Unfortunately, Ross Snyder passed on in January of this year. There is little doubt that it was Ross who came up with the design and name SelSync. At the time, Ampex didn't see the need to patent it.
But they did trademark it! Hence Otari's use of "Sel-Rep" for Selective Reproduce. By the way, have any of you noticed that the spacing between the record and play heads on a Otari 5050 Mark III and earlier are the exact spacing of the 1950s Staggerd-Head Stereo??!!! All ya gotta do is put one track in repro and the other in sel-rep and play the tape. No messing with time delays.
