Different tape recording speeds
Tape Speeds for different formats as measured in inches per second, or centimeters per second. Tape formats range from reel-to-reel to cassettes.
Cassettes go the slowest of the bunch, at 1-7/8 inches/second. Microcasettes aren’t mentioned here (but are in this 1983 microcassette review), but they go half the speed of cassettes, at 15/16 inches per second, or even slower: 1/2 inch per second.)
