Re: Advice on Setup - Using Samples, System Performance etc

Thanks for all the help

I'm going to look at getting more RAM (will any 1600 MHz DDR3 be OK or are there brands to avoid?), better hard drive(s), and hopefully upgrade at some point to an i7.

Re: Advice on Setup - Using Samples, System Performance etc

Are Samsung 850s not just plug and go externals? I'd prob have to go with an SSD LaCie Thunderbolt if so.

Re: Advice on Setup - Using Samples, System Performance etc

Yeah I'm using the adapter to go from FW to Thunderbolt. Might it run smoother through USB3?

Any recommendations on a Thunderbolt drive to try?

Re: Advice on Setup - Using Samples, System Performance etc

I'm guessing updating from an i5 to i7 isn't a simple process, and more just buy a new mac? I'm definitely going to be getting more RAM in the 4 slots I have (I've got 2x 4GB at the moment)

Re: PT10 / Kontakt 5 & Albion Clicking/Popping

I'm relatively new to the technical side of Macs and don't really know what all these drives are. I basically need a new internal drive, and possibly a new external SSD drive for the library?

Re: PT10 / Kontakt 5 & Albion Clicking/Popping

Also just noticed while playing something I've recorded, a really loud single note plays as if to say "huge error" then a mish-mash of sound until it sorts itself out

Mbox 3 CRACKLE and FIZZ

Yesterday my Mbox 3 starting making the worst noise. It sounds like crackling combined with a bee in a can; to me it sounds like something is fried, as it gets gradually worse from starting up.

When I try plugging a RODE NT1-A into my Mbox I just can't seem to get sound out of it no matter what I do. I try the 48V Phantom Power (which is what it requires) and nothing happens.
