Cutting your own vinyl is only something thats ever been dreamed of….well, until now! Subject to required funding, a desktop DIY vinyl cutting machine is almost ready for completion. The good news…..the funding (and more) is in!
Paul Butler Tayar and his team at Machina Pro wanted to raise AUD$10,000 to bring the Desktop Record Cutter to market. They hoped to “democratise the cutting process” with what they call a ‘turn-key’ stereo cutting system, which lets you simply plug in your audio and cut straight to vinyl.
Well…..the project has received AUD$33,953 (£17,900) of the team’s $10,000 goal. “I’ve barely stopped for air, but we are on schedule for release early next year,” the latest update states. “Focus for the last 8 days has been on sound (which has been refreshing)… the (analog) cutting path is half way there and the turntable system is 90% complete.”
The projected sale price for the machine is USD$6,500, but the more money pledged the lower the price will drop.
