In making this broadcast, a large number of musical information items need to be recorded on a recording medium in advance.
The musical information items recorded thereon are optionally read out for broadcast.
Background Art Recently, the technique for digitizing, compressing and transmitting the information has been put to practical use.
This enables musical numbers for e.g., 100 channels to be broadcast to respective households via a broadcasting satellite, so that the households can suitably select and enjoy desired musical numbers.
However, if the information of the numerous channels it to be transmitted, the CDs are reproduced on 100 compact disc players, and the resulting reproduced outputs are encoded by 100 encoders to generate data to be broadcast for temporary recording the generated data on a recording medium. Thus, for making this broadcast, it is necessary to prepare in advance a large number of magnetic tapes having the musical information for 100 channels recorded thereon.
