    Windows 10 2004 latency improved

    Is it only me who noticed that build 2004 has improved DPC timings? LatencyMon would usually report 1500-1600 microsec (ntoskrnl) during the first hour when run with Win10 builds 19xx. Same PC with build 2004 never reports >700 microsec (the longest test was ran for almost 24hrs).

I've had a look, but I haven't managed to find this question being asked or answered. (Please feel free to link me to somewhere where this is...

    Digital Performer 10 : wrong font (musical) for patch names

    Hello, In my install of Digital Performer 10 on Windows 10, the patch names appear in musical font (probably QuickScribe), which is unreadable.

    Windows 10 ButterflyTaskbar utility

    Found a very nice utility that prevents the taskbar popping up every time you (accidentally) hover the mouse over it. Thought this could be useful for anyone using e.g. a DAW with transport buttons at the bottom. AFAIK, Windows lets you only auto-hide the taskbar or keep it in place. Either...

    After I switch my workstation from old Core 2 Duo to i7 with a brand new mother board, from time to time I can hear strange static noise (like LP) only in left channel, but only when music is played.

    I don't perform live but rather I compose. However, I don't play piano well either so I'm usually using the step editor to draw in notes. I have an Akai EWI wind controller that I've never liked because of the fact that the keys are touch-sensitive and being a sax player I can't ever get used...
