mag dubber : A type of sprocketed tape recorder/playback machine device that reproduces one or more audio tracks onto the magnetic area of magnetic film which has a magnetic stripe. A playback-only machine for sprocketed magnetic film, reproducing one or more tracks of sound onto the magnetic area on the film stock. Some mag dubbers which are equipped with dual sets of sprockets can reproduce more than one size of magnetic film, e.g., 16mm and 35mm. See mag-optical print.

digital dubbers : Film industry term for a multitrack digital recorder, usually having eight tracks per unit, that use removable hard drives or magneto-optical drives as the recording medium. The term is partly a misnomer because previous film sound terminology had used dubber to describe a copying device as opposed to a recording device.

dubber : Film sound term for a playback-only mag machine. These were previously known as dummies. See digital dubber.
