I don't have exact numbers, sorry about that, but please guide me.

I am trying to post in my website a conference from a CD that lasts about 1 hour and a half. I am using garageband to make it a podcast. Unfortunately, Garageband will chop off the file at about the 60 minute area.

Why is this happening?

What would you recommend?

Even though you are recording voice, Garageband is probably still counting beats, and there's a limit to how many measures it will allow. Try setting the tempo down to the slowest setting to see if that increases the time.

Exactly, if you lower the tempo you can record for longer. Found that out the hard way.

Thanks for the help. I'll try that.

Do you know then what will be garageband's approximately total recording capacity in minutes in the slowest tempo?

Thanks.

Because if they don't it'll be slower as it'll have to support a larger database, 60 minutes is pretty damn long...
