Re: Best drive option
Micro sd, USB flash drives, etc are good for portable or temporary storage but do not have the capacity of external hard drives.
I just got a new laptop, that will be used for "on site" recordings (among other things). It has a 250GB SSD drive (and M2 drive). I installed Sonar on the SSD but have an external USB 3.0 2TB hard drive that I will use for projects when I record. I'm not planning on doing any audio mixing, etc - just recording. I'll transfer the project(s) to my DAW desktop for any processing. It will get "tested" later this month with an on-site and again in September.
