........3) Did your friend tell you that you needed a new internal drive, or just add an external? (You really want an external, but there is a follow up question below.)
I currently do a very limited amount of recording, but do mix on a fairly regular basis recordings from our church worship services. These are initially recorded to an Alesis HD24 which I then import to my 2nd internal hard drive dedicated for Pro Tools sessions (on an older PowerMac G4 tower using Mbox 2 Mini). Should I be using an external firewire drive for my PT sessions instead of the internal drive? If so, any idea why that is the preferred option?Thanks.
I looked at a few desktops recently, and I found one that was reasonably priced. However, I dont know if its a wise buy. Its a HP desktop w/ an AMD Phenom X4 9550 Quad-Core Processor with 6GB memory and 640GB Hard drive. It runs Windows Vista with SP1 and NVIDIA 9100GS 256MB graphics. I need to know if this pc would run Pro Tools effectively by itself or would I still need to purchase another drive such as a Glyph?
