HOME VINYL RECORDER

vision


Since the invention of record discs in 1889, mankind has been dreaming of a simple but precise desktop machine which would enable anybody to produce their own quality records with just the push of a button. Since the 1930s several machines were introduced to the market that all failed to reach a broader audience, mostly due to poor sound quality, overly complicated technical handling or unaffordable pricing.

2019, more than 70 years later, vinyl records are celebrating a surprising worldwide comeback but still their production is still locked up inside of high-tech, high-volume pressing plants. But as we know technology exploded in many fields opening up the incredible opportunity to finally re-think and re-invent record production. This is exactly what we did together with a small team of globally acknowledged experts:

Today introducing the PHONOCUT HOME VINYL RECORDER.
A simply revolutionary precision machine, to finally introduce a new chapter of record production by reducing it to 3 simple steps:

1) Place the Vinyl blank on the platter
2) Connect to the music input of your choice
3) Press the start button

Currently we are traveling LA, one of the world`s music capitals, with our sexy shining and fully functional PHONOCUT HOME VINYL RECORDER prototype for a whole series of first PHONOCUT recording test sessions. Surprising not only true professionals and high end studio owners but basically all music lovers with all the opportunities this machine opens up. Allow us to take us with you on our first adventures.

Adventure No. 1

A direct to disc recording session with Alex Lilly at one one of the most iconic studios in LA. Please have a look at the images below and please dive into the magic sound files and compare the digital file of the recording with the pressed vinyl we traditionally produced from a cut performed at a legendary Scully lathe valued at several 100k with the record we directly cut on Vinyl with our brave little PHONOCUT machine.

Adventure No. 2

PHONOCUT Vinyl Home Recorder presentation and testcut at the brand new studio of our amazing friends from KCRW Radio. Bringing back the good old days when all radio recordings were directly cut and archived on records.

Adventure No. 3

One of the maybe most important facts about the PHONOCUT is that it allows to expand the classic mixed tape concept to vinyl. Enabling you to create your very personal real vinyl compilations from your virtual playlists.

Adventure No. 4

On Monday, October 14 attending journalists and Making Vinyl attendees are invited to view PHONOCUT in person at PHONOCUT’s demo suite at Making Vinyl. You can get your ticket to Making Vinyl at MakingVinyl.org.
