And I am not sure how much of that he really meant in terms of the way features are evaluated, but i'm just saying it was disappointing to hear.
Yes - this is a misunderstanding of Reaper on your side. We had this already
in the thread about the "potential Reaper roadshow" - if I remember right.

Justin does not primarily develop Reaper in order to reach as many musicians
or customers as possible. Justin does not primarily develop Reaper in order
to impress anybody. No! Justin primarily develops Reaper for his personal
favour.

So Justin is more an artist than a business man. An artist who develops an
artistic DAW which is *his* artwork. His "child". An artist who celebrates
freedom and independence - in contrast to business, marketing and profit
compulsion.

Ooh, I am a little appalled by my own declamatory words, but this is how I notice
Justin, John and the genesis of Reaper.
