The Commodore 1530 (C2N) Datasette was Commodore's dedicated tape data storage device. Using cassettes, it provided inexpensive storage to Commodore's 8-bit home computers, including the PET, VIC-20, and C64. The connection to the computer was via a proprietary edge connector. The input/outout signals were digital, with the conversion to analogue audio frequencies performed by the tape unit itself.
