You could get 16mm projectors that recorded onto the magnetic stripe. I know Bell & Howell had a model that did this, it came with a separate audio recording panel that plugged into the projector.

The Steenbeck replays from 16mm. stripe. Very, very few super-8 sound editors could record- I'd be very surprised if anyone ever put that on a 16mm. viewer. It's just not a professional feature.

Roger,

 

That would be the Siemens 2000 16mm projector that could record on magnetic stripes on the 16mm film , i.e.

They also had a 2nd variation that duplicated the transport that was basically a two track 16mm projector. One for picture and the other was for 16mm fullcoat magnetic film. Both were interlocked for sync.

The Bell and Howell JAN 16mm projector has a version that can record to as well as play back from  magnetic striped film. It has a separate unit that attaches to the projector via cables for recording.  Very well made.  International Cine Equipment Co (ICECO) in Miami may still be able to provide such a setup with a synchronous motor powering the projector for exact 24fps film speed.  I purchased mine from them years ago.
