Recorded part of a gig on SD card last night. I was playing and a buddy who's not as smart on the system was running sound so my info for the post is second hand.
Using a 64G SD card, freshly formatted, Made 3 recordings. One short test recording, then the first set, then the second and part of the third on a single recording. In the third longer recording, the recording stopped and the sound man was unable to restart it. He was unable to relay the warning dialogue that the mixer gave him to me and I didn't find out about it until the gig was over so my info is somewhat incomplete.
Here's the data I have though. I recorded all inputs and the main mix. The SD card currently shows 44GB available, and 14GB used.
The first file is only 12 MB.
Second file is 3.6 GB and recorded no problem
Third file is 10.64 GB and is the one that kicked off
Largest individual track in the third file is 1.42 GB (the stereo mix). I didn't get anywhere near the 4 hr limit. Maybe 2 hr max on the third recording.
Any ideas on what could have gone wrong or what I can do to prevent it in the future?
As an aside, this was my third gig with the system and my band mates are for the most part blown away by the speakers. Pretty sure they're all going to buy some more here pretty soon for their other band projects and also because they work so well with my system.
My old soundman has even broken down and put his Allen and Heath GL2400 up for sale.
