With the size of the sample libraries getting bigger, what size Hard Drive are people using for Giga? The Tascam site recommends you don\'t use a drive bigger than 60-80GB. I am running out of space on my current 60GB drive and don\'t think I can add another internal drive (I may be but am unsure). Is anyone using 120GB or bigger drives for samples?
Is anyone using external Firewire drives for samples.
I tihknk you\'ll find a lot of people using larger drives than 80 GB these days, and although firewire is becoming more popular I think most people are still using SATA/PATA drives.
For myself, I am using 2 x 80 GB Western Digitals at the moment but that will definitely have to increase within the next 6 months or so...I can\'t really see to many issues anymore with the bigger drives as the seek times and read/write speeds are generally better than any drive in the 80 GB range from what I have seen.
Cn\'t answer much about firewire though sorry...
