Time Errors in Magnetic Tape Recording

A theoretical treatment of time errors encountered in magnetic tape recording is developed. Effects of random noise are considered, as well as motional effects (flutter). Experimental results, obtained using an Ampex Model 3078 two-channel tape recorder and an Axis-Crossing Interval Meter, are presented. The use of autocorrelation methods to predict and measure flutter characteristics is discussed in detail.
