Optimizing your system performance

Many MIDI Rules users (including me) have/had troubles with system freezes and MIDI crashes of the BCD2000 while using MIDI Rules and Traktor. Both issues have to do with real-time performance of your system (OS, hardware, peripheral devices, applications, etc.). One bottleneck component is enough to slow down the whole system.
Therefore optimizing the system performance has to cover all involved components. Windows XP users should take a look at the Windows XP Optimization Guide. A lot of tips can also be found in the NI forum. If you know additional tweaks/tips, please comment.

    Great work guys!

    I had a lot of problems in the past and got support from the Behringer team who suggested visiting the site below.

    Basically the same stuff, and it worked.

    @Moras: Make sure that you’ve installed the latest ASIO driver (v.1.1.1.0)

    If your system still freezes every x minutes, unplug your notebook batterie. (If you use a notebook of course…)

    I cannot install the latest driver for bcd2000, namely v1.1.1.0. Whenever I run the installer, it says I should tunr on the controller and press continue. I do turn it on, but there is no continue button, only a “close” button. Setup doesn’t even start.

    I’m stuck with the v1.0.6 drivers (if I’m not mistaking) and things work fine, but I usually find it better to have everything up to date.

    Any idea why I can’t seem to install the new drivers?

    @ ZGOMOT

    I think you may be using vista. am i correct? if not try this anyway.

    before you run the bcd2000 driver v 1.1.1.0 right click it, go properties, compatability mode, and run it as a XP sp2 mode.

    i had the same problem

    I recently installed mb4guns/cycokrauts Flavor 2007-02-05 v2 for BCD2000 & Traktor3 and have found it great and flawless.

    I defragged, ran Ccleaner, ran Speedup my PC, and disabled a lot of programs from running at boot (just to be cautious) and I witnessed seamless performance doing a 7hr set in a bar/club on a friday night.

    I’ve since enabled those startup programs and still have literally zero problems when running multiple software as well as traktor. (I find traktor works best with minimal other proggies running in the background like SRS sandbox, Realtech sound manager and other similar progs)
