TAPE RECORDING CHANNEL


Tape recorders

Tape recording: there were no tape machines in studios up to the middle 1960s so all recording and editing was done in remote channels. This is recording channel E7 in 1965 - a horrible ill-ventilated channel between S3 and S4, with windows into their cubicles and tie-lines to enable tapes to be played in. It had three BTR2s and a pair of Prestos, hence the complex linking panel.
