Length limit on how long a recording can be before it can't be saved?

Hello. I would like to ask a quick question about how large a project can be before it can't be saved. I've tried uploading some recordings of mine, but it doesn't seem to want to save anything longer that 2.5 minutes.
My question is: How long can a recording be before the site can't save the project that it's been uploaded to?
Sorry to bother you.

It's not a length limit, it's a file size limit. Sound files can be at most 10 MB before they can't save.

This is my forum signature! On a forum post, it is okay for Scratchers to advertise in their forum signature. The signature is the stuff that shows up below the horizontal line on the post. It will show up on every post I make.

I was a Scratch Team member from May 10th 2019 to October 29th 2021.

This is not correct - this is old information that dates from Scratch 2.0 and is no longer true.

Current information can be found here, although @Za-Chary has already answered @Ebony_Starcutter's question.

Despite what my About section says, I have been using Scratch before 2019. 2019 was the year that I first joined Scratch.

When you record a sound, Scratch records a WAV, mono, 768kbps (768 kilobits per second, that's awful, or 352kbps if it's too big) sound file picking up from your microphone. Scratch only records in 768kbps and 352kbps. Scratch has a 10MB asset limit. If we have a maximum of 10MB and a bitrate of 768kbps, that allows 104.17 seconds or 1 minute and 44 seconds of recording in Scratch. If we have a bitrate of 352kbps, that allows 227.27 seconds or 3 minutes and 47 seconds of recording in Scratch.

Also, don't necropost. The topic is 1 year, 2 months old. It's when you post something on old topics (3 months or higher). Reporting to be closed.
