Tape Reproducer Response Measurements with a Reproducer Test Tape

Document Thumbnail

The Reproducer Test Tape affords the most satisfactory field means of standardizing magnetic sound recording systems. This method is nevertheless susceptible to numerous errors of measurement due to: 1) inappropriate Test Tape (wrong speed, equalization, track format, or test frequencies), and 2) mechanical misadjustment of the reproducer (head height; azimuth and zenith adjustment; and poor tape-to-head contact due to -dirt- on heads, inadequate tape tension or wrap around the heads, improper vertex adjustment, worn heads, and improper tape guiding).
