Device Optimization

Caustic 3 will be here soon!  With that in mind it might be wise to start optimizing our devices so that we can harness the awseom power of Caustic 3.  This can include deleting unused apps, clearing cache etc...  Most of you with newer devices with quad cores wont have issues but older devices will need a little help I thinkto run C3.

Also, check and make sure your cpu is actually running as fast as it can.  I recently had issues on my Droid Razr where Caustic 3 was bogging down my cpu.  I did a factory reset to try and clear out the junk and it still was slow.  So I then proceeded to try and overclock using set cpu (needs Root)  and saw that I wasnt running the full 1.2ghz.  After setting it to 1.2 all is well with Casutic 3 and I'm only pulling 70% max cpu load with full machines, automation, the works!  

If others have tips on how to speed up/maintain our devices please post!

If I'm really serious about a

If I'm really serious about a project I will do the following.... 

 

1. Shut off your network radios.... WiFi, 4G, 3G etc....  I bet some of you are loaded up with apps and browsers and feeds (hello FB and TW etc....)  

2. Then go to an App Manager and swipe away all apps that you don't need to use..... heck shut them all down....

 

These two things alone, are the easiest way to optiimize your device's resources, memory, and cpu energy, to get Caustic to run smoothly...

On my devices, I don't run games and useless apps, so when I'm set up to make some sounds or music, I have a true clean slate to work with..... I don't FB or TW or any social media crap, so I have nothing I need to constantly run over the network, so it's easy for me to shut it all off, and go make some tunes.

Yeah good call with the social media apps, Facebook is especially wasteful!
