By you saying you use one of your SSD for virtual instruments, does that mean it is efficient to run and operate 3rd party plugins through this drive?

Thank you! As a beginner at recording music and making videos, this video was a lot more helpful than I expected! Thank you for explaining how you use multiple drives for different purposes! Sounds like I may want to start with a RAID drive to securely archive finished projects first, then expand as needed and as my financial situation allows.

bellmeisterful 28/09/2021 - 2:03 PM

Great info but it's very hard to find a video or even an article where someone's explaining how to use an SSD drive for booting and DAW only and using my old HDD drive for everything else. It's a 2 year old (barely ) pc and has one 2TB HDD drive. Fast for what it is, but having a smaller 500GB SSD drive for OS and Reaper will make it much faster and you can get one of the fastest SSD drives made for only $79 right now. Samsung 970 EVO PLUS.
So my quest continues to find a video or article that touches on this scenario which millions must be in as well.

what about for just samples packs?

great information Mitch thank you

For extra protection, how about if we make copies on USB drives and store them in different locations rather than use Raid Drives? I wouldn’t trust anything on the cloud, the web etc. Any suggestions?

Buy the La Cie Thunderbolt 2 Ruggedized Hard Disk and replace the 2-1/2" HD with a 2-1/2" SSD. This is the least expensive way to upgrade your old MacBook Pro with the Thunderbolt 2 port.

Hey Sweetwater,plz help me…if I order from India can get it

VoxTone2009 28/09/2021 - 2:03 PM

When buying solid state drives, the speed listed is often not true. Most none pro drives can handle fast speeds only for a shorter time and then slows down dramatically when they start to overheat. So if you really need speed, you need to find a drive that has fast speeds and don't overheat too much and the case needs to have a fan. Some have a decent heat sink and will do OK, but a fan will be much better. There are some cases you can buy and good drives, unfortunately they aren't sold together for some reason. And if they are close to good, they are very expensive. The mechanical drives (old drive tech) is much easier to find something good. Although, may want to think of a external unit with raid type 1at least if you want to actually make sure it is somewhat safely stored since it is common enough that a single drive fails. Online storage is another good backup plan since the good ones have multiple backups. I use Office 365 One Drive and it works good for me.

Interesting. This is directly related to what I do for a living. I have quite a few stories. Many involve the music business. If I'm ever hanging out at Sweetwater, I can tell you some good ones.

Tommy Von 28/09/2021 - 2:03 PM

Overall a great video but you left out one very important piece. All those backup methods have one fatal flaw. They are all in the same location. Doesn't matter how much you move them around in RAIDs or other drives. They are all still located in the same location and vulnerable to theft, or other accidents. I dont bother with anything other than an online cloud backup solution. Every night a service on my computer automatically backs up my external to the cloud. Its cheap and fool proof – its a scheduled task that will always run and i can recover wherever i am.

Kevin Griffin 28/09/2021 - 2:03 PM

Good timing as i'm looking for this exact info. Thanks for taking the time to produce and share this!

Rogala Photography 28/09/2021 - 2:03 PM

Sorry but I could only handle 50 seconds of the constant zoom in/out effect before stopping the video. I know all the effects in your editing software is cool…but they should be used SPARINGLY! Did an intern edit this video?

John Wade 28/09/2021 - 2:03 PM

Interesting video – I knew all of this however. I was more interested in trying to work out the model for those large Studio Monitor shells behind you;-)
Thanks for the video:-)

Mitch gallagher could tell me i need to buy a brand new computer for every single new song i want to record and i'd fuckin do it

Glad they mention backups, but you should backup all data, not just session data. I would never call a RAID a backup. RAID systems are made for either speed of accessing data or high availability. If a drive fails in some RAID systems, you can still access the data, but not a RAID 0. Also worth looking into would be an offsite backup. I personally use Backblaze and it works pretty well.

J EDWZ 28/09/2021 - 2:03 PM

Great breakdown! Very interesting

Very clear, informative and super helpful. Thanks!

Carlos Serrano 28/09/2021 - 2:03 PM

If you have a studio as a business get a NAS (Network Attached Storage) is a peace of mind and you have total control of your stuff and you can have for example 2 drives for your work and 2 for backup and you can have access to them anywhere in the world, just need internet.

Reply 28/09/2021 - 2:03 PM

Long story short – SSD as working drive and HDD for backup.
"I use mac mini, and there is no way to upgrade", that is funny, as well that as mac user recommended kind of non usual brands.
Good overview though, I like that Sweetwater are making those king of videos.

Happy new year sweetwater and all. Sweetwater is the best one place for everything i need.

Mr. Cox 28/09/2021 - 2:03 PM

One thing that is true about SSD is typically they have a certain lifespan as to how many read or write cycles can be done on them. Generally that being said, I imagine that this has been worked out in the last year. HP company support has confirmed this to me. One of the way that they’ve gotten around this is the drive actually has more data area available that’s not allocated use, until bad sectors show up. Happy new year’s to everyone at Sweetwater!

This is a very digestible video. You squeezed quite a bit of info into a 5 minute video. I would suggest to anyone interested in using some type of RAID for redundancy to do a fair amount of research on the subject before making a purchase. There are many types of RAID and not all provide redundancy. Additionally not all drives are optimized to be part of a RAID. You can look up shingled vs non shingled in RAID for more info on that.

MG does the best reviews

kuchesezik 28/09/2021 - 2:03 PM

misleading information here, hard drives are usually much more slow and unreliable than ssd’s, especially when it comes to robust and heavy use. they’re also significantly less expensive than ssd’s in gb/$ which influenced the acronym to “redundant array of inexpensive disks”, where “inexpensive” has now been modernized to “independent”.
another thing, besides in an allusion while mentioning raid 1, i don’t think i heard it mentioned that regularly backing up all important data to at least one other carrier is crucially important, unless you’re trying to restore gigabytes with tears of defeat.
also drive speed matters mostly for system and application startup, when transferring large files, playback while picking out samples, or loading a project with samples which from then on are loaded to the ram and accessed from there, thus it usually doesn’t make a difference how many drives are used and how they’re sorted, which is all to personal preference.
there’s a lot of information out there, i’m scratching my head as to how this got through unrevised.
