    Default Recording an Internal Mix in Traktor over 2048MBs :(

    Hello, fellow DJ professionals, music junkies, gear heads and music maestros! I'm here because my mix files continue to split at around 32-45 minutes in and I don't know when it will happen. I can't record an outro to the mix, and I feel it's a race against time. I would much rather be able to record a set at whatever file size I like and whatever length.

    The file cuts after exceeding 2048MBs, is there any way around this? I'm using a Traktor Kontrol S4 MK2 but I haven't found a way to record "External".

    Very strange that it's splitting where it is... as Jester says, that's a lot more than 45 minutes.

    The technical reason for the 2048MB limit is due to Traktor still being 32 bit software - 32 bit operating systems could not address files larger than 2GB.

    I'm using a 64-bit operating system, if that makes any difference. Though I know what you mean, Traktor is a 32-bit software. Maybe it's that I'm recording at such a high sample rate (192000 Hz)? I'll try to record yet another mix again and see where I get cut off at, hopefully I'll be able to record beyond an hour's length of time; we'll have to see. All of my settings are exactly as they should be despite my sound card not being ASIO compliant. It's a Sound Blaster Recon3D PCIe.

    Can you take the two halves and join them in a DAW? Audacity is free.

    Are you really using files that take advantage of the higher sample rate? otherwise you are just creating larger files for the sake of it. Anyway, once Traktor crosses the threshold it will start recording a new file and you can easily merge them with no audible spot using Audacity or any other audio editor.

    Yeah, that, right there.

    Even if somehow you had tracks that were recorded and encoded at that high a rate (a not easy feat in itself), you have exceeded human hearing by 335% (that is 4.35 times higher frequency than what a human can hear). There is no need to do this at all. Even 48KHz is overkill.

    Heck, this is 1.6 times higher frequency than what a dog can hear.
