VINYL MASTERING

Lacquer cutting is the first necessary step in the production of vinyl records!

The next step is electroplating, which we also do in-house! It's a long and convoluted process, so please let us know if you have questions. We use a Neumann VMS-70 cutting lathe to cut all of our lacquers, which was built in 1973. We're one of only a handful of studios capable of cutting either from an analog or digital source.
