Precautions on Recording

  • The maximum duration available for recording with Hi-Res Audio Recorder is 100 minutes. When the duration of the recording exceeds 100 minutes, the recording automatically stops.

    When the free disk space of your computer's disk drive falls below the capacity required for 100 minutes of recording, the remaining duration is displayed at the start of the recording.

  • When the duration available for recording is 0 minute, [Start Recording] is disabled and you need to change the temporary file storage before starting the recording. For detailed information, see “Step 2. Starting Hi-Res Audio Recorder.”

    When your computer's disk drive does not have sufficient free disk space, increase the disk space, for example, by uninstalling unnecessary applications or change the partition size.

    The approximate disk space required for recording is as follows:

    Data format Sampling frequency (bit depth) Approximate disk space required for one minute of recording Approximate disk space required for 30 minutes of recording

    48 kHz (16 bits/24 bits) 35 MB 1 GB
    96 kHz (16 bits/24 bits) 70 MB 2.1 GB
    192 kHz (16 bits/24 bits) 140 MB 4.1 GB
