I'd prefer to have it just chopped into sections 4-5 minutes long and have them labeled a,b,c,d,e etc. It makes it easy to import a short section when you only need 30 seconds of ambience but then you can piece them together if you need long sections.


I'd prefer option a), because I often end up with an ambience recording, that stops exactly where I want it to continue. It is a little bit more work, but in the end there is added value if you can decide by yourself where those representative sections are. Another option would be to have markers in the recording that point out the representative sections ...
