Compensation for Tracing and Tracking Error
A method of compensation proposed by Professor F. V. Hunt to eliminate tracing distortion in the mastering of stereo disc recordings is shown to be equally effective against tracking distortion. The effectiveness is hardly diminished when used to compensate for the joint effects of both tracing and tracking, since approximately an order of magnitude of improvement seems to be offered, even in cases of severe error. The possibilities of practical application, to cure at one stroke the two major sources of distortion in stereo disc reproduction, are discussed.
