We cut on 2 heavily modified Neumann VMS70 cutting lathes with new and much improved cutting amplifiers (SAL74C) and SX74 cutting head. Numerous modification resulting in a much shorter and cleaner audio path. We also have state of the art pitch computers installed for longer and louder cuts. Our lathes are fully automated for 100% accurate duplication. We offer tricks like: Inside-out playback, locked grooves/loops and laser engraving. 24Mastering cuts can be identified by "24M" in the leadout groove
There are 2 ways to produce a vinyl record.;
1) The first and usual way is to press records at a pressing plant. In this process, we cut 2 master lacquers (1 per side). A lacquer is a metal plate with a thin layer of nitrocellulose. From these 2 lacquers the metal stampers are created, which fit into the press. Heated vinyl is pressed in between them pressing the grooves into the record. Since cutting master lacquers, making stampers and installing them into the press is time consuming and costly most pressing plants won't bother doing this for anything less than 100/150 copies.
2) The second way to create a vinyl record is to cut the grooves directly into a vinyl record. This is what most people call Lathecut record or One-Off record. Because each record is cut one by one there is no minimum quantity. We are one of the very few companies in the world who uses the same machine that is used to cut Master Lacquers (modified Neumann VMS70). The sound quality is therefore much higher and simply incomparable to others offering lathecut records. To be clear we cut both Master Lacquers AND Vinyl but we do not press records ourselvesl!
