Red Robin Posted October 27, 2011 Share Posted October 27, 2011 I run Logic 9.1.5 on OS 10.6.8 on an i5 iMac with built-in SSD 256 GB and 1 TB internal. All my Applications and currently my substantial sample libraries are on the SSD which is fast filling up. Consequently it makes sense to move just the third-party (not Apple/Logic's own) sample libraries to an external drive. I have a 500 GB and also a 250 GB external, both 7200 LaCie FireWire 800 and they can be daisy-chained as they have two ports plus a FireWire 400 port. My iMac doesn't have a eSATA port and only one FireWire 800 port. I'm thinking of using the external 500 GB drive exclusively for Time Machine backup from my internal 1 TB drive only and using the external 250 GB drive exclusively for sample libraries (Omnisphere, etc). Should I connect the 250 GB drive first in line from the iMac? Or does it not matter? And when using my portable 100 GB drive to transport music files to and from home/studio, I can connect that via a FireWire 400 cable to either of the 500 GB and 250 GB external drives - Does it matter which (assuming I can branch off one HD in the chain)? The next question is how to setup Logic to 'see' the new external location of a sample library. Something about using an alias somewhere?
