Tape Audio Comparison

In this section we're going to compare 3 different types of Audio Signals which are very common to come across when working with tapes.

This is most likely how Audio Wave Data sounds like.

  • Definition of a rhythm
  • Baseline/baselines
  • Vocals sounding very distorted and crunched
  • Typical sounds or part of a song you actually can recognize

This you should recognize 🙂 It's "music for your ears".


Something you can't hear or make anything out of. This kind of Signals usually come from.

  • Worn out tapes
  • Rerecorded signals
  • Overlapping data
  • Patched signals
  • Magnetic fields
  • Wobbly tape
