ATR Magnetics is a company that specializes in the manufacturing of high-quality magnetic recording tape. The company was founded in 1996 by Michael Spitz, a former employee of Ampex, who had been in the magnetic tape industry since the 1970s.
Spitz started ATR Magnetics with a goal to produce magnetic tape that surpasses the quality and performance of the tapes being produced at the time. He began by acquiring the rights to the original Ampex tape formulations and modifying them to achieve even better performance.
ATR Magnetics quickly established itself as a leader in the industry, producing magnetic tapes that are known for their excellent signal-to-noise ratio, high output level, and low print-through. The company's tapes are used by top recording studios, film production companies, and archival institutions worldwide.
ATR Magnetics has continued to innovate and improve its tape formulas over the years, resulting in a range of products that offer superior audio performance and long-term storage stability. The company also produces NAB and Trident hub adapters, which allow its tapes to be used with a wide range of tape machines.
Today, ATR Magnetics is recognized as one of the leading manufacturers of high-quality magnetic recording tape in the world. The company remains committed to producing the best possible tape formulations to meet the demanding needs of professional audio and video recording applications.
