Lathe Cut Vinyl Manufacturing. Lathe cutting utilizes the same principles of the disc mastering process. A flat plastic disc is fixed onto a Record Lathe. The cutter head inscribes analog sound into the blank disc. This is repeated one at a time to reach the desired amount of custom vinyl records. A high quality one cut vinyl is achievable without having to electroplate and press the groove. Short run lathe cut records can be manufactured successfully under one roof. Vinyl album sales are consistently growing each year. The pressing plants are inundated with high demand commercial projects. Even with the higher price tag, the revenue of a short run vinyl pressing barely offsets the cost of manufacturing. This makes it very difficult for independent artists to do a vinyl release.
Lathe-cutting recordings has been around for a very long time, as long as the format itself. At Smalltown America Studio, we were lucky to source a pair of forty-year-old ATOM A-101 machines rescued from a Karaoke bar in Tokyo.
