    Hi All,

    I'm just received my R24. Just wondering, Recording in 48khz-24Bit-8 Channels-with 16GB-how many hours to go?

    Thanks for advice.

    Do the sums:

    Rate is 48000 samples/sec x 8 tracks x 3 bytes/sample = 1.152 x 10^6 bytes/sec = 6.912 x 10^7 bytes/min.

    Capacity is 16GB = 1.7 x 10^10 bytes (although probably not all usable)

    Dividing capacity by rate gives around 248 minutes = a little more than 4 hours.
