SSD music applications question?
If I have a ssd 480gb of music samples/plugins/software ,but the (DAW) digital audio workstation is installed on a 120gb ssd would you suggest I should put the samples/plugins inside the 120gb ssd where the (daw) is"which i would need a bigger ssd for that to happen", or would it run the same speed when using the plugins inside the 480gb ssd?what do you suggest and why?And do you guys know of any site forums that can help me with these types of music tech related questions? Hope you understand the questions. (Sorry for my english)

First, you might want to post this in the Digital Audio board. People probably will know more what to do there.
Secondly, I believe it is usually recommended that plug-ins, recordings and virtual instruments are installed on a separate drive from Logic. Otherwise, one drive is overwhelmed trying to read and multiple processes. At least, this is my understanding. I know you're definitely supposed to have a separate drive for recording anyway.
With two SSDs, you're going to be more than fine though. Only the most demanding/unoptimized of systems really require SSD for samples (example, EastWest QuantumLeap Hollywood Strings comes to mind). That, and certain SSDs might be slow for writing, but apart from recording audio, that really isn't an issue.
