I have LP-16 ( Player) .so I would like to ask if it is better to use SSD disk with this player or traditional portable HDD or efficient USB Thumb ?
Thank you.18th January 2016 at 11:55 #26738
For playback almost every drive should be ok.
May worth to consider to use SSD/USB stick because those drives have no moving parts.
For the best performance please update the firmware on your LP-16 then format the USB drive with LP-16 before you starting to use first time.12th July 2016 at 22:37 #27225
I tried a Sandisk Ultra fit USB 3.0 64Go Thumb. No glitches, but it heats a lot. Any risk of damaging the LP-16 ?13th July 2016 at 09:45 #27226
No don’t worries about this.
As I know correctly it heats around 50°C right?
We also use that drive one the MusikMesse I was also surprised how hot the drive.13th July 2016 at 19:30 #27232
Thanks for your reply
I read somewhere it could heat unttil 69°C by through USB 3.0 ports, and could damage the ports.
With USB 2.0 ports (can you confirm it is a USB 2.0 port on the LP-16 ?), the temperature will be lower as the transfer speed will be also lower.
I think here it is about 50-55°C. Do you have an idea from which temperature, this would damage the LP-16 USB port ?14th July 2016 at 15:38 #27233
Yes I can confirm all Cymatic Audio device using USB 2.0 port.
I made a test, in my test case the Sandisk drive heat up to 50°C.
I talked with our HW engineer he can confirm even 70°C cannot be a problem for the USB port on any Cymatic Audio device15th July 2016 at 10:41 #27234
A huge thank you for your reply. You made my day !6th January 2017 at 01:06 #27783
Any recommendations for minimum writing speed on usb sticks used for play back on Utrack24 with loads of tracks? 🙂6th January 2017 at 11:12 #27787
For playback purpose the writing speed does not make any difference.
If you want to use only for playback the writing speed have impact only the transferring time where you export the song from your PC to your USB drive.
The playback not that sensitive for the USB medium type so you can use any kind of USB2.0; USB3.0 drives.6th January 2017 at 14:40 #27790
Thank you for the quick answer!
I actually ment reading speed, and not writing speed as I wrote 😳
So It should work with reading speeds around 130 mbps? It’s really smart with the very small usb drives but their reading speed is only around 130 mbps so if that’s not enough the smart part goes off 😉6th January 2017 at 14:42 #27791
That is much more than enough6th January 2017 at 16:05 #27794
Just great 😉
