My experience with them has been that they are great for streaming samples
off disk, say for DFD. I did some benchmarks with that, and got better
performance out of a SSD with slower throughput than a much faster hard
drive (with a small buffer size), I suppose because it's not seeking all
over the map. I'm not sure about writing or recording audio streams; the
expensive ones are probably good, but I do know that the less expensive
solid state media are slow to write to.

Cheers,
Louis

Hi,

SSD disks seems to be fast and silent... but are they suitable for audio da=
ta, or is it better to just install your basesystem on it?

I know the masters of o=
penoctave.org
are using SSD for samples, at least. Other sounds on the =
Internet are that SSD is not perfect for audio (yet).

Regards,
