    Smile Sample Storage

    Sure it's been hashed out many times before but do many of you use external sata drives for say the VSL SE library?
    I've got firewire available and was thinking about putting that library on a new fire wire drive.

    Any suggestions for a drive and brand?

    Thanks

    I have an eSata I built myself, not running VSL per se, though I have several other DFD libs on it (KH, EWSO) and get decent performance. I'm away from my setup at the moment and can't recall any numbers for voices, unfortunately.

    I built it from:
    -Thermaltake eSata/USB2.0 enclosure with active cooling (simply wonderful and surprisingly dead silent)
    and
    -Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM drive

    Cheap, and I can switch out the drive later if I want.

    Thanks for the info.
    So, you think external is the way to go?
    I don't have to take my drives out of the studio ever so that's not a concern for me.

    You are right Jon, solid state drives are the future. The industry is moving to it, slowly but surely.
