Okay fellas. IM totally in experimental mode because i have to get this project done. I tried to record and edit music with the new macbook which doesn't have firewire drives with it...total pain inn the ass..anyway, i started trying to do it with usb. By the way i have a lacie drive...anyway, the 1st day was cool and then the next day gave me problems..so i copied the session folder to my desktop and i have been working off of that. Now my question and/or concern is Will i expect some problems working off of my desktop like this? I usually work off of the drive but i believe it is to slow to transfer speedy and stead protools information..and is there is any kind of alternative setup that I can use to facilitate my needs? Thank you for everyones response in advance.
