Making vinyl records is a fascinating process and one rarely mentioned amongst stories of its revival in the press. Luckily for us, The Vinyl Factor has put together a mini-documentary on “the art of vinyl mastering”, with talks by mastering engineers and a look at how the process has actually changed over the years with the introduction of new technology. As the documentary explains, there are approximately 300 lathe cutters left in the world and with 6m records having been sold in the US in 2013 alone, that’s a lot of records being cut by very few machines.
