Vinyl—the cornerstone format of the music industry. Vinyl—despite the array of audio media formats that have come out since the LP, vinyl remains a vibrant format with a large (and growing!) fan base. Now that we find ourselves almost 15 years into the 21st century, how is the process of creating vinyl records changed? How is the equipment holding up after all these years? How hard is it to find media/supplies/parts for lathes still in use today? How has the approach to cuting vinyl masters changed (if at all) with the changes to delivered mixes (e.g., shrinking dynamic range, demands for longer side lengths, etc.)? This workshop will discuss the current state of the vinyl mastering industry, how it's adapting to the changing mix landscape, and thoughts on the future of vinyl.
