Yes, the xruns were actually starting after the recorded section of
the track had finished, so gverb was totally out to lunch. Laziness
always comes back to bite you in the arse. Thanks for the advice, I'll
put it on a bus. I think I also had the input bandwidth set to 1 so gverb
was kind of hungry.
