Paying bills with this. What a concept...

Wow. Amazing that people have all this money and don't even know the right thing to ask for...

Why 96k? 44.1 for CDs and 48k for video. If you do 96k and then make a CD the conversion is messy.

If it's a regular gig, look at the Iomega drives on their website. I got a 320GB drive for like $50 a few weeks ago. That will last them a while and be cheaper and better for music than a flash drive. Plus it will make you look good in trying to

11,059,200,000 bytes. No 1024 confusion. This is how many actual bytes will be written for 16 tracks at 48kHz at 24 bits for 80 min. So like I said, get a 16GB flash drive and you're golden....

It depends. There are differences in opinion on what a megabyte is and what a gigabyte is. Hard drive manufacturers like to use the one that makes it look like their drive holds more bits. In the digital world, everything is multiples of 2, hence the 1024 divisor. In the metric world and adopted by marketing folks, they can get away with saying 1000 bits is a kilobit. To me, that's just a clever lie. It's how you can buy a 500 GB drive and only have 490 GB free when it's first opened.

Regardless, it's about 7-8 billion bytes. Check with the manufacturer of the drive you're buying to see how many bytes they can actually store. Sometimes they'll say GiB to let you know without a doubt that they are using 1024 for the divisor. If it just says GB, read the fine print.

I googled AIFF since my last post. The size is comparable to WAV, just a different format. I would say to be safe that you would need a 16GB device for your two 40 minute sets. 8GB is not enough space and the next size available is 16GB. We geeks like a factor of 2...

There are bit calculators all over the Internet. There are several factors you didn't mention that play a huge role in the size: bit depth and sample rate. Are you running at 16, 20, 24 bits? Are you sampling at 44.1hHz or 48kHz? Or are you using other settings?

You need to multiply the bit depth times sample rate times the track count to get bits per second. Then multiply by 3600 to get bits per hour. That's bits. Divide by 8 to get bytes, then divide by 1024 to get kilobytes. Divide by 1024 again to get megabytes. And another division by 1024 gives you gigabytes.

For example, 16 tracks at 24 bits per sample at 44,100 samples per second requires about 7 gigabytes of space for a one hour recording.

That's for the WAV files. I don't know how the AIFF conversion works...

I just got my BlueTube v2. Just a quick session with it and my guitar I can tell that the tube saturation will distort more as you turn it up. I think this is the desired functionality. If you just want a little warmth, turn the knob up just past the click that turns the tube on. That will add a little warmth without the distortion. You don't need to crank the saturation up for vocals unless you're actually trying for a distorted vocal sound...

For a company that seems to support the iPad and iPhone devices for apps, it boggles my mind that you use Flash on your homepage instead of HTML 5. Every time I come to your website I get a big ugly screen with a few tiny links at the bottom. Please fix this. It's really making me not like your website. Not to mention that I can't see pictures of products on the product pages! Bad marketing...

I'll wait for Smaart on the Presonus before dropping that much on an app. Thanks for the tip though - didn't know such apps existed

SL-remote looks fine on the new iPad for now. I was just hoping they could squeeze a bit more on the screen with the higher resolution. I only see 12 channels at a time and was hoping to see all 16. That's all. Maybe an option for thinner channels like the Studio One mixer...

I just picked up my new iPad and everything looks great. Except SL-remote. Any update coming soon to take advantage of the new resolution?
