A unique recording studio focusing on audio mastering and short run record production. Lathe cut records.

Mono LOFI Lathe Cut Records

Lathe cut records are made by 'impressing' the sound onto a plastic disc. They are cut in real time, by a real person. Because of the individual, custom nature of this process, the cost is higher per piece than pressing records. The upside of this process, is that any amount of records can be made. These records are great for limited releases, tour only editions, or kickstarter campaigns.
