Create a new user for high-CPU-usage apps
Authored by: bjmorgan on Sep 17, '04 11:40:03AM

Yes, I did this for my audio applications (i.e. GarageBand, Digital Performer) using tips from the September 2004 edition of Electronic Musician Magazine that have a couple more idea in addition to these. And there definitly is a large bump in processing power. A couple other suggestions they had include:

1. Disable any non-System font that the application doesn't require.
2. Make your desktop picture a solid color background.
3. Use shadowkiller to remove window shadows.
4. Use Process Wizard to optimize CPU priority over user owned processes.
