    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hey

    I have just bought a new laptop and have something like a 250GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. I run my OS from the SSD and using the HDD for various files, photos, etc. Now im not sure what to have my FL on? If I have it on my SSD does that also mean I must have all my drum samples, vsts etc on it too? As that wouldnt fit! What wouuld be best?

    Depends a bit on how content you're with loading times and all.
    Not sure how it works with FL. I have Reason on my SSD and all the samples on an SSD as well.
    Loading times from and to an ssd will be faster. But, what is the bottleneck is the question :P
    If no one else answers this post, I'd say test it out. Install it , test it, see if you can put samples and vsts on both the hdd and ssd, check the difference, maybe uninstall FL and install it on the other drive.

    HDD user here, 2TB total.
    I'd recommend ssds if you aren't concerned with storage space for your stuff and need the speed boost.

    I doubt whether or not FL itself resides on the SSD matters very much. It hasn't got anything to do with where your project files load up from.
