The world’s best vinyl mastering.
That’s a big claim, right? “World’s best vinyl mastering?” But we back it up. Vinyl is back in a big way, but here at Masterdisk it never left. We’ve been cutting vinyl since we opened in 1973. We cut our lacquers on our Neumann VMS-82 lathe, using the BMW of cutter heads, the SX-74. It’s one of the most sought after vinyl-cutting systems in the world. And our expert cutting engineers are unparalleled in their technical knowledge and hands-on experience.
From the classics to the most cutting-edge new music, Masterdisk—and our chief mastering engineer Scott Hull— has the tools, artistry, and experience to bring your vinyl mastering to the level of the all-time classics.
There are two reasons to make vinyl. One is the simple marketing and promotion angle. It looks great and sells at the merch table. These sort of records can be made less expensively because the listener may not expect it to be amazing sounding.
The second is because it sounds amazing and you want your listeners to hear and react to your music on this medium. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune, but it does require professional oversight, high quality control, and a careful selection of mastering engineer, cutting engineer, and pressing plant. This is what we specialize in: the best possible sounding vinyl without compromise. Well coordinated to save unnecessary expense.
