A total of approx 19000 songs will be in the last straw of recording!
This just in. Most of these will be played back with DeliTracker which do offer playback of previously not-playable songs files by Eagleplayer, this also includes the previous subtune situation for Tracker based modules.

Oh well, can we get this done by Christmas 2021 then?

After the recording was initiated I had to check almost every day to see that the recording was still going smooth. It was an tiresome process that since 2007 is probably 24/7 recording for well over 1000 days!!.

Disassemble and identify a wierd LED Filter ON/OFF for Custom Recordings
During my manual recording I also came across a sample playback demo called "Digi Demo 1" by Dr. Mabuse Orgasm Crackings (1987), but during play it would constantly for each sample loaded turn filter on or off, which was pretty ackward and irritating...

Initial batch of automated recordings DONE!
After over 1 year, the 100% fully automated recording process had played back 80440 tunes, recording them, creating MP3 and FLAC, original and mixed versions.
