i went to one of the shops along college, got an 80 gb HD for $40 and a usb enclosure for $50, which has it's own power supply, and i use it with serato all the time...Phat Trick said:anyone have any tips/warnings for buying an external HD to run with serato? Is it cool to use a portable HD that's powered by usb or should I get a fancy HD that has a separate power supply and uses firewire?
The laptop that I use is a macbook, if that matters.
you can also use your ipod the same way, we have played off my ipod on serato a couple times and it's just a shitty 2gb nano
i recommend a laptop HD in an enclosure, that way you don't need external power if you want real reliability in a small package
