1) Although you didnt mention your sampling rate, if you are only doing 4
audio and 1 midi track then disk performance should not be an issue at all.
Ive layed 24 trackes at 44.1/24 sampling to an old ATA-100 drive before.
If you are using a modern machine with SATA drives then you should be
able to exceed that.
2) The performance "hit" for using LVM is, for all practical purposes,
3) I know i said "two items", but now that i have your attention... I
can absolutely confirm what Steve and Neil responded. Ive been a Linux
admin for 15 years and can say unequivocally that LVM has never been a
performance issue on any system i worked on.
Hope that helps!!!
