What type of External Hard Drive should be used with Logic to ensure ability to record 8 tracks at a time...? I just purchased from the Apple Refurb store a 2.6Ghz 2012 Mac Mini with 1TB hard drive and 4GB RAM and want to put Logic Pro on the internal 2.5" 5400 RPM drive and write the tracks to an external drive over USB 3.0 to a 7200 RPM, 64MB cache, 3.5" drive. I will get an 8GBÂ DDR3-1600 MHz SODIMM PC3-12800 Â CL9 (or should it be lower?) and get the machine to 10GB RAM (any recommended specs for the RAM?) I see G.SKILL SQ Series 8GB DDR3 1600MHz CL11 SODIMM Memory (F3-1600C11S-8GSQ) for $50 at Canada Computers and wondering if there is something wrong with this as the price is low...? Will this work writing 8 tracks at once...? Â Anyone try this regularly...? I have read how an external drive would never write as fast as an internal drive because of the translator software on the external drive's controller to convert USB3.0 signals to hard drive IO language (i.e. data/info). Should I have purchased the 2.3GHz Mac Mini Server version that has two internal 5400 RPM drives to write the data at that speed instead to ensure 8 tracks at a time can get written successfully to the drive without "Disk Too Slow" errors (or whatever the exact error message is)... Thanks for your advice!
