TIL: the term "bouncing", related to an audio render of several tracks into one, comes from when producers had to record several tracks from a tape onto a single stereo track on a different tape, to free space for more tracks. The term refers to how these tracks were "bouncing" or "ping-ponging" between tapes.

When I started working in recording studios we had tape, and everything was still analog, yet by being in Italy I missed the reference altogether until now.
