard library is risky and why many people rely on it ? Best.

    We do have our moments of failure, but in general it's less about guidelines and more about care and taking time to make sure things are correct. Being able to understand the code being generated is a help, which is part of why we don't use the C++ standard library, it's usually pretty incomprehensible.
