A new Kickstarter has launched that aims to let to cut your own records at home.
Phonocut is a new portable vinyl lathe, which only needs an audiosource and a blank acetate (although no details are given on the nature of the disc) to get started, according to Wired.
Working in realtime, the Phonocut uses a diamond stylus to cut the 10” vinyl records, with each sideable to hold between 10 and 15 minutes of audio.
“It has to be idiot-proof. Even I myself should be in a position to cut the records,” Phonocut co-founder Florian “Doc” Kaps told Wired. Among Phonocut’s production team is Swiss mastering engineer Flo Kaufmann, one of the last remaining lathe repair experts in the world.
