Entries found for search: edit switch

edit switch : On a tape recorder, a switch that engages the play mode but not the take-up motor. Tape is driven past the playback head and reproduced, but then spills off the machine and may be edited out. This process is called a dump edit. On some machines, the edit switch merely defeats the tape lifters, allowing the editor to scrub the tape past the playback head.
