Most analog tape recorders exhibit head bump variations in low-frequency response. When companding noise reduction is used the effect of head bumpes becomes the most prominent defect in recordings. The use of dedicated semi-fixed parametric equalizers to flatten recorder response has improved the quality of the author's tape production.
