psybient on vinyl / psychill on vinyl

Hmm I am not so happy about it to be honest. Desert Dwellers and a lot of others use these modern services which simply print vinyls out of your digital files, so there's not even a separate vinyl mastering process. It just the same as digital file but even worse as you need to turn around record every few tracks and it is more difficult to store it.

I would prefer them to do a specialised mixing and mastering and maybe even initial recording just for vinyl taking into account slightly different frequencies that vinyl record can play out better than or worse

i understand your point. are you sure they didn't do a re-master for last album on VINYL ?

i think Kalya did it for his release.

 

indeed it must be adapted for vinyl.

yes I am not 100% sure, so maybe I am wrong, but I vaguely remember seeing one of the west coast usa psy glitch artists mentioned they use this service (forgot the name) they basically do like a fast food on demand vinyl pressing. Now I also think that's what Bandcamp will do.

 

I have that Kalya Scintilla vinyl btw, it sounds pretty good :)

The vinyl master-cutting studios have their specifications which the audio files must met. A CD pre-master almost leads to unusable results if it isn't rejected in advance.

 

If a vinyl production sounds bad, the reason is either that a vinyl pre-master exists, but a bad one - or that the laquer cutter did a bad job.
