Optimizing The Service local

    I've got my PC blazing and now doing final tweaks. I followed these extra tweaks first: http://forum.cakewalk.com/tm.aspx?&m=1862515&mpage=1
    I now have CBDAWOS (Custom Built DAW Optimization Syndrome) :tongue: What a rush!

    I'm wondering how close you all go to the bare bones in Black Viper's Windows 7 Super Tweaks Win7 64 bit SP 1 final Services setting?

    I need to keep my PC available to only access the www for certain reasons, I'm aware of keeping WLAN AutoConfig set to automatic for my wireless tap to my mainframe.

    other than that... I'm wondering what others have to say about the barebones Service Settings?

    Is it possible to save my Service settings in case I need to restore them from this point on, Or to have a few personal settings backed up?

    Click the start button. Type services.msc . Left click Action. Left click export list.

    I haven't bothered with the bare bones. I get what I need done with the Tweaked versions.

    How do you import, to restore?

    Got it. I'm learning how to search for info better now.

    I think I steered you wrong. That export list is just a text file. Your best bet is to go to C: then to Windows then to System 32 and find services.msc . Right click and copy. Put it on a usb stick or something and then rename it immediately so you don't have it accessed accidentally.

    Or use the console..... ;-)

    right click on services >properties>Previous Version

    a backup is there that can be restored. But I didn't save it. Do you know how that is saved, John?

    Again, found it in the help. Win7 is very nicely organized.

    This starts to turn into a Pandora's box though. As I speed up the OS, turning off services and certain functions I also remove some of the needed if SHTF . lol.

    Man, was I missing the mark using Apple all these years. PC is so much more fine tunable. I see how you can get this thing down to just an audio workstation, HD Drives and a monitor, period. Impressive.

    Sequoia is so fast now. I can load in a full session running automation like Reaper. Changing screens, editing etc is near instant. As soon as it loads, I can hit play and it start without a pause. Sequoia is a big program loaded with everything from audio and midi, right up to mastering plugins and burning. This PC isn't even sweating now. Wow.

    So did you do most of the barebones tweaks or did you hold off a bit? I like my networking etc all on so that's one reason I stopped with the normal tweaks.

    Come to think of it, I'm not sure I tweaked the remote laptop at all when I loaded Win7 on it.....so much better than Vista or even XP IMHO.

    Still making sure everything is solid before I do.

    I've got a problem with Emulator X3 not working with Sequoia worse than XP. Nothing but crashing. Damn. I've got some original stuff I wanted to start working on but its looking like the end in Sequoia for those two being compatible.
    I loaded X3 in Reaper and its flawless. I'm thinking about another DAW and leaving Sequoia for mastering now. Leave Sequoia it in the ION.
    The new version of Sequoia 64bit may get it right. Sequoia has never been tight with midi and I need that for my composing rig. Damn, Sequoia sounds so amazing. I'm pretty bummed out.
    I might have cave and get ProTools 9. Another topic coming... erk.

    There's nothing wrong with having a separate program for mastering.

    Yes, that's for sure. It was intended but I wasn't expecting to loose Sequoia for my composing DAW. I wanted everything to be Sequoia, both mixing and mastering. No worries though, I've been messing with Reaper all night and it's very cool. I downloaded the ProTools9 Theme "PT9wALTERED" and it made it that much better.

    This is the theme I like best.

    Oh I am a happy man today! I loaded both versions of Emulator X3 32bit and 64bit and it turned on like a new timing chain. I'm so happy because I was looking over ProTools 9 and its miles off of being pro without spending 2 grand on the kit to make it actually run. Looks like they are in the same price point as Sequoia and Nuendo if you spend the cash to get it up to level.

    Sequoia is back in MIDI land. Its not 100% snappy as it could be but its tolerable and I may be able to tweak it more. Its working solid. Now to get back to fine tuning this DAW.

    As always, thanks John!
