I think there was also some limit in older versions of SoundForge, but I do not know this for a
With SoundForge 7, I ran into the same 2 gig limit running Win2K with NTFS discs. I specifically ran
up against this transferring 3.75 IPS 1-mil 2-channel tapes (90 minutes per direction). Files had to
be cut to 58 minutes or less of 96/24 2-channel. I have that old workstation running other duties
and I just verified that it's got NTFS on all the hard drives I was using (I'd save to internal D
drive first, then back up to external USB drive).
So later versions of SoundForge may now be limited only by disc size in a NTFS system. I'm about to
start a project with some long-duration tapes so I will test this out.
