I did a quick search and did not find any information in any detail but like others that posted quite some time in the past I would like to know how long a sound is going to last when programming a sequence.

I decided to work with the relationship of file size vs sound length. Given that we are dealing with two file types and also file types that are probably compressed there will be some variation in the relationship between file size and sound length. I took 5 sounds at random from each file type, fxp and 24b.

The 24 bit files averaged 7 seconds per 1,000 kb (1,000 KB).
A file size of 10,609 KB would calculate as 10.609 x 7 = 75 seconds

The fxp files averaged 62.37 seconds per 1,000 kb (1,000 KB).
a file size of 1,059 KB would calculate as 1.059 X 62.37 = 66 seconds

sound.................file type....file size KB.. time SECONDS.....seconds per 1000 KB
LIGHTNING JACK...24B...........10,609.........75............ ............7.07
DYING JACK.........24B...........4,335..........30...... .................6.92
SNOWSHOE 1......24B............7,055..........50........... ............7.09
BABY RED FOX.....24B...........11,228.........81........... ............7.21
SCREAMIN RABBIT24B........... 11,135.........73........................6.56

BABY COTTONTAIL.......FXP....1,272..........75......... ...............58.96
DSG............................FXP....929......... ...60........................64.59
CROW FIGHT...............FXP....1,059..........65...... ..................61.38
JACK RABBIT DISTRESS FXP....1,251..........80........................63 .95
LUCKY BIRD................FXP....1,270..........80...... ..................62.99

Hope this helps
