I am running a MacPro with OSX10.7.5 with Cubase 7.5.2 and a bunch of third party VST Plug-ins. I have a UAD 2 Quad Card installed.
I am setting up my corner studio with Halion 5, Komplete 9 Ultimate, and Arturia V Instrument package. I imagine obtaining more Plug-ins and VST Instruments in the future.
My question is… What is the best set up plan so I am not filling my OSX HDD and want the best performance when it comes to loading the large libraries during production. Komplete 9 Ultimate is almost 400GB alone! I have two 1TB 7200 RPM HDDs along with my OSX 500TB HDD. I am considering the purchase of a 500GB SSD to replace my OSX HDD.
Anyone have suggestions about what to purchase, how to organize the libraries and Plug-ins, and if it makes sense to have all plug-ins, libraries and other software separate from the OSX???
