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 #27691
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

So far it work ok.

yes u can buy USB2.0 drive.23rd July 2019 at 14:16 #54834
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.24th June 2020 at 17:58 #105198micheleParticipant

Our devices are compatible with USB 2.0-3.1 drives19th December 2020 at 09:23 #127983bonnie shonaParticipant
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.
