  • Stop the background music.
  • Try gamebooster by IoBit (Not Recommended)

Optimisation tricks for Advanced usersEdit

The following tips require some higher understanding of a computer. Do not try them out unless you know what exactly you are doing.

  • Defragment your hard drive. This is not always necessary, but might be required for computers with smaller hard drive partitions, or hard drives which are 75% full. Do not defragment a Solid State Drive, or SSD.
  • Use CCleaner to clean out obselete files from your system. Beware, deleting browser cookies will make you lose all of your created songs, and using the registry cleaner has a small chance of spoiling your computer.
  • Use IoBit's GameBooster. This is not recommended as users have pointed out that it does slow down a computer in the long run.
  • Turn off your antivirus. This is not recommended as turning off your antivirus will make your PC prone to virus attacks.
