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 🙂13th December 2016 at 11:51 #27691LaszloKeymaster
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 series22nd December 2016 at 23:48 #27717RustyParticipant

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.
