i've got my system (including /home) on an ext3 partition, then i use
xfs external drives for all my audio. xfs has been excellent for me,
although in fairness i should note that i have not had any trouble when
occasionally recording to /home. external drives are the only option for
me, because of the sheer volume of audio i deal with, and i read lots of
accounts of xfs being faster for high throughput from large files (i.e.
for video or audio).
