The Gates cart machines were rebranded ATC machines. ATC was a progenitor of ITC, one of the foremost of the cart machine manufacturers. I worked with ATC machines and the rebranded Gates machines beginning in 1969.

The best and most expensive cart machines (~ $4000 for players and ~ $6000 for recorders) were microprocessor controlled - the Pacific Recorders and Engineering (PRE) Tomcat machines of the 1980s.
