xpander Posted May 23, 2010 Share Posted May 23, 2010 I am trying to figure out the best possible way to use Kyma with one of the latest iMacs. I'm not using the newest Pacarana hardware. I'm using the dated (yet extremely powerful) Capybara 320 with additional DSP cards. My problem at the moment is trying to figure out how to use the iMac's one FireWire 800 port. It's important to me to have a second drive to record to when using Kyma. This wouldn't normally be a problem when using a tower, but an iMac is a little trickier. I certainly don't want to daisy-chain a FW HD and the Capybara on the same bus. So what I was wondering was: how practical would it be to use an external drive connected via the ethernet port? If I'm not mistaken, I think that there are some that rotate at 7200rpm. But I've never even thought about it until now. I have zero experience using an ethernet drive in my studio. Do any of you have any experience using an external drive like this? I would love to hear any advise you might have for me... Thanks. - xpander Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
