Small Internal SSD w/ external HD vs. Large Internal SSD

I always hear that when producing music, it's a good idea to keep your system stuff and applications on your internal drive, and your sample library on an external. But if all you have is a firewire input (no sata, no thunderbolt) is it really gonna be faster than simply loading the samples from you...

ease of use? Operator or FM8

Which FM softsynth would be a better tool for someone new to synthesis? Which would help them gain a better grasp of fm synthesis more quickly and give them more aid in the learning process?

3 native instruments synths vs 3 u-he synths

Let's say i can either buy... Massive, Absynth & FM8 or... Zebra, Ace & Diva And I can't mix and match synths from the 2 groups. How do these groups of instruments compare to each other as bundles? - taken together, which group of synths has a steeper learning curve? - which group is easier to learn...

fully customizing the sidebar in ableton 9

I want to remove the menus on the sidebar that seem unremovable (such as packs, max for live, sounds menu, drums menu, user library menu, etc.) When I right click those items, I'm not given the option to remove from sidebar. Is there a more techy way i could remove them? Something I can delete in th...

Re: using repitch mode with simple delay; sync rather than time

You could do the following: 1. Set project tempo to something nice and round (e.g. 120 bpm) 2. Automate the time parameter to the right values (e.g. using http://www.thewhippinpost.co.uk/tools/delay-time-calculator.htm ) 3. Freeze the track and copy the audio.

But I'd like to be able to keep the delay in sync while using this mode, and in a way that's easier and more pre...
