szlafarski Posted February 3, 2013 Share Posted February 3, 2013 Hey guys, So I'm fortunate enough to have come into an opportunity to move my composing workstation out of my bedroom and into a proper studio. I'm ditching my Apogee Duet, getting a new PreSonus 1818VSL, control surface, proper environment etc. One thing I want to do is increase the performance of the computer itself. I'm going to have instruments at my disposal, such as multi track drum recording. I already have 24gb of RAM which does wonders with running my samples for composing work, however I want to boost anything I can in order to set myself up properly. I currently have three internal drives on my 2010 Mac Pro - two Seagate's at 2TB each, 7200 and the stock WD 1TB drive. I have the OS and programs running off one Seagate unit, all of my samples running off another Seagate, a backup of everything on the WD and also a Seagate GoFlex USB2.0 external running a backup of everything Logic related. I'm going to be doing more audio-heavy work at this new studio. I also want to try and add a little bit of extra muscle for sample work. I've been contemplating replacing some of the HDD's with SSD's. I understand that the performance of sample playback is especially good on SSD's. Is there a way I can boost my performance with what I already have? Should I try running certain things off other drives? Should I upgrade the GoFLex to Firewire? Will SSD's help me in the long run? Any and all input is much appreciated. Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
