Re: OT: Logic Zoom HELP!!!--bouncing tape

Indeed, "bouncing" is the technical term.
On a 2 track reel to reel machine you would record on track 1,
then play that back and re-record it onto track 2,
while mixing in the "overdub".
There was no chance to drop in for mistakes, so you
had to play the whole take perfectly in one go.
Luckily, track 1 was left intact by the process,
so you could do take after take.
Once track 2 was perfect, it was tempting to
bounce back onto track 1 again...and so on.

there's more....
