Sample libraries on external USB3 SSD


Recommended Posts

Is anyone experiencing problem with samples/libraries on external SSDs? I have no problems loading them, it is that some libraries (orchestral/sustains mainly) begin to sound funny with some notes that do not sustain, or just cut halfway .. Once I move them back to the main drive then everything is OK!
I am, by the way, experiencing this with Kontakt libraries, perhaps two or three libraries, with mainly sustain samples. I tried all the settings of "purge" in the Kontakt player, but the results were the same.
It seems strange, because once all samples are loaded in memory then the source should not matter, but apparently it does!

The HD is an external Samsung T7 (2 TB). Supposed to be quite fast!

Just thought of asking if anyone had the same problem.

I think this must be the problem. I am planning to buy a thunderbolt drive and format it to APFS. Too much trouble to format the existing one with much data on it.

Can anyone recommend a good, fast thunderbolt drive (around 2 TB)?

Thanks again for all the help
