VINYL PRODUCTION

Many people have asked us how we prepare the masters for our vinyl so.....
Making the best quality vinyl isn't just about transferring an album onto record - getting the best possible results from our beloved format takes care, attention, and an intimate understanding of exactly how vinyl works.

The rich, organic feel and warmth that you hear in a great record comes from a good vinyl cut. Many masters are not suitable for vinyl, as today's modern digital music formats such as compact disc work in a very different way - and this is why we take the time to have them expertly re-mastered for vinyl production. Whether it means tracing the original quarter inch analogue tapes and rejuvenating them, or using a digitally re-mastered and enhanced version of the album - we do whatever it takes to get the very best sound quality out of every recording and to get the very best listening experience from all our releases.

A cutting stylus cannot cut the square waveforms found in many recordings, and would result in a terrible sound. The re-limiting process, individually tailored for every release, smoothes the wave peaks to produce a cut that brings out the colour of the original recording. Filtering the frequency extremes to more closely suit vinyl sound reproduction reintroduces energy to the signal at both ends of the frequency spectrum, and phase issues are rectified by slightly narrowing the stereo image – bringing clarity that would otherwise often be lost.

These highly skilled techniques have been developed over many years to bring the best possible sound to vinyl lovers, and are expertly applied to all our releases!
