    Hey. I'm quite new to using external hard drives so this will sound bad!

    What i am thinking of doing is having a external running logic pro on it with all the vsts's instead of having it on my internal mem. Is that a good idea?

    Also want to have just one external with my iTunes library on? if i did that will the shortcuts still show up in iTunes?

    I've not tried to install Logic Pro on an external hard drive, but, but I'm not sure if you can. A lot of apps seems to insist on installing on the startup volume.

    THis I've done before, and it's not hard. In iTunes, you need to go into Preferences and click on "Advanced."


    Just click the "change" button and select the folder on your external drive where you have all your music.

    You do have to be careful that your drive is connected and on whenever you're running iTunes, though.
