Sonicstage : Knowing how much music will fit?

Rate this question

Question

Hi

Starting using sonic stage for the first time, and Im wondering if there is a way to know how much room is being taken up on an MD before clicking trnasfer? Like putting th tracks over to transfer, but not actually transfering them till im ready?

 

Thanks

In NetMD mode (which I think you're using) you get an indication in the transfer box on the right of the number of Free Minutes:Seconds  left on your disk. That number is for SP mode, so if you're transferring in LP2 mode then double that, or in LP4 quadruple it. There are system overheads, so the actual time you get is slightly less than shown. I normally underestimate the time available by half a minute or so to avoid going over. 

In Hi-MD mode you're shown the number of free bytes on the disk. You'd need to 'do the math' to work out how much you can fit in the available space at your chosen transfer bitrate, but my general rule of thumb is that 1 minute is roughly 1MB at LP2 (132kbps).

Thanks for the answer.  I was afraid that thats all there would be. 

 

And your right, it was NetMD.
