Loop cassettes are available in various lengths. These will work in 
any cassette deck, with the proviso that they are "single sided" - 
that is the cassette is constructed to run in one direction only and 
you can't flip it over or rewind it.

In my experience with loop cassettes I've found that there is 
invariably a dropout at the punch in/out point. Perhaps someone else 
has developed some techniques to circumvent this?
