I have a pretty simple question regarding the distribution of software, samples and VST's on a computer system.
Generally in the past I've had a primary drive and two other drives for storage and sample streaming. I know it's best to have this separation between one drive housing your OS and the other housing your audio.
My question is though, when using software synths, FX plugins, multitrack recording and sequencing software, is it best to have these on a secondary drive or is it generally fine to have them on your primary, the same drive as your OS?
I've gotten mixed answers from this question in the past. Some say it's fine, others say you should home nothing on your primary EXCEPT your OS.
My configuration is usually one raptor as primary, one for sample libraries and a SATA for storage and few other things.
Should I keep my applications, softsynths and plugs separate from my primary drive or will I encounter little performance difference?
