SWS !? S&M ?
"SWS" stands for "Standing Water Studios". It is Tim Payne
's project studio.
It's aptly named as all of the incarnations of the recording space have flooded at one time or another. Tim is the project founder.
Some rumors pretend the "S&M" bit would stand for "Simple & Mighty", or that it was inspired by this quote
Well, the only justification Jeffos
could provide is that & was an efficient character to filter the action list (and fun, code-wise).
Jeffos is a project owner, together with Tim.
The extension is poorly named. This name is subject to change as it is not representative of the collaborative effort either.
There is a dozen of project members actually:
who has contributed the popular "Groove tool",
whose extension has been merged in,
and also Breeder
, and Wol
Donations go to a common wallet which covers website costs at the moment. The rest could be saved for something:
A vacation fund so we can visit Cockos? Beers? Hire Geoffrey Francis to write a manual update?
Well, this is yet to be defined but make sure we are not making money out of this project: it is only led by passion...

Haha! Thank YOU for supporting the project!
Outdated documentation ?
The available documentation does not (cannot) follow the development pace, unfortunately.
Even the list of features documented below
is woefully incomplete and does not reflect the latest-and-greatest features.
The same goes with the user manual
which is well outdated now (for extension version v1.7.1).
It remains an awesome resource and your best entry point, though.
For "undocumented" features, you will at least find detailed information in the above What's new?
(or offline, in REAPER:
Main menu > Extensions > About SWS Extension > What's new?).
