(The files at the far left, squished down to 14.3% of their original size, consist entirely of silence. This is because when using my vsl1818 with Audacity I can only record tracks 1 through N. If for some reason we've set things up so no one is plugged into track 4, I still end up with a recording of that track, 3hr of silence. Ignore these in computing the average and flac only managed to make things 66% smaller.)
I could have combined multiple tracks from the same dance into one multi-track flac for better compression, but this seemed like too much hassle and too much chance of making files that would be hard to work with later.
