As the format nopw exists, recording in only one direction would be
But as per my original post, full track & two track would be
And, such special format cassettes would be substantially compatible
For stereo, the audiocassette format as originally specified and
Philips called for four tracks to ensure mono compatibility. Unlike
track 1/4" stereo open reel tapes, with audiocassettes the stereo
adjacent to each other in one direction.
I don't know of any full track mono audiocassette recorder.
I don't know if it's a "full track" head, but for years Marantz has
sold a mono cassette recorder, the PMD-101, presumably aimed at the
newsgathering/spoken word/lecture market...
Here is the page describing it, which I suspect means that it is still
produced by Marantz and available to purchase...
BTW, does anyone know if this machine indeed uses full-track heads (I
assume one full mono track in each direction)?
