LaCie Little Big Disk Quadra
What a beautiful thing. Bus powered, quiet, small, 1TB!!!, FW800, eSATA, of course USB2 and FW400. It makes my life so easy. Partition it with a lil fat 32 side for windows, just some straight gangster shit really. This one disk holds Drizzy's career in its entirety. in fact i could prolly hold 6 to 8 thousand Protools sessions on here if i compacted and removed the unused regions. The advantage of being able to go to any studio with some lil drive in my pocket and have access to EVERYTHING I need is unreal. That along with bigger more stable drives at home for backup and im good. I still remember my first 256 meg hard drive. Now its One Million meg hard drives (1 TB). Crazy.
I hate stupid engineers that dont know how to blast the unused regions from a session.
Heres for you slackers.
(APPLE+SHIFT+U) - selects unused regions in a session
(APPLE+SHIFT+B) - removes or deletes unused regions from a session
If you wanna get greezy you can "compact" the session (see audio regions menu)
Just be warned, that shit is destructive editing, and permanent.
