Where should I keep the samples?

You can keep the sample pool wherever you want, but here are a few tips you might want to take a look at:

→ Use the fastest hard drive you have available.
The samples are optimized for streaming, so if you have an SSD drive at hand, it’s a perfect candidate.

→ Keep the samples in a folder that’s not used by the system.
This might restrict an access to them. On a Mac, the Library is an example of a system-reserved folder. On Windows, it’s everything in the Program Files. It’s best to avoid these and keep the sample pool eslewhere.

→ Avoid keeping the files in the Downloads folder.
Or any other folder that you might accidentally empy ;-)

→ Make sure that the folder containing the samples is not syncing to the cloud.
This might cause the samples to magically disappear or stop them from being streamed by the plugin.
