How to improve performance

So the studio's a little sleepy? Does it produce crackling, glitchy, lagging sounds or random silence when all you wanted was to jam some Grand Piano? Try some of the following suggestions:

  • Make sure you're not running a lot of power consuming programs on your computer, as they can slow down the performance of Soundtrap.
  • Try reducing the playback sound quality. Go to Settings -> Sound quality and select "Low" (1).
  • Try the "Freeze track" feature. Click on the dot-dot-dot menu in the track header and choose "Freeze track (free up CPU)". This will temporarily "freeze" the track from editing, but it will reduce the CPU usage a whole lot (2).


(1) Settings -> Sound quality -> Low

    Hi, is there a way to save frozen tacks and have them frozen when you close and reload the project, so that there's non need to freeze them again? Thank you.

    My studio is not responding to anything I do, for example press the play button or try and save it, it is definitely not my computer because I can do other thing on Google Chrome
