Rich is an audiobook narrator, and he records huge files on his Mac Mini. Should he record to an external hard drive, rather than the internal drive? Leo says that is just silly. The SSD has wear levelling that keeps it in a safe condition and the reliability isn't an issue. They also have error correction built in. So it will be just as fine to record to the internal drive than an external drive. Thunderbolt 3 is also just as fast as the internal drive, so either one will work. And professional grade professional software will ensure no errors happen.
Walter would like to connect his iPad to his stereo and record music. Leo says that's doable if he gets the right cable. He'll want a four ring cable and the software that can handle the audio signal. It needs to be a stereo audio in, and lightning out. Walter should check out the Griffin StudioConnect. He could also check out BlueMic.com.
