This is my first self-build on a computer (still waiting for it to arrive), and I have also ordered Cubase 7. Does anyone have any advice on the best way to divide up programmes and third-party VSTs between the Solid-State hard drive and the standard one? I’d thought of using the SSD for Windows and Cubase, and putting third-party VSTs on the standard drive. If I store my projects on the standard drive (while I’m still working on them) will this slow things down? Also, would the same apply to VSTs if they are on a separate drive to Cubase? With only 120GB on the SSD it’s going to fill up pretty quickly!
