Happy readers of the e-book :slight_smile:

[1] We don’t make a habit of publishing links to companies’ content marketing materials, but this happens to be particularly useful – and no, it’s not just a big sales pitch for Gig Performer! @ Synth and SoftwareLINK

[2] For me, this is the best “bible” for optimizing a laptop! Gandi @ Native Instruments → LINK

[3] I’ve gone through this below and found it useful. thedogsdinner @ ntlite .com → LINK

[7] After optimizing the laptop with the guide my computer runs faster and Rig 6 works so much better. I’m happy! denjack @ Native Instruments → LINK

[8] Recommendation from LX2 @ Steinberg → LINK

[9] I use Gig Performer (among others) with a 2012 Lenovo PC 8GB RAM i5-3320M and I can load about 15 plugins playing simultaneously without any CPU load problem and glitches at 44,1kHz/128 samples. But to get this result, my computer is dedicated only to music and optimized thanks to this 92 pages guide whose recommendations I carefully followed @ VI-Control → LINK

[10] Wie gesagt ist die Konfiguration des PCs nicht unerheblich. Hatte es im Forum hier schon mal erwähnt, es gibt für Windows-PCs eine super Anleitung mit viel Praxiswissen. Sucht einfach mal nach “The Ultimate Guide to Optimize your Windows PC for the Stage”. lx2 @ Steinberg → LINK


Users that have E cores will find this very interesting - a VST3 plugin NoThrottle. → LINK
