I have a new computer (MacBook Pro 2011) with an SSD as my OS/DAW drive, and another internal HDD for recording. After reading various pro audio sources online I took advice to format my Record Drive as non-journaled. But I want to make things as efficient as possible. Namely, I don't want Spotlight or anything else doing business in the background, i.e. using resources, while I'm recording or mixing. I just want me and Logic Pro. Is there anything else I should be wary of in preferences, system settings etc.? However I have seen a couple comments that Logic Pro needs Spotlight to function, for some reason, so I shouldn't put / in the privacy tab of Spotlight preferences. I can't find an official stance on this from Apple. Can anyone confirm? Thanks in advance.
