Is an external drive necessary for playback during live shows?
I'm taking Ableton out on the road finally to replace my MPC in the live setup. I've always kept all my audio on a Firewire external but I'd rather not lug that around to shows and just run it on the system drive.
It seems to me that if I'm using Ableton for playback only, it shouldn't be necessary to have the second drive. But I don't know for sure.
What's the deal? What do you folks use in live situations?
