Wasn't someone working on software that you would "play" a scan of a grooved disk? Seems like if
such a thing ever got perfected, any decent letter-sized scanner could do 78 disks.
I for one would volunteer to be part of a "process community," where someone like Steven would
e-mail high-rez scans around and thus spread the complex and time-consuming computer processing
around. Jazz 78's only, please. I see no need to do this with the large portion of 78's already
professionally reissued on CD's. But the obscure ones are a different story.
