I'm planning on spending quite a bit of hard-earned money on a few giant sample libraries, and they would eat up hundreds and hundreds of GB total. My DAW already has two 200 GB filled, and two 80 GB halfway filled. When I purchase these new libraries, I would definitely have to get at least one or two new 200 GB drives. So, here's my problem:
I'm out of room for more drives in my DAW (already have 4 in it). I'm thinking of external solutions--maybe connect external drives by USB. Is that a good idea? Would that setup affect my music-making negatively? Any other alternatives?
