Out of interest where do you put kontact?

SSD? external drive?

I've got 2tb SSD 1.3 tb free.

Mine is on main Mac SSD

My 2tb external SSD is connected with time machine.

Don't like idea of it being on external myself

Views on your set up would be most grateful

    Mine is on an internal SSD. A lot of people use external SSD with no problems though.

    All applications and plugins should be installed to internal system drive ! Only folders that you should ever change from default is the Download folder and the Content folder , all other folder should be left as is per default !

    Depending on the version and tier of Komplete Bundle that you have and number of third party libraries then 1,4 TB is really not that much ! , especially since the rule for use of SSD , at least historically has been that you ought not fill a SSD drive more than %80 because that it could otherwise lead to performance degradation because of on-drive internal SSD disk management. This might have changed though or could even depend on make and version of drive, I wouldn't know !

    I have lots of software so not putting anymore on SSD internal drive

    I'm new so I've learnt about groups in Ableton 12 and return and sends, freezing tracks.Makes a lot of difference on CPU.
