    I want to build a computer for SoundBridge. I want to choose how much SSD to use in it.

    I thought of two variants. In both variants I will not store archive files on computer on which I will work in SoundBridge. Only current project work files will be on computer on which I will work in SoundBridge. Archive files I will store in NAS or another computer with RAID.

    ——————————————————————————-

    Variant 1. On computer for SoundBridge one SSD: M.2, PCI-E x4, NVMe.

    Two logical disks on it: disk C, disk D.

    Disk C: Windows 10 Home 64-bit, applications including SoundBridge.

    Disk D: current project work files.

    ——————————————————————————-

    Variant 2. On computer for SoundBridge two SSDs. Each SSD: M.2, PCI-E x4, NVMe.

    First SSD. Disk C on it. On disk C: Windows 10 Home 64-bit, applications including SoundBridge.

    Second SDD. Disk D on it. On disk D: current project work files.

    ——————————————————————————-

    What is better for SoundBridge’s performance, stability, data safety?

    Both of those versions seem good as reading audio files from a disk of that speed should not be a problem even in extreme scenarios. Could you describe the file properties you usually work with, like sample rate and such?

    Data safety is best achieved by backing up work after every work day to that other NAS or backup computer.

    I want to make mastering of piano music. These will be piano pieces. Each will last from two to three minutes. I will combine these pieces into the album. The album will have from eight to ten pieces. The finished recording will have only a piano – one instrument. After mastering I will upload the finished recordings to different music sites – this will be the only way to distribute these recordings. There will no be physical media – CD, DVD – in distribution.

    Next I will make new piano pieces.

    modern8music, what sample rate I need for it?

    @Konskoo

    Music is distributed most commonly at the sample rate: 44100Hz (44,1kHz)

    Some streaming platforms require higher sample rate master, always check their recommendations and/or requirements.
