I moved Dorico 3 from my i5 laptop with 8gigs of ram, to an i7 laptop with 16gigs of ram. The large orchestration sets now input much better. Still get a few hesitations, but way better In general.
The only real issue I had with this move is the i7 only has a 125gigs SSD,and the I5 had 250. So, I had no room for the 40gigs of gold symphonic play library except on the slower hard drive part. (5400 rpm I think)
I went and got a 64 gig flash drive ($14) Ultra speed sandisk on a C USB, and copied the 40 gigs of eastwest samples onto to it. Seems to work pretty well…
Can’t beat the price, but wondering how well this will hold up. Should I expect this to fail shortly?
