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).
