The Australian company, Optro, built 16 and 24 track two inch tape machines. These where designed by Mr Graham Thirkle, the company owner/director who also developed the Editron syncroniser. It is beleived by members of the AES, in Australia, that Graham was in fact the first to develop the 2 inch 24 track tape machines.
