Recording on a Smart Phone?

<< < (5/5)

WiFiJeff:
I regularly use metarecorder with the MMA-A at 24/96 for CAF files many hours long (usually 4-6), 10 GB.  The metarecorder software insists on resetting to 48 kHz broadcast wave after each erasing of the previous recording. so I end up having to reset the choice to CAF and 96 kHz each time.  Did you actually record a CAF file that stopped at the 2 GB limit?

grawk:
it actually stopped at 2.19GB, oddly enough.  I do have 170gb free on my phone, so it wasn't out of space.

2.19 GB is ~2.039 GiB because a Gibibyte is BIGGER by a factor of approx 1.07x.

I was horrified and fascinated to learn about this from my drive speed test app.

Gigabyte (GB)   1000³ = 1,000,000,000
Gibibyte (GiB)   1024³ = 1,073,741,824

OK it's short for "gigabinary" just learned that right now from the wiki, under "history of the conflicting definitions"

grawk:
first set stopped right at 2gb, in broadcast wave.  CAF one stopped at 2.19.  So I think something else is going on.

DavidPuddy:
I ran my Rode AI-Micro for 3 hours today with no issues in CAF format (3.12 gb)
