It does. Think of it as a little crossfade.
You can buy little tape holders (mines are from revox and akai).
You can srew or glue them to your player, right near the heads.
It holds the tape for you, and has several grooves that make
you cut twice at the same angle.
They come with the right "glue-tape", and coloured blanco tape.
Practice a little, and you'll be able to do 100 clean edits per hour.
