The higher noise level associated with cassettes makes the selection of a recorded program level more critical in this format to obtain an optimum compromise between noise and distortion. The various phases of a study undertaken to establish program levels for duplicated cassette copies based on program peak level information are described. The design of an automatic program peak level accumulator is discussed as are final results of the study.
