[ardour-users] file lengths

since all files are converted to wav or bwf on import, it is not 
possible to import (or record, for that matter) files which would result 
(i.e. after splitting channels) in filesizes greater than ~4Gb, right? 
i'm a little confused about that limit.... some sites say 2Gb and some 
say 4Gb.

anyway, there is a constraint on the length of any single chunk of audio 
due to the wav/bwf format, right? would someone clarify this in 
real-world numbers, please? i'm looking at recording live events which 
run to a few hours, in 96k, float.
