In this correspondence the problem of calculating the power spectral density of a constrained maxentropic vector sequence {a(n)}, a(n) = [ai(n)]0<i<N - 1, is considered. The constraints of the constituent sequences {ai(n)}are defined by the soflc systems Si presented by the directed graphs Gi, 0 < i < N - 1, but the vector sequence itself is constrained additionally, and given by a function φ of constituent graphs (G = φ(G0, ⋯, GN-1)). This class of vector constraints is met in parallel multitrack recording. The general case of a simultaneous recording on N tracks is considered, assuming that the common vector constraint is track-invariant.
