Surface Pro 7 – Initial tweaking and testing

So you’ve got your SP7, updated Windows, installed your music software and your USB audio interface – does it work? Well, yes and no. In this video I’ll show you the problems you may encounter when you first run your SP7 and what you can do about it.  This is not a deep dive into the performance (that is to come) this is getting the SP7 to behave so that we can play virtual instruments and run DAW software without clicks or pops.

Plus I look at a brand new tweak that I’ve never seen before that more or less sorts everything out for us!

Here’s the text you need to enable Ultimate Performance mode:

powercfg -duplicatescheme e9a42b02-d5df-448d-aa00-03f14749eb61

Note: If you are running Windows 10 v2004 May 2020 Update or later then the power tweaks may not work. I have a new guide in the YouTube channel.
