  1. That's very kind thank you. I'm starting to feel a bit better each day really like my energy is coming back. Start counselling tomorrow so yeah, it's kind of terrifying as I'm going to have to hash up a lot of stuff. Lots of tears to come I think 😞 I'll be OK in time I'm sure.
  2. Seller said this in response: ''I’m not sure if the battery has been swapped out on this, I’m not really that technically minded I’m afraid. But what I can say, is that it’s stored the settings on patches between recording sessions.Hope this info helps!'' - So I mean, sounds good to me! Excited!
  3. Listening to your tunes for a bit now 🙂
  4. Will do. Thanks again man, you're a gent.
  5. Yeah,I saw it and was like..do you know what, fuck it. Huge reverse rever here I come 🙂 Thank you very much for all the help everyone. Love WATMM sometimes.
  6. Midi Verb 2 On it's way. I probably paid too much £150 but it was in really good condition. Excited! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alesis-Midiverb-II-Alesis-Midiverb-2-Retro-16bit-Reverb-unit-GREAT-CONDITION/174304010995?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  7. Thank you very much! I toally threw myself under the bus. It's mad when I think back on it. It reveals so much about yourself when you're forced to operate in a crisis. It's kind of scray to realise how prepared I am to sacrifice myself for others. Good and bad. I bet there are tonnes of NHS workers off work with the same as me right now. Madness.
  8. Thank you very much. Yeah, I was close to like updating the BIOS but decided against it. It's basically windows not liking the Focusrite driver from what I can tell. Seems OK now but WTF. Very silly.
  9. So I solved it. 96 k for streaming audio sorted it out. No idea why. Seems to be a driver issue. https://www.tenforums.com/sound-audio/147266-high-dpc-latency-causes-extremely-sound-stuttering.html
  10. I've actually identified the issue. It's ''usbport.sys - USB 1.1 _2.0 Port Driver, Microsoft Coropration'' - that's the source of my latency. Someone please tell me how the hell to uninstall that as it's clearly corrupted! According to device manager, its driver has been updated but I think there is maybe a way to access hidden drivers or something to update those or actually uninstall them so windows refershes it. Seems like a common problem too but I can't seem to find the manager to replace it. Interestingly my wifi connection was also introducing latency so I'm now ethernet cabled. Please god someone tell me how to do this!
  11. What's really interesting for me now is that upon reflection is so clear how royally fucked over I was. A newly qualified Speech and Language Therapist thrown into a frontline role and thrown like a rag doll from Covid+ ward to covid+ ward doing everything you can possibly imagine..yes, that too and yes that as well. But I was just like in crisis mode I couldn't see past it. I should have been withdrawn. Most of my colleagues were doing their normal jobs in some capcity or another whilst the newly qualified was sent off into the fray. The whole redeployment situation was incredibly poorly managed. I appreciate it's unprecedented but come on, it's just not appropriate. Now I have to come to terms with the fact that like patient care is massively variable and in some cases really horrendous and that's who I work for 😞 It's a really horrible reality to come to terms with but I suppose I have to or I should probably quit. It's like realisations that like staff who have been working in the service battle with their entire careers and I've been exposed to the extent of it during a pandemic with no training, supervision or oversight. I'm amazed I didn't get Covid but I'm certainly an emotional wreck and now in recovery though. I deserve an appology and atleast some kind of recognition surely. I bet there are tonnes of staff feeling this way. Really sad. Do you know what I'm going to do though, I'm going to sort my head and return an even better carer than I was before and continue to advocate for patients in the same way I normally do. Huge personal growth coming my way I think but I need to sort out all these thoughts.
  12. Haha. Oh my god to be fair the clapping during the peak weeks totally set me off in tears as I felt appreciated. I've gone through this massively traumatic experience and feel totally unrewarded for my tireless efforts actually. I think I'm processing a lot of resentment as I was just treated like a fuck puppet the whole time and barely thanked. I did from the patients at times tho so that's wonderful 🙂 The clapping was nice and very emotional for many of us in the first weeks. The whole health service was being totally hammered by this fucking thing. Grrrr
  13. Thanks to you especially. Yes, I think it's like I'm experiencing this massive come down off being totally wired for weeks. Extreme stress you've put that very well. I need to sort of calm back down and stop feeling so wired all the time but yes, it's going to take some time.
  14. Yeah, I've actually tried that. Thanks man. I know what you mean though. It's kind of unpredictable.
