Lacquer Mastercuts

© Caro Dentler

The duophonic studio

Our mastering studio is equipped with a Neumann VMS 70 lacquer cutting machine. This was extensively modified by Wilson Audio in 1993 to adapt it to modern requirements. Stan Ricker has already worked with Acoustic Sounds on this unique setup and has cut some outstanding records that are highly sought after by collectors!
Our estensive experience in vinyl cutting allows us to transfer your digital premaster to the analog medium of vinyl in an optimal way.

The duophonic sound in every pressing plant

We send our master cuts to all well-known pressing plants throughout Europe.
So if you appreciate our special sound but want to handle your pressing yourself, we will be happy to take over the lacquer cut for your production.

How much fits on what?

Simply put: The longer the playing time and the more bass in the sound, the quieter the record becomes. The left values refer to a loud cut record (+2dB – +6 dB), the maximum limit on the right is cut with a level of 0dB – +1dB. With longer playing times the record becomes quieter and the background noise increases.
