VINYL RECORDING SERVICE

Here some practical considerations of recording to vinyl:
The recording  length is limited by the dynamic range of the signal. Below
some standard recording times  per format, it is possible to record longer
if the music permits this ( e.g. quieter sounds, only speech, little high
frequencies or loud basses ).
We'll  not  cut  signals  under  30Hz,  the  tonearm of a turntable has 
its resonance frequency at about 20 Hz, this can make the needle jump out of the
groove! High frequencies at high volume can pose difficulties aswell although
you  can  cut  this,  the  playback  needle will have trouble replicating it so
the sound can be distorted.
Phase differences in the low end (stereo effects) can cause certain
problems as well. Because of all this we need to do some checks and
possibly slight alterations prior to cutting something on a record!
To  protect  the  cutter head  we  use an elliptical equalizer on signals below
200 Hz and roll of the high frequencies from about 17kHz.

All records are delivered in a protective innersleeve, and with white labels at
no extra charge, we can also send you the labels unattached so you can print
and stick them on yourself.


For the moment we don't offer printing service for jackets (outersleeves). If you want
we can supply you with a white unprinted cardboard jacket.


12"  jackets are white, cardboard without centerhole and are0,50.
10" jackets are white, cardboard with centerhole and are
0,50.
7" jackets are white, cardboard with centerhole and are
0,30.
