My answer to lilpyro was about using standard flashdrives for playback, not recording.[/quote]

Understood. My post was specifically attempting to explain the differences between playback and recording, because understanding those differences is the key to understanding why Flash drives are problematic for recording, which is the occasional extreme write latency issue. Flash drives do not have this latency issue when reading, which is why I agreed with your statement that they should be fine for playback. And I also agree with Laszlo that it’s always best to test before the live gig. Sorry if I misspoke.
