Here at Standard Vinyl we offer both master cutting methods, lacquer and direct to metal (DMM) mastering. Our default is lacquer acetate masters but we can provide the option for DMM if that is what you prefer for your project.
Is our proprietary master cutting method and material, which is great for those on a smaller budget and looking for our smallest size run. This option is great for shorter length 7″ & 12″ records and are okay with a lower quality audio production. This process has limitations vs lacquer or direct metal masters. The end result is likely to have limited high frequency range, rolled off highs, audio requires more compression than standard, louder surface noise (pops & clicks) and a 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.
We do not offer our 10″ records with SVM masters.
