  • SSD & VSL

    Hi, Simple question to the sample streaming process : In which blocksize does VSL read the samples from the mass storage drive, in 64 kB or 128 kB ? Thanx, Adorno

  • I will guess that it will depends of the setting in the Directory manager ??

    MacBook Pro M3 MAX 128 GB 8TB - 2 x 48" screen --- Logic Pro --- Mir Pro 3D --- Most of the VI libs, a few Synch... libs --- Quite a few Kontakt libs --- CS80 fanatic
  • Most of the time,it will request 64kB blocks.

  • Hi Martin,

    thanks for the info! So is it better to have a high IOPS for random 64kB read or a high general read rate?



  • I really cannot say, since I haven't had first hand experiences with more than a couple of SSD's. Currently, the Crucial m4 offering looks good to me. I know Paul is using one in his Macbook Pro, and is having great results with lots of VI's.
