Secure the contents of any Seismic tape onto disk through magneto's highly accessible interface.

Tape Transcriber

Magneto is built to cleverly and quickly transcribe SEG-Y data from tape onto disk. The software takes each individual SEG-Y file from the desired tape, and writes them separately and encapsulated in SEG-Y for further analysis.

Any seismic data other than SEG-Y is copied onto disk in an efficient RODE encapsulation package.

A Toolbox For Your Data Input, Ouput, Reformat and QC Requirements

Magma has been developed to provide a highly efficient range of data manipulation modules, flexible enough to handle all types of exploration data as well as transcribing, reformatting, and copying seismic data. With the ability to handle data recorded on historic 21 and 9 track drives, the system provides a conduit for the fast transfer of information to and from High Capacity Media, hard disk, and across networks. Magma has been thoroughly tested to be able to work at the near theoretical maximum of the very latest tape cartridge and disk technologies.


Magma runs on commodity PC hardware running Windows or Linux. Because Magma is portable, it can be ported to other platforms if required. Magma can access standard SCSI tape devices, and Troika provides solutions to connect legacy devices such as 9 and 21 Track.

Magma - A Brief Overview

Magma is Troika International's most widely used software, and has continued to mature and develop for over 15 years. Magma is a complete seismic data manipulation package; it is capable of handling virtually all tape & disk input/output requirements. Automatic seismic format analysers are bult into Magma to handle any need to easily transcribe and copy data from one seismic format to another.

Magma has two distinctive parts, the Utility Log and Job Editor, which use GUIs to operate commands the option to control by a text interface or through building scripts is also allowed

Magma can be a vital tool in organizing, re-encapsulating, repairing, and analysing your valuable data assets. Copying data from tape to disk, tape to tape, disk to tape, or disk to disk provides the user with a huge variety of options to restructure a data library. An easy copy process lists valuable information contained within the bytes of your seismic data, and assures you of your data's validity. 

Wide Selection of Job Options to Run

Written in the highly efficient portable C++, Magma is capable of running on multiple platforms with ease, providing simple methods to separate the functionalities within the modules as required. This may often include the addition of specific company defined formats, connection to clients’ systems, transfer of data via network to clients’ existing hardware, and large robotic or centralised data management centres. The modular structure supports proprietary formats to be added easily as front-end or back-end solutions, and support can be assured through quick solutions supplied from Troika’s comprehensive format library.
