Hello! If you're aware, you can use the "renice" command in terminal (or a 3rd party app) to increase the system priority of an app. Or you can start it up from the terminal using the nice command AFAIK. Is there an easy way to make an app start up like that? Can I make the equivalent of a DOS batch file (yeah, I'm old skool PC) so I can run an icon to open the app already "nice"ed? Or a one-click applescript job or something similar? BTW This is to increase the priority of my music app, Ableton Live, to about say -12 to guarantee less likelihood of dropouts etc when I have other apps open. Currently I do it with a 3rd party app, but it's a little tiresome opening the other app, scrolling to find it, and then choosing it, and setting the value every time. I might be imagining it, but this DOES seem to help. Could be imagining it, but an occasional odd rare dropout can ruin an finally otherwise perfect take!
