large sample files / external disk?

rosea.grammostola
Hi,

Some sample libraries are taking up to 20GB of harddisk space. Is there
a way to put them on external disk and still getting good results when
using them in a sampler (linuxsampler)? Which type of hard disk is good
for it?

Regards,

\r

Since that is almost 'read only', a solid state drive (SSD) is the way to go.
