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...

p.s. in other words, if you think someone's got a copy of your keys, change the locks! if they have managed to get admin access to your router and add a new MAC address, just deleting it isn't going to keep them out...

on some modem/routers access control by MAC addresses is only available for wireless connections... each network interface usually has an unique MAC address, however spoofing is possible on a lot of hardware... so if someone has gained access to your router, maybe they know your MAC addresses anyway...

I have looked through the supplied documentation and can't find any information about wether it has a sleep mode or not. Sorry, I'm not that comp tech savy. Is sleep mode something the HD does by itself of does the comp tell the HD to go to sleep? Not sure where to look for this one. does your slow...

the quality of the interfaces in your computer and external drives can make a big difference... also, although USB2 has a faster superficial spec than FW400, the USB protocol has more inherent overheads than FW, so in practice (depending on your interfaces and access patterns) FW400 tends be at leas...

hey

when you say "same thing happens with the FW400 interface", are you talking about the same HD?

most obvious thing that springs to mind is that you are waiting for your external HD to spin up from sleep mode...

also, have you tested the drive with some kinda diagnostics program?

i think the only way to do this is to have a follow action group containing copies of the same clip, but with different length settings in each clip...

do you read your mail online or offline? Apple Mail also has a very good trainable spam filter... of course if you can avoid having to download all the crap to your computer in the first place, even better... if you have to keep the address, probably the best you can do is to have the mail directed ...

i haven't personally done any tests, as i don't currently have a hard drive bandwidth problem (and if things ever got to that stage i'd get faster drives), but i think the crucial point is that how you are using your computer, and the pattern of HD access by your system and applications is absolutel...
