Alice has built a self-service sound studio. That is, artists pay for
some time to occupy the facilty, bring their sound engineer with them,
which has access to a fantastic sound mixer, naturally powered by the

When recording has been made, the computer is used to apply some cool
processing on the sound and write down medias with the result. DVD or CD
can be pressed, or an external hard drive can be plugged on the system.

Because user-provided drivers were included in the Hurd, you could plug
a wifi device to instantly transfer data in a remote place, BTW. ;-)

But Alice is not ready to disclose her cool sound processing algorithms
yet, so the sound engineer has to be able to execute the DSP, read input
sound data as well as external data, write external data, but should not
be able to read the sound processor and write it to the external device.
