Good Hard Drive? Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Hey yall.

Been using a crossfire hard drive for the past few years, and its been really good. Problem is it is now full! its 250 gb....

I now want to get a 500gb or 1tb drive, and I want a good sturdy reliable one, preferably one that is used professionaly in music ....

I've found this one which I know is used in a lot of studios:

But that is a bit too expensive....

Any advice would be appreciated.

Im using a mac.

Thanks.

If your Crossfire hd has been "really good" then the answer is in your statement? Big Grin

My Samsung Story Station has been solid - highly recommended.

I would stay clear of the Seagate Expansion - mine unfortunately did develop the click of death.

ever considered a RAID (stripe) setup?

then you can buy for exaplme 4 HDs of 250GB and assemble them to a (very fast) ultimate HD of1TB, only catch is if one of them dies, all is lost. So backup etc blabla uknow, (maybe an extra mirror-RAID?) if this is like Chinese to you me too lazy, google it

but very high performance && very cheap! Big Grin
(and you'll need a bit of "PC-fu"...)

You need a RAID-controller off course (hardzare) and your OS has to support it, but I think OSx won't be a problem, but I can't confirm.

their also exist 'SSD's (solid State Disk) like a HD, but No magnetic spinning disks anymore, just ultra-fast flash mem and ultra-expensive.

I dont think there is a company that makes optimized HD's for audio-production.
but I could be wrong off course.. Confused ..

I advice RAID, I use it and it's very, very fast! I use a HD for my OS, a HD for my apps and this RAID-setup for my projects.

edit: with this RAID, I feel like my Cubase Projects load double as fast the least, and other 'samplers' (eg:NI akoustik piano with <huge> kits) load comfortably fast(in comparison to the same sytem with 1 HD). excuse me english, i'm to lazy to press backspace
