We describe the possibilities of signal processing allowed by the new fully numerical data analysis system developed for the 100 mK resonant gravitational wave antenna AURIGA. We summarize some new ideas, in different stages of practical implementation, which have relevant consequences for the simultaneous analysis of the data coming from detectors located at different sytes. Among these a self consistency test on signal amplitudes for two or more parallel detectors.
