1) A technique of stopping the fast winding (either fast-forward or rewind) of tape in older tape machines where the engineer put the tape machine in the opposite fast mode and pressed stop after the machine just started to reverse direction. 2) Moving the reels by hand so that the tape moves past the desired point first in one direction, then in another direction, back and forth. 3) A control, which moves the sound track either forward or backward when the control is moved off a center point either, left or right.
