About 8 track tapes

 

The 8 track tapes is a magnetic tape sound-recording era that changed into popular inside the usa from the mid-Nineteen Sixties to the overdue 1970s, while the Compact Cassette layout took over.

The layout is appeared as an out of date era, and changed into exceedingly unknown outdoor the us, the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and Japan.

Stereo eight became created in 1964 by a consortium led by way of bill Lear of Lear Jet corporation, along side Ampex, Ford Motor organisation, trendy cars, Motorola, and RCA Victor records (RCA).

It turned into a similarly improvement of the similar Stereo-Pak four-song cartridge delivered by using Earl "Madman" Muntz, which was adapted through Muntz from the Fidelipac cartridge developed with the aid of George Eash.

A later quadraphonic version of the layout become introduced with the aid of RCA in April 1970 and primary known as Quad-eight, then later modified to simply Q8.
