AbstractTape recorders employed to record and eventually reproduce digital data introduce errors into the data. It is desirable to understand the sources of these errors so that predictions may be made of the resultant error rate. While specific predictions are difficult to apply to whole classes of machines and their respective electronic systems, it is possible to make general predictons which give insight into the problems and processes involved. The intent will not be to suggest improvements in recorders, but to supply a heuristic viewpoint for understanding the problems involved in machines and systems that now exist.
