About

Vinyl Cutting — our mastering engineers have decades of combined experience in cutting vinyl and know how to get the very best from the format. As the format enjoys a well deserved resurgence, our specialism in professionally produced vinyl results in stunning sound quality which comfortably holds its own against CD and other digital formats. Half Speed Vinyl Cutting — vinyl cutting at half speed is a highly specialised process, and we are one of the few mastering studios in the world capable of this superior method of cutting. Both the playback system and the cutting lathe work at half speed, putting less stress on the vinyl cutter head. This produces a louder, cleaner cut which far surpasses what is achievable on a standard speed cut. Live Direct-To-Vinyl — a live, direct-to-lacquer vinyl cut is a truly unique undertaking in this day and age. It is a highly labour-intensive and intricate all-analogue process, harking back to the days before tape recording was introduced midway through the last century. Synchronised, simultaneous live performing, engineering, mixing, mastering and cutting of the record eliminates all scope for hiding behind any modern production techniques, and is not for performers faint of heart!
