Re: Freeing Up CPU and RAM

Reduce the polyphony of synth patches to the bare minimum. This affects CPU load a lot for certain synths. If you're just playing one note at a time for a riff, you can get away with 1,2,3, or 4 voices of polyphony instead of 8 or 16 or 32. Sometimes it even sounds better because the tails get cut off instead of colliding with the latter notes.

Disable scheduled tasks in the task scheduler. This is often overlooked, but this is where Windows Vista, 7,8, & 10 have some of the disk intensive tasks that run and will re-start after they fail. You can edit them or disable them or delete them. But just be careful.
