We shall see what Fred says, but I am fairly certain this is a piece of
cake. I have dome something very similar already.

it would actually be 1.wav at the master location
and it would also be 1.wav at the secondary location

1.wav at the master would contain pcm data
1.wav at the secondary would contain mp2 data
