An ingenious design that allows you to create your own vinyl records with a touch of a button.
With the recent comeback of vinyl, we’ve seen a lot of new turntables that blend both state-of-the-art technology and sleek design. Now, a group of audio engineers, lathe experts, and entrepreneurs have come together to create something different. Named Phonocut, this innovative precision machine allows you to cut your own vinyl records at home. The system has the approximate size of a standard turntable and features a lathe and a diamond stylus cartridge.
Without requiring any technical knowledge, Phonocut allows the user to create records in an easy as well as efficient way. It comes with 5 blank vinyl records included in the standard package. The user only needs to place a blank vinyl on the turntable, connect the audio source via the 1/8″ stereo mini jack, press the start button to start the recording, and then press it again to stop recording. Each vinyl record side can fit about 10 to 15 minutes of audio, depending on the audio’s sonic profile.
Phonocut suits many uses, from creating mix tapes to cutting original records and making test cuts of studio recording sessions. Launched through Kickstarter with a successful campaign that has more than doubled the initial goal, Phonocut will ship to backers from December 2020. The campaign ends on November 15, 2019.
