Have recorded 50 channels with: http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/firewire/on-the-go Get the Firewire/USB3 model. I used Firewire, as I don’t have USB3. But USB3 will future proof you.

Size – simple math. 48000 (samples/sec) X 60 (seconds/min) X 4 (bytes/sample) (OK maybe 3, but I always like headroom) will give you how many Bytes needed per minute. Then multiply by 180 for three hours…… AND TIMES THE NUMBER OF TRACKS (40-48)

I did this in a hurry – so someone check my math please (ala Apollo 13).

Create a spreadsheet – easiest way to quickly enter a number (minutes of recording) to calculate size.
