OriginEdit

Tape recorders are audio storage devices that record and play back sounds captured on the tape. In its present-day form, it records a fluctuating signal by moving the tape across a tape head that polarizes the magnetic domains in the tape in proportion to the audio signal. Tape-recording devices include reel-to-reel tape deck and the cassette deck. Magnetic taping was first introduced in the 1930s and portable commercial cassette tapes became popular in the 60s until replaced in the early 21st century with digital recording.

EffectsEdit

Can play back any sound ever made within an area. Connecting it with other devices would allow it to extend its power (i.e. hook it up to a security camera and you can play back anything ever recorded on it). It will record all noises on a blank tape and can only be used one time in an area.
