Flash drives have a finite life due to the fact that the memory
cells die after a certain number of writes. They're probably OK
for storing audio and session files that don't get changed much,
but on a system drive the OS does a lot of writes in the background.
Just something to be aware of.

An option for MADI would be nice.

Not sure this would work for studio owners, as converter choice
is highly personal and subjective. A quick search at Gearslutz will
reveal endless arguments about this.

Otherwise, good ideas.
