Hi guys! (and gals).
I am looking into building a new machine, and I want to do some home-studio
recording with it. I was hoping that some of you could lend some of your
It sounds like SCSI is pretty-much a must in these situations, true? What
I was wondering about in particular is if anyone has tried anything like
this: Setting up a machine with an IDE hard drive to hold the system files
(say an ata 133 7200 rpm...) and a scsi disk for the dumping ground of the
audio programs such as ecasound, audacity or Ardour. I think I would put
the swap partition on the scsi drive as well. Obviously I am trying to
save a little money here, and I am trying to minimize latency. (I think
that somewhere around the $2K mark is my limit.) I am accustomed to using
multitrack analog units, but digital/computer recording is still extremely
new to me.
Any thoughts on this?
I would also love to hear any suggestions regarding what disks,
motherboards, cases and heatsinks people recommend and have had luck with.
