Recording audio with LC

I have hundreds, maybe thousands, of cassette tapes my company 
wants to archive on hard disk. (OSX, Mac)

I bought a 16 input USB audio interface and 8 cassette decks. 
This way I can record 8 tapes at a time to disk. Tested and 
working in a 'normal' sound app -- Cubase.

But I have to baby-sit the machine in order to stop recording.

I'd like to program LC to automate the process a bit -- stop 
recording after 60 minutes, name resulting files, move to 
appropriate folders, etc.

I'm sure I've read on the list about people using LC/Rev to 
record audio, but can find no reference to it in the manual.

Can LC record audio under script control? Can it properly select 
the Core Audio input to record from? Any pointers to 
documentation or sample code snippets appreciated!
