Sony PCM-M10 question

    I was wondering if someone could help me with some information that I could not find in the manual. I currently use a tascam dr-08 but I'm running in to a problem.... perhaps the PCM-M10 would solve the problem...

    Just like the PCM-M10 the tascam has its built-in folders of 2GB. If the recording goes beyond that, a new folder is created automatically. The problem is that there's an audio gap between one folder to the other once the track is merged.

    The PCM-M10 has 10 folders in its built-in memory of 4GB. My question is:

    1.How big is each folder?

    2. If my recording goes beyond a folder, would I get a gapless audio when I merge the tracks or there's no solution?

    I'm recording about 3 hours in 24/48K

    any help please? :smile:

    the folders are just for organization and are not limited to a size in KB, MB, or GB.

    Question two is invalid based on the statement above but I will provide this information to you.

    If the 4 gigs of internal memory become full and you have a micro sdhc card or a sony memory card in the sony m10 with the cross recording feature enabled, it will write to the external memory automatically without any audio gaps.

    mathematically 4 gigs will result in 4 or so hours of recording time so recording 24 bit @ 48K is no issue on the m10.

    One neat feature of the m10 is the ability to copy from internal memory to external or from external to internal.

    Thank you for the detailed reply! I really appreciate! I guess you can't go wrong with the M10 huh? :)

    The only thing I wish this recorder had would be spdif in but the answer to that is the sony d50 with optical spdif in.
