Re: crackly external hard drive

Are they all noisy when you plug them into the USB port? Mine makes a whirry noise like a helicopter taking off, and because I keep my samples on it, each time I just want to "audition" a sample in live, I get the whirring noise. I also have to wait a second for it. does the drive have a fan in it?...

The main benefit is the bigger screen. I thought I would love to be using 2 screens, but only ever use the big main one now.... i hardly use my macbook screen at all. Which leads me to my question. How in hells teeth do I run my macbook in clamshell mode? I have tried before and failed. (Carlv) Thi...

Although I thought cross talk was different to ground loop problems. I am entirely happy to stand corrected on this one if need be mate, but I was of the opinion that the ground/earth was one of the more common causes of cross-talk. The lift itself simply prevents the current from other devices tra...

just thought i'd add that it's access/seek times and sustained throughput that really matter when working with multiple tracks of audio.... one track of 16 bit/44.1kHz audio: = 16 x 44.1 x 1000 = 705600 bits per second = .0882 megabytes per second so this means 100 tracks of 16/44.1 audio requires s...

Just to dredge up an old thread with a little bit of new information: Since starting this journey with a Corsair Voyager GT 4GB drive, I have since done a little more research and found that the Lexar JumpDrive Lightning 4GB is of comparable price, and seems to perform significantly faster on my ow...

i've got the same problem: when my girlfriend types on her computer (she's quite a fast 1.5 finger typist) in our upstairs office/studio (wooden floorboards) it sounds like a small herd of pygmy hippos downstairs... sorry i'm not really being much help, but i guess you need to isolate your synth sta...

as the thread suggests, USB sticks vary widely in read/write speeds... i think the interface in the stick is the main issue (plus how well it works with the USB interface in your computer)... like anything, you gotta do your research... worth remembering that flash drives do wear out, quicker if you...
