    Hi guys,

    Apologies if this has been asked before or there is something similar!

    However, I wonder if I could grab some help? I'm a first time Macbook Pro owner, and slowly integrating it into my home music studio.

    I'm looking to purchase some additional hard drive space for all of my samples to use with Ableton.

    Does anyone recommend any decent Thunderbolt Harddrives that don't break the bank? I also need some additional USB ports, so I wondered what other people have done?

    Cheers guys!

    Tim

    I cannot recommend a specific product but what I can say is that if you want to record using microphones you need to make sure your setup is absolutely silent. Hence no spinning drives but rather SSD drives. Now if you just mix samples a standard HDD will do but then you for sure want that it is fast so better a 7200rpm drive.
