Why Is Power Management Important?

We strongly recommend to deactivate all power saving options in Microsoft Windows in order to ensure an interruption-free operation of MADRIX.

 

Microsoft Windows operating systems offer a wide variety of power management options. In most cases, PCs, laptops, notebooks, and netbooks benefit from a longer battery life if a good power management is in use. But certain problems might occur because of computer power savings nevertheless:

After a while your MADRIX KEY cannot be identified by the software anymore.
Your hardware interfaces are suddenly deactivated.

 

 

Usage

Make sure to set up power-saving settings especially if you are using:

A MADRIX KEY [USB dongle]
MIDI controllers [via USB]
USB hardware interfaces [such as MADRIX NEO]
A notebook/laptop to run MADRIX

Additionally:

Make sure to change the USB power settings.
Especially for notebooks, we recommend to activate the High performance power plan.
