Abstract : A system, or applique apparatus, for recording and reproducing large numbers of electrical signals on input channel limited recording devices is described. It is accomplished by time sequencing groups of pluralities of separate input signals to a plurality of recording units within a recorder, wherein each recording unit handles a separate group of input signals. The time sequence is provided by a multiplexer controller and is common to each group. The plurality of recording units after recording the signals provide them in the groups in which they were received to respective demultiplexers. A demultiplex controller that receives 2 timing signals from the multiplex controller via the recorder supplies timing signals to the plurality of demultiplexers for reconstruction of the original input signals.
