my 10,000 rpm hard drive

my 10,000 rpm hard drive

I'm getting a 10,000 rpm hard drive with 150 or 250 gb.

should I use the faster hard drive for my vista installation or should I install vista on the 7200 rpm 500 gb hard drive and use the faster drive for my recordings?

faster drive for recordings. although i'm only using 7200 drives, running up to 60-70 tracks.
use the 7200 for system and programms but split it up with partitions.
working great for me...


btw, think this thread should go to Music Computers...

damn thats fast

IMHO you don't need the 1k RPM anymore.
Get any Western Digital AAKS 7.200 RPM.
It's plenty fast for most studios.

Put your OS on there... you won't believe how fast everything starts up and loads! And a 7200 rpm HD will still do plenty of tracks at a time, unless you're individually micing a large orchestra...

the daw and OS on the same drive
and recorded material goes on the other hard drive





I think you would be fine with one hard drive

and the other for storage

unless your trying to run hundreds of tracks
I dont know about the whole vst thing so...

one hard drive will work fine on most modern computers

Here for the gear
 

what you need is 6 10,000 rpm drives, 5 for a raid 5 configuration and 1 for your OS

I have an extremely beefy PC - and a 10k raptor as my OS drive.

The difference in "speed and performance" is not even noticeable - it probably is faster (on paper at least, if nothing else), but you're not going to sit around and constantly be like "omg, this is sooo fast" - in fact, you'll likely forget its even supposed to be a faster drive.

If you want real upgrade, go SSD - THAT will make a difference, and have you smiling. Or, if you're stupid rich, get one of those iO drives or whatever that run off of PCI-e slots. They almost quadruple the speed of SSD's!

That being said - put your OS's on the 10k - and record to the 7200.

Really? I've noticed a huge improvement... especially with iTunes!

You need at least 3 drives for a RAID-5 configuration. 5 drives in a RAID-5 setup for DAW might be overkill. And if you're running PT I don't think it's supported.

RAID isn't supported officially - but I'm sure the post was a joke.

Gotta admit, it'd be pretty sweet - not as sweet as one of these though...

Exclusive Look at Fusion-io ioDrive - PCIe Solid State Introduction :: TweakTown

read through the review and look at how it just kills all the competition, and the RAID array is such overkill, it still doesn't stand a chance.
