 Yeah. 4 of them are swappable {drawers}. I keep backups, libraries and so on on
disks {and dvds} I do video. Video requires lots of storage. {Most of my work
is widescreen... {animated... not anamorphic} It suffers when I dump it to
tape. HDs are relatively cheap.

 Lives resample *everything* {even 41.4} to 41.4. Dvds are 48 {DVD music lets
you use ungodly high sampling rates, DVDs don't cost that much more, are
perfect for surround and I've seen some components lately {audiomidi.com I
think} that are optimized for higher sampling rates  ...there's beginning to be
a real point to it.} . I don't know if you're familiar with the mess that
resampling can make of your synch or not... it can make for a real mess.

Besides... 24/96 just sounds so much better... and the cost of
something like an audiofile or a terratec just isn't that much.
See these tears so blue. An ageless heart that can never mend.
Tears can never dry. A judgement made can never bend.  
And I've been putting out fire with gasoline...
