    Have you huys heard of this new storage device...
    You can put up to 4GB of DDR Ram on it and it connects via SATA
    Windows sees it as a hard drive, but it's RAM (fast random access, much lower latency, quiet, and much faster fily i/o than a regular hard drive)

    Here's a review of it.

    what would you DAW'ers use thing this for?

    looks like an interesting idea!... . I would imagine it would reduce latencies for those people who are heavily samplers. In terms of vst count i wounldn't think it would do a great deal. Problem is, sample libraries are quite big in general, and constantly shifting samples in and out of the i.Ram would be annoying (although frighteningly quick).

    would make a great ram drive.
    only problem is its limited to the Sata connection so its not all that fast.

    New technology is great but its best to let the kinks be wrung out first before diving into it!
