Besides its obvious other uses the word stripe is commonly used in audio to denote the recording of time code onto a tape. Typically (and this was especially true in the analog days) time code was recorded onto the entire length of one track of tape in one pass. Thus the verb to “stripe” a tape came into wide spread use. Nowadays, with our digital and non-linear systems, it is often not necessary to stripe time code because these systems have built in coding that can be used as a good timing reference and converted to SMPTE when needed.
