    Best way to install and organise Spectrasonics libraries

    I'm just about to load all three Spectrasonics products on a new Win 7 exclusive DAW machine that has two 1 Tb HDD's.

    Is it still best practice to install the Apps in HDD #1 and the libraries in a partition in HDD #2? And data in another partition in HDD#2?

    With the speed of HDD access these days does it matter where the library goes?

    I would do a geek bench or other test on both your internal and external disks to see the raw performance difference first. Normally you would install the vst dll on your main drive and then install the content on the external. If you have esata or usb3 drives, I would think the performance would be better but question if USB 2 is not a good idea.

    The PC is a desktop model that has two identical internal SATA drives - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12's. So their performance won't differ.

    Yes, it can make a difference. Definitely install your sequencer, plug-ins etc. on your main drive and samples and instrument files on drive 2. This has been, and continues to be, S.O.P. This approach is standard with other libraries as well. HTH.
    Cubase 7.0.3, Wavelab 7.1, Omnisphere, Trilian, Stylus RMX, Symphobia 1 & 2 , all Spitfire libraries, LASS 2, Requiem Pro, Voxos, Superior Drummer 2, Komplete 8, Cinematic Guitars, most EW libraries, Chris Hein Horns, Guitar & Bass, 2.8 GHz Mac Pro, 18 GB RAM, OS 10.6.8, RME Multiface II + HDSP PCIe
