File size/length limit?
« on: February 27, 2015, 13:15:47 »
Hi all, thank you for accepting me to the forum!

I'm trying to produce an image for a file that's 24hrs long. It's a location recording from a property and I'm trying to display the background noise over the course of a day. The file is MP3 at 320kBps, SV eventually opens this but then shows no analysis. When I split the file into two CAF files, it'll open them but it can't 'zoom out' far enough to show the whole file onscreen.

Can anybody recommend any methods or potential alternative softwares to remedy this?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Frazer -- I don't know about alternatives, but I can confirm that (sadly) SV can't currently handle this. Although SV is designed to handle files and analysis plots that don't fit in memory, there are still 32-bit length limits for some calculations internally.

This is one of the things that I'm working on in the background at the moment -- we've seen a few requests for a true 64-bit build for Windows (the current one is 32-bit only on that platform) but there doesn't seem much point while we aren't properly taking advantage of the architecture -- especially since all the current plugin builds are also 32-bit only and a 64-bit host can't currently run 32-bit plugins.
