Question : mbp mid 2010 upgrade for logic pro x
hi every one.
i have been struggling with my mbp mid 2010 ( 2.4 ghz i5 8gb ram) and logic pro x for a while, to the point that i haven't recorded for a while.
i am having a pop up windows telling me that i dont have enough what so either while not having that many tracks. usually about 10. but mainly lots of lagging while recoding instruments, which makes the experience almost impossible. i know my system is quite old. only usb2 and firewire, which both are quite slow compare to today specs.
also one need to know that i do video editing on premiere pro, but use an external drive for storing the files. it works just about.
i was looking into upgrading the hd for ssd and maybe swap the optical drive with my hd of 1t (a hybrid st1000lm014-1ej164), or adding a second ssd? and taking advantage of the bus speed which i don't think i can achieve with the usb2 or firewire. tell me if i am wrong!
here my questions.
what is the best setup. system on ssd and data on the hybrid? or system on the hybrid and data on ssd? or should i benefit from 2 ssd. i had in mind 2 crucial mx500 500g which are reasonably priced.
where do i put my plugins? on system or data. i use mainly bfd2 (which has a 250gb of recorded sound/sample), and native instrument guitar rig 5.
Logic Pro X, OS X Yosemite (10.10.5)
