sorry to be so dramatic, it was just really crazy. no idea what i did. but 100% connected to my lack of understanding about the world.
i am sorry and remain so grateful for your work, presence and guidance.
i did check that monolase version and it works, seems to sense my grid. but still no actual interaction with the grid. i did delete those zeroconf externals you first sent as i was afraid of bogeyman. so that may be the prob there.
but my absolute necessity audio side is working, so i am no longer feeling ill. would still love to get ml working, but i amy have just learned my lesson...
