However, again.. my MMS seems to run out of usable memory before it runs out of CPU doing what I do... (I'm thinking about upgrading my Logic MMS to 16 GB now.. if i can find a suitable set of mem chips for the right price..) but your experiences may differ depending on your use and method of recording in Logic.
I have recently tried noding it with my other MMS that i just purchased (without any tech issues I might add) but honestly, I haven't got to the point of pushing either of them hard enough to see what would happen. I'll probably get around to doing that with the next project or so, I am planning to do which will require, from what i understand... around 35+ instances of Kontakt along with quite a few FX plugins so it should be interesting, to see what noding it up does to take the load off the primary MMS. I'll post up my experiences here, when/if I get around to doing that...
Hope this helps...
Under Preferences/Audio and look at the lower half of the pref window. By default it is set to 'auto'

I don't understand that statement. I've never heard of "sequential reads" or "random reads". There's only one way to access a HD, or a SSD. So I'm not sure what the person who made that statement meant, but in itself, it does not mean anything.
