Quick DAW/SOFTSAMPLER Hard Drive Query.

Hi Everyone...

Is this overkill for a Macbook based ITB system?

- Internal drive for OSX and APPS

- External FW drive for DAW AUDIO FILES

- 2nd External FW drive for SOFT SAMPLER LIBRARY

Or can the latter 2 drives be consolidated into 1 external???


Cheers

Unless you intend having hundreds of tracks, I would think one external is fine.
Even a large internal with seperate partitions should be fine (i think the internal buss is still faster)
