You are a label or the artist with plans for a re-release of THAT sought-after record. No tape masters exist (if so – please use our archiving PRO option!). And you are the only person who has the vinyl in mint condition?
You are not sure about your abilities, but you are afraid of being the next one bashed in the online forums for releasing a poor vinyl rip?
Here is your solution!
digital recording directly from your delivered vinyl source exploiting this HQ professional signal chain:
- on request: FREE vinyl cleansing for dust-free, brighter, “more open” playback
(British “Into The Groove” cleaning liquid & micro fibre cloth)
- dedicated cartridges (brand-new for that very purpose)
Shure M44-7 (“warm” & bassy – recommended) or Ortofon Arkiv (more “HiFi” i.e. neutral)
- Technics SL-1210 turntable
- a matching Technics or award-winning Schiit Mani pre-amp
- Mytek A/D conversion at 24bit, 44,1kHz (recommended), 48kHz, 88,2KHz or 96kHz (please specify!) with the best clock on the market (close to jitter-free)
We leave at least 3 seconds of “silence” on the lead-in & lead-out groove for further digital restoration (de-noising measurements) and individual adjustments. We leave the same headroom on all ripped files instead of normalizing them – so you can retain the original relations of single tracks.
