Hi guys,

Basically i bought a new Macbook and i might be stuck with it and the internal hard drive i feel will not be big enough to store all audio files from Logic and then all audio files from plugins i wish to download for example sylenth1. I just wanted to know what are my option here, it doesn't seem like trying to replace the SSD card inside is a good idea and i was thinking could i download any plugins and save all the audio files that come with it to an external hard drive? 

Surely people must of had this problem before where they run out of space on there hard drive because of their excessive collection of audio files and have to find ways to increase there storage.

Your help would be massively appreciated guys

Many thanks
Tom

If you know how to store, browse and open files, photos, documents and what not, I think you'll find it just as easy. Most, if not all plugins let you open/load patches and samples by browsing for them. So it would make little difference as to where they are actually stored. Obviously it could affect performance in read/write speeds, but there shouldn't be any limitations as to where you store your samples.

Or am I completely misunderstanding your question here? Embarrassed
