AW: sampler or looper? (roland sp555)

What really baffles me in this text is the following statement:
" The SP-555 boasts an expanded internal memory with almost six minutes of
stereo sampling time, or to compact flash cards up to 2 gigabytes in size,
for a total of over 12 hours of sample time."

2GByte for 12 hours means a data rate of roughly 388kbps. So what does that
mean for the "beefed up internal sample memory" for almost six minutes?
16MByte? ;)

        the new SP555 roland is announced at NAMM:

        "The new LOOP CAPTURE function allows users to sample live audio
from the 555's inputs, (you can also play loops from the pads of course),
with real-time effects tweaks. Additionally, artists can connect a
footswitch to the SP-555 to activate the LOOP CAPTURE allowing them to 
individual parts on top of one another. The SP-555 makes it easy to
build-out phrase loops in real time by simply activating the Overdub Mode.
