Default When is a RAID really a RAID? Will this increase track count?

It makes sense that a RAID would be faster than a single drive, since you can stripe across multiple drives to divide the access time up between them. What if you just record different tracks on different drives, sort of in the round-robin method described in PTLE? Wouldn't this basically accomplish the same thing as a true RAID without the increased probability of data loss that RAID brings? Has anybody got any experience with this method?

Default Re: When is a RAID really a RAID? Will this increase track count?

Well, for the 001, a RAID isn't required at all. You'll get the full boat 24 track count on a single, fast ATA drive.

The bandwidth requirements for 24 tracks of audio aren't really a challenge for today's drives. A single 7200RPM ATA disk will be more than enough to do the job.

A RAID is different than round-robin allocation. In a RAID the drives are striped together and work as one single virtual disk drive.
