In recent years it has become more common that files destined for digital distribution (iTunes, Tidal, Spotify, etc.) find their way to vinyl release. During this session a brief description of digital distribution release formats and channels, as well as vinyl as a media will be provided. Mastering engineers will discuss differences and specifics of mastering for each of them, as well as commonalities. Discussion will be supported with playback of audio examples.
