Lenovo Legion Windows 11 22H2 ISO


Thanks @rezpower would appreciate that.

Installed all my software and the pops and latency are still there :(

The high culprits:
Wdff01000.sys is a catch all for many things from my reading
tcpip.sys
ntoskml.exe

etc

Here are the original power plans from lenovo. Download the compressed folder and put the "Lenovo" folder inside on C:
If you put it elsewhere you need to change the path to the commands listed bellow. Now open cmd as admin and enter all
the commands listed here:

powercfg -import "C:\Lenovo\Quiet_Mode.pow" 16edbccd-dee9-4ec4-ace5-2f0b5f2a8975
powercfg /import "C:\Lenovo\Performance_Mode.pow" 52521609-efc9-4268-b9ba-67dea73f18b2
powercfg /import "C:\Lenovo\Balance_Mode.pow" 85d583c5-cf2e-4197-80fd-3789a227a72c
DISM.exe /online /Add-ProvisioningPackage /PackagePath:"C:\Lenovo\LenovoGamingPPM025.ppkg"

powercfg -SETACTIVE 85d583c5-cf2e-4197-80fd-3789a227a72c
powercfg /setacvalueindex 85d583c5-cf2e-4197-80fd-3789a227a72c 0012ee47-9041-4b5d-9b77-535fba8b1442 0b2d69d7-a2a1-449c-9680-f91c70521c60 2

Now when you open lenovo toolkit or vintage you have the default power profiles.

Did you set your gpu to hybrid-igpu? You need to do that and then test with your audio software. Forget about latency monitor for now.
It may show spikes but still have no effect on audio.
Also don't forget to download the other profile I posted earlier (Audio.rar) and use that when testing.

Thanks @rezpower! I have about 30 min in the am tomorrow to install this. I am exhausted. BTW I test my dj app the pops are still there. Here's the rub I even tested without connecting the mixer. I could still hear the pops on the speakers of the pc. Lost so many hours on this and tomorrow hopefully no one notices.

Best of luck for tomorrow. It should not take more then 5 minutes to do what I told you and if done it's very probable that there will be no pops .
Just don't forget to set graphic settings to Hybrid_iGpu in the legion toolkit app and to use the audio power plan I posted.

Hi cloves2023,

Are you relying on your internal Realtek sound card? If so, you need a real professional sound card/interface. The Realtek can't handle real time playback with your software. You need a card with an ASIO driver. You are walking the tightrope without a net.

Kind regards,

tecknot

@rezpower not sure if the audio import worked. Command said imported.

So I just a pioneer DJM-s9 mixer. I know it has a built in sound card. But I run my software seratoDJ or VirtualDJ. I know the DJM uses ASIO driver and is shows in the audio input section of the device driver.

No you don't need vintage (toolkit is vintage replacement).
The audio profile you imported should be loaded from windows power management.
Go to control panel, then choose "hardware and sound" and then "Power options". There you can choose the audio profile you imported.

Hi cloves2023,

Cool deal. Have you done any tweaks to you laptop? You might want to read up on doing so for audio (after you sort out your drivers). Also, disable HDMI audio.

Kind regards,

This is exactly what I think and said earlier. For professional audio editing/recording/playback it's best to have an external audio device. The onboard sound card will never be enough.

Let us know if things got any better :)

This is what he is asking you to disable. (considering you have only igpu this is not necessary) but no harm in doing it!

Hi cloves2023,

One thing I remembered... Check to make sure that all buffers are set the same on your mixer and Windows. That is, check your sample rate and bit depth are the same throughout too. Also, well I am at it, make sure Enable audio enhancements is disabled.

I'm not at my audio rig, but here are the settings in Windows:

Hi all,

First, wanted to say thank you to everyone for trying to help me sort on the sound audio issue, especially since it was ninth hour. I tested the laptop on my speakers at home b4 the event and the pops were still present. Thinking that might be the case, I ended up pretty much last minute copying my files and music and apps I needed to my windows 10 2016 Lenovo Y700 laptop. My old system was able to handle the show including a new piece of lighting software I was running. I did notice a hair of a lag but no distorted audio. Sunday I pretty much rested as this was a high stress ordeal lol.

I did a bunch of tweaks to the system too before the event. Now I need to figure out if the root cause has something to do with Windows 11 and the Pioneer mixer. Of note, I only upgraded to windows 11 and new laptop after reading that one of my software's SeratoDJ Pro and the mixer was indeed windows 11 compatible. The DJM-s9 has a built in audio card. When I turn on the mixer is populates in the device manager.

Windows 11 was fully optimized. @rezpower I have to figure out if there is a difference in using instruments vs a soundcard in Windows 11. I know you mentioned a VST instruments but I am not sure if and how that differences from a mixer (mine has 2 Built-in USB soundcards)

So after trying a ton of things I have finally found the problem. It was referenced here in this microsoft post by Nøströmo180924609. He mentions deactivate the network card (Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller) in the device manager. This literally stopped the popping on my audio tracks. A reminder, I am using a usb mixer and ASIO drivers on Windows 11. Unreal. I will probably never ever be able to listen to that Daft Punk - One more time song again. It's literally bled my ear and its the only song that its easy to hear the pops while playing back.

Weird, probably some electronic noise that passed through the speakers. If you don't use the network card (only connect wirelessly), just keep it disabled.
