Here at Standard Vinyl our default mastering option is lacquer acetate mastering which includes up to 22 mins per side. For a small surcharge, we can extend any side up to 25 mins.
If your audio is over 25 mins, we recommend going with DMM (direct-to-metal mastering). DMM is ideal for audio that is over 25 mins per side. Let us know if this option suits your needs better!
This is our proprietary master cutting method, great for those on a smaller budget and looking for a smaller amount of records. This process has a few differences compared to lacquer or direct metal masters. The end result is similar but can have a bit more compression and slightly louder noise floor. 7″ records can fit a max of 5 mins per side @ 45rpm and 12″ records can fit a max of 20 mins per side @ 33 rpm.
Created from your cut master plates. These metal molds are what we use to make your test pressings and eventually your final order of vinyl records. Cool right?!
Every combo package includes test pressings shipped directly to you for review before we press the rest of your records. Brew up some of your favourite coffee or tea, pour some kombucha, and set the mood for reviewing your amazing talents on vinyl!
