Hi EXer,

Yes, those two items look fine. In all likelyhood, the capacity you mention will be fine . . .(32Gb is NEARLY 40Gb), I only went for the

128GB because I could :wink: . . . . and to CONFIRM that the Fusion will only format up to 120Gb (which is TRUE).

In actuality, with all the extra Banks I have from Klaus, Joeri and Steve + the original Demos + all the Songs I have made - I have only used

~9Gb 8O

So unless you are planning a sampling-feste, or wanting to record HOURS of 8-track Audio, then it's not really necessary :roll:

One further thought - perhaps fit the 2 E3 modules? (unless this has already been done). I paid around £150 for my Alesis ones when I first

got my 8HD.

Brian at sector101 has them for around HALF that price . . . (I just bought 2 for my 6HD).

Good luck with the upgrade - and DO let us know how it goes . .

Thanks for that kind reply, parametric.

Sector101 EXM-E3 modules are already installed.

An order for a SSD is about to be placed and I shall keep you informed of any future developments.

I recently noticed these DOM (Disk on Module) items from my original supplier . . .

IF they will work, and IF they will fit between the two pcbs in the Fusion - it would be the neatest solution yet . . . .

Not sure what the jumper does - possibly MASTER/SLAVE? . . . . . . I've emailed AceSupplier to ask . . . .

Jumper might need to be bent 90º to fit between the pcbs . . .
