Want to know what size your 16-bit or 24-bit files will be on hard drive at different sample rates?  Here you go...

Bit-Depth      Sample Rate (in kHz)       MB Per Track-Minute
16                  44.1                                 5
16                  48                                    5.5
24                  44.1                                 7.6
24                  48                                    8.25
24                  96                                    16.5
24                  192                                  33

A typical CD-R can hold just over 21 track minutes of 24/96 audio...

And for those who are math-challenged:
