This is done by writing samples from tape into a memory in columns, and when it is full, the memory is read in rows. Samples read from the memory are now in their original sequence so there is no effect on the recording. However, if a burst error occurs on the medium, it will damage sequential samples in a vertical direction in the de-interleave memory. When the memory is read, a single large error is broken down into a number of small errors whose size is exactly equal to the correcting power of the codes and the correction is performed with maximum efficiency.

The disk drive can read a block of data from disk, and place it in the timebase corrector in a fraction of the real time it represents in the audio waveform. As the timebase corrector read address steadily advances through the memory, the disk drive has time to move the heads to another track before the memory runs out of data.
