SSD upgrade: which is better--replace startup/internal drive or external drive(s)
MacBook Pro early 2010, 2.25 GHz, 8Gb RAM
Live 8.4 64-bit; Kontakt 5.2
My Kontakt instruments work fine when run in Kontak's interface, but some (mostly high-polyphony instruments like the Giant and other pianos, organs, strings) tend to glitch or totally crash Live 8.4, often requiring a computer restart.
I've read about people replacing startup drives and/or external/non-startup drives (where instruments and samples are stored) with SSDs to improve performance, but while I'm thinking the internal/startup drive should be replaced first, I'm wondering what you think.
I can't really afford to do both, so will likely replace the start-up drive, but first seek feedback from others who've moved to SSDs.
