Additions and Changes


The Ubuntu Studio Controls package has been updated to provide an option to set the CPU governor to performance mode. This is important for recording. At the moment, the setting is not persistent, and needs to be reset at every reboot. BIOS settings may need to be changed for this setting to take effect.
