Sometimes called a quarter track refers to most home-type, reel-to-reel tape recorders which use one-fourth the width of the tape for each recorded track, allowing stereo signals to be recorded in both directions, doubling the recording time. Professional stereo tape recorders use one-half the tape for each track, resulting in better quality and reduced noise level. See magnetic tape. See also half tracktwo-track.
