Audio software (apps) -- On the "main" HD or on "Audio" HD?

Discussion in 'Pro Audio' started by darrelldklein, Apr 2, 2005.

  1. Sorry if this has been discussed. I looked for an answer in previous
    discussions, but did not find it.

    I recently added a second hard drive to my PC, controlled by a separate
    card. When I did this, I left the software audio recording and editing
    applications where they were: on the original hard drive.

    I have used the PC exclusively (up 'til now, anyway) for editing audio
    and burning CDs. I record to ADAT, and import the files digitally into
    the PC.

    Now I have a chance to upgrade one of my audio applications. My
    question is whether I should leave the audio recording and editing apps
    on the original hard drive or move them to the second drive, which is
    where the audio files are written to.

    How do you guys with experience using two hard drives have your PCs set
    up?

    Thanks.

  2. put your apps on the system drive, and the data on the second drive.
    then backup your data to the third drive :)

  4. There's no point in separating program code and operating system.
    They are inextricably entwined.
