So when speaking in mucical terms, what is saturation? Well according to Soundbridge, tape saturation is a phenomenon which stands for analog tape recording. It describes a state in which voltage level is exceeding the tape`s ability to record it. When the signal is being sent to a tape recorded, the voltage is sent to an electromagnet in the recording head. The plastic film (or tape) has a surface made of oxide iron powder. To record the signal on the tape, the recording head of the recorder magnetize each of the iron oxide particles on the tape by varying amounts over time. This becomes a linear representation of the original alternating current and this is where the saturation occurs.
