maxim seismic software from Troika int
Maxim has been developed by Troika as a highly efficient Rode and Superfile creation and manipulation tool. Especially designed around the use of high capacity media, tape libraries, and robotic devices, Maxim runs on PCs running Microsoft Windows NT, 2000, XP and Vista, as well as Linux and Solaris workstations. Tape drives are accessed via standard SCSI adaptors (including adaptec/LSI/Qlogic), and with no practical block size limitation Maxim can drive high capacity tape drives at close to maximum speed. Maxim is implemented as a collection of command line tools written in object oriented C++, and presents a user friendly graphical user interface (GUI). Tape generation is controlled by XML files, which can be used to populate a client's database.
  • Used to create a Rode formatted tape from either Tap (Tif) or SEGY files on disk.
  • Using the Maxim GUI, an XML file is generated which contains a list of data to be outputted (which can either be a Rode file per original tape or per line/directory.
  • Full Robotic library support and density selection functions.
Maxim_Rode_list Used to create a list file detailing the TOC/Metadata from a Rode formatted tape.
Maxim_Rode_Read Used to read a tape containing one or more Rode images, and to transfer each image to disk as an individual Rode or Tap (Tif) file.
Maxim_Rode_Restore Used to restore the contents of a Rode tape to disk as either a Tap file (All non SEGY data) or a SEGY file, and to recreate an XML file of the tape contents.
Maxim_Rp66_copy Used to copy the contents of an RP66/Rode formatted tape to another tape, and to change the VSN number of the second tape.

Used to create a tape containing one or more Superfiles from tape images on disk.
The tape images to be written to tape are specified in an XML file. Each Superfile on
tape is separated by a DEOF (Double End of Filemark).


Used to read a tape containing one or more Superfiles and to write each Superfile to
disk as a Rode or Tap (tif) image. A Superfile can contain tape data in any format
e.g. SEG-D, and is terminated by two consecutive file marks.


Used to perform a bit to bit copy of one tape to another. The copy process terminates
when two consecutive file marks are read.


Used to perform a bit to bit comparison of the contents of two tapes. The comparison
process terminates when two consecutive file marks are read, or a miscomparison is

Magma troika seismic software

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.
