    i just bought a brand new LP 16.
    A good advice would be much appreciated.
    What drive should I buy?
    I mean, live Performance-wise , format 24*44.1.
    Would it be better to have a Few smaller ( 32 gb flash drives) with 1-2 backup copies to be on the safe side?
    As I understand, having read the posts , it is important that the usb drive should keep the speed of data transfer constant for long periods of time.
    Speaking of ssd , would new Samsung drives be prefferable? What would you suggest?

    Thank you for you answer, Rusty 🙂


    Hi Rusty,

    For playback purpose you can use any kind of drives which compatible with USB2.0 or higher.
    You don’t need to have any fancy drive. Even the USB2.0 drives perfectly enough (and it use less power then USB3.0)
    We have pretty good experiences for playback purpose with Sandisk Cruzer Fit; Verbatim Nano series


    Thank you.
    I followed your advice.
    So far it work ok.

    USB flash drive is a great handy tool to take your data on the go however while buying a pen drive you shuold care about the reading and writing speed for maximum performance. The latest USB 3.0 thumb drives are great. Here is an article that should help you to decide Fastest USB 3.0 Flash Drives

    yes u can buy USB2.0 drive.


    If you are using the device only for playback you don’t need to worry about the USB drive type.
    For recording we do recommend to use standard USB HDD, but for playback you can use a small USB stick too.
    We have a pretty good experiences with Sandisk Ultrafit and Sandisk Cuzerfit drives.

    Please make sure you have format the USB drives with your Cymatic device before you copy the content on the drive.


    Hi Laszlo

    I know some device have problem with some slot to handle key draw.. and from 2.0 to 3.1 something has changed;)

    mine is
    SanDisk Ultra Fit Unità Flash, USB 3.1

    all the best


    Our devices are compatible with USB 2.0-3.1 drives

    The SanDisk PRO gives you blistering speeds, offering 420 MB/s on the reading front and 380 MB/s on the writing end, which is 3–4x faster than what a standard USB 3.0 drive will offer. The sleek, aluminum casing is both super durable and very eye-catching, so you can bring it with you to your business meetings and look professional as well.

    The onboard AES, 128-bit file encryption gives you top-of-the-line security for your sensitive files. That USB 3.1 connection is also backward compatible with USB 2.0, so you won’t hit any snags with an older computer. SanDisk is so confident in the functionality of this little drive, that they’ve even backed it with a full lifetime warranty in case any issues befall it. Finally, there’s a file backup system you can download called RescuePRO that will let you recover lost files if needed.
