Title: Preferred memory stick?
Post by: Hapbarb on November 06, 2019, 02:33:38 PM
Is there a brand of memory stick that anyone prefers? I've yet to update my OS; I want to do that, as well as purchase an add-on. Will I need separate memory sticks to do both tasks, and would I need a specific memory capacity for either? Thanks!

Iíve used PNY and SanDisk, but pretty sure any would work. 
As for capacity, Iíve used 16GB and 32GB drives.
And Iím almost certain you can use the same USB drive for both updates and importing samples.

64GB drives are so cheap these days ($10-15) even from brands like SanDisk and PNY that Iíve also had good experiences with, that you might as well go with a reasonable size and a reputable name.  I use the same device for both firmware and samples, no problem.  Format it with the Prophet X to eliminate as many variables as possible and you shouldnít have any trouble.

I like the low profile ones that barely stick out once inserted.  They can be slightly harder to remove, but not sticking out much means itís much harder to accidentally apply leverage that damages the USB port on your keyboard.  Thatís worth a lot in terms of peace of mind for me.
