Half-Track

An analog tape head configuration for two track recording. Half-track heads are designed to record two tracks, each on half of the recording tape. Unlike consumer based recorders, which are often quarter track configurations (two each direction), half-track machines can only record the tape in one direction. The idea is to maximize the available tape surface for the two audio (L & R) tracks for best sound quality.
