The Producer’s Vocab #2
“Because half the battle in understanding… is the language that we use.”
Hi-fi Transcription Turntable: High fidelity refers to a quality of sound that approaches the “perfect” reproduction of audio, as distinguished from the degraded sound reproduction of the phonautograph, phonograph, and gramophone.  As vinyl became a popular recording medium and “stereo recording and playback” evolved in the mid-1900s, “transcription disks” became common for recording radio transmissions, and the transcription turntable eventually dominated over the gramophone.  -TPM, Wikipedia
Vinyl (pictured): The older cousin of Berliner discs.  Vinyl became very popular in the 1900s as a recording medium, and its mass reproduction “sealed the market dominance” of the turntable.  Originally used for recording radio broadcasts, vinyl became “the storage medium of choice for recorded music” by the 1940s and is still in use today. -TPM
Recording Tape: A recording medium developed in Germany that “came into use during World War 2…[and] works by storing the changing electrical source signal from a microphone as corresponding changes in magnetic charge along the length of a flexible tape coated with magnetic metal oxide.” -TPM
