Step 1: Analog streams of 4 tape machines (2 tracks each) is parallel processed by a PC
Step 2: Audio stream is premastered, phrase detected and stored on hard disk
Step 3: 4 reverse tracks are turned into the correct order
Step 4: WAV files are checked
Step 5: Files are stored on a DLT drive and can be used for the structuring process
Step 6: Structuring and building process can be done with LpStudio or Sigtuna Recorder
