Default WAV File Size Calculator

A thread the other day asking about file sizes for a live recording prompted me to post this. For awhile, I've used a little spreadsheet I made to calculate file sizes for different rate, depth, and length tracks and songs. So - I prettied it up a bit and am posting it here.

Very simple - just enter your values in the green area and it will show you the resulting file size. The rate and depth fields include pop-ups for picking the common settings. I've set it by default as a 1 minute 16/44.1 stereo file - which yields, as you see, the "10M per minute" standard we are all familiar with for songs on CD.

Hope this is of use to someone! It comes in handy for me.

(Note - I had to attach as a zip file - just download and unzip - let me know if problems or suggestions)

You're first post is moderated-to make sure you are not a robot, a spammer, or something like that. It's something we had to bring in because of all the idiots out there in cyberspace. Try again now.

Yep-we were under huge attack from China a few months ago, 1.000's of the buggers, and we took several different measures to stop the problem. It worked!! But-sorry for the inconvenience.
