Tape Recorder Player : Tape Stop Effect Story
A tape recorder or player is a storage device used to read and write data to magnetic tape. Tape recording is most often used to archive data that is kept away from the drive. Tapes are generally relatively inexpensive and show little deterioration over time if stored in a suitable environment : the famous effect All Lofi producers want in their beats!
Modern tape drives typically use cartridges, which distinguishes them from the older tape drives used on mainframe computers, which used separate reels.
At one time, some tape drives were designed as a cost-effective alternative to expensive hard drives. Examples include the ZX Microdrive and Rotronics Wafadrive. This is generally no longer possible with modern tape drives that exploit advanced techniques that work against writing isolated data, and it is in any case no longer necessary with the falling price of hard drives.
However, an undesirable effect called “shoe-shining” occurs when the tape is read or written to in short bursts. Because the drive heads are designed to transfer data to and from a continuously running tape at minimal speed, modern high-speed drives are unable to stop the tape instantly. The drive must decelerate, then stop the tape, rewind a little, restart, and advance the tape again to the point where the read or write operation stopped. If this sequence of operations is repeated, the resulting back and forth motion resembles wiping an object with a cloth. Slippage decreases the transfer rates that can be achieved, as well as the life of the tapes and the drive.
The magnetic tape is usually protected by a box known as a cassette or cartridge like the Stereo Pak or audio cassette.
