The DG 4D system was comprised of a stagebox containing custom remote mic preamps and Yamaha converters that connected digitally at 24 bits/44.1/48k to an RTW bit splitter that allowed them to record 24 bit 16 track on a Sony3324. The signal was also distributed to the input of a pair of Yamaha
DMC-1000 digital consoles. The normal orchestral kit that I would see here in the states was a pair or three stage boxes with a pair of machines for
32 track recording. It was basically modular and could be scaled for the job.
All the best,
