I have had troubles with my disk on my laptop being too slow for recording 13 mics on a drum kit. I am considering buying some kind of external storage unit for recording as I record on one computer and mix on another.

What specs should be considered when looking into using an external SSD? Would an M.2 SSD connected with a USB 3.0 to USB C suffice  for recording a drum kit with 16 mics? I'm thinking of buying something of the kind but I want to be sure that it's a good purchase.
