Otari MTR-10

Description

The Otari MTR-10 Series are fully microprocessor controlled 1/4" and 1/2" tape recorder/reproducers.

Tape movement is governed by a proven 8080A microprocessor on the recorder's plug in CPU (central processing unit) board.

Enhancing the CPU, four erasable, programmable read-only memories (EPROMs) furnish the necessary firmware for controlling the machine's operating parameters and production features.

Additionally, Otari's research has led to the development of a proprietary microprocessor which economically raises the level of reliability due to the use of fewer electronic and mechanical parts - fewer linkages, fewer relays, and fewer critical adjustments.

Reel motor, capstan and transport control circuits are each contained on individual, modular plug-in circuit boards.
