Dave Moore: Many thank for putting this up. God stuf

Job Bakker: Optimized my PC and had a look on the internet to see if i missed something.. but gone a bit further than your basic settings.. Working for over 20 years in the IT and make music in my spare time..started with Cubase on a Atari ST (Midi only) now using Cubase 5 on a Intel Dual-core PC whats been dedicated only for making/editing music, no other software and no network (internet).. using USB for my Sound/recording system. Controllers and Synth's (USB -> Midi) can use up to 50 tracks in cubase before the CPU can't handle it no more, but not happens often.. . Some tips to get the most out of a (old) system by dedicating it... Start with a clean installation (W7 SP1) using a new HDD, first Disable all hardware your not using in the BIOS like: Power management, ports, ide controllers (if your only using sata) when installed, connect to Internet, check if there are drivers missing (device manager) and install the drivers that are missing, use the latest drivers for Sound/VGA, Activate windows and disconnect Network, if you keep it off the internet there is no need for Windows update's and you won't need Internet security (virus-scanner/firewall) you can disable the Network interface now also (Bios) Use all the tips shown in this video, and also have a look at the list of services, press Win-key+R (run) and type: services.msc, you have a list showing what services are running, by double click (dialog) you can disable startup: Services you don't need (if not connected to network/internet) you disable most are Network related (IP-helper/DHCP/DNS) just read info and if its about internet/network you won't need it.. other services that can be disabled: Spooler (printer) Defender, windows update.. Next uninstall all windows features you won't need (control panel: programs..) and disable all notifications from security center.. do a reboot .. and Install all your Software your using (DVD/USB stick) and if your using ASIO install ASIO4all..When you got it how you want it make a (Ghost) image so if something goes wrong (HDD crash) you can restore it in no time.. Last Tip: Use the HDD for Windows only (>160GB/7200rpm) and use a 2nd drive for all the DATA you working with, and have a 3th USB Drive you use to store backups of your DATA (and a backup of the (Ghost) Image, and you can keep in a safe place.

TEMAOHI2787: VERY Helpful!!!

tik masterflex: thank you!

TheoMartel: this is very helpful :) thanks for this :)

mmobilestudio: If people apply these tweaks, some will notice a greater difference than others. Each computer is different, different hardware and software, there are almost endless possibilities of combinations and configurations and some are more conducive to working with audio then others.

2009korte: thanx 4 tips

irrelevanceuk: Thanks for the performance tweak regarding letting windows handle visual effects. Have a dedicated gpu but always stripped this back as a matter of course. Windows looks nicer and I havn't seen any performance dip.

mmobilestudio: Hi, these tweaks eliminate unnecessary background services and adjust your computer to optimally free up resources for your CPU, which should reduce latency. You'll notice the biggest difference if you are using softsynths, softsamplers or effects plugins. So when you're mixing audio, or overdubbing for example. Anytime you're sound card / audio interface is being used (recording/playback) your DAW will benefit from these

maarsmusic: Good overview!
