Dual SSD question
I am running Splat on a Lenovo Yoga 900 laptop (I7 processor, 16GB RAM, 512 SSD) and it's been smooth. I'm doing everything with soft-synths so am only "recording" when I freeze the tracks as I go. I'll get 5-6 tracks of soft synths composed then I'll go back and freeze one or two to free up CPU before I add more synth tracks. I repeat this until the song is composed and arranged. The most complicated projects have 40 tracks of audio and about 40-50 plugins running. When the composition is done all tracks are frozen so I have the CPU to handle mixing with plugins. My question is how might adding an external SSD or 7200 HDD make a difference in how efficient my setup is? Or is it needed? I've searched the forum but what I found was from 2014- I'm wondering if the technology has made dual drives as necessary if that makes sense.
I do own a Samsung external SSD (256GB) that I'm using to back up my projects to but I'm wondering if I should be using it for the audio files of my project as well. I also have another external 7200 rpm 1TB HDD that I use to backup my system weekly that could be utilized.
Sorry if I missed where this was covered recently in the forums!! Also, thanks in advance for your advice! This group is great!
