I'd have to go back and dig it up. It was quite affordable, as I recall.

Itís been a while like Pano said Iíll have to dig through old emails.

I think we will need a top notch mastering / plating facility as half the battle here is that mastering houses are nervous about the welfare of their pricey cutter heads cutting what we are asking for.

Again, weíll have to likely scale to harsh realities.

We can make up for some of the limitations in the software.

Pano / Scott Wurcer can you please list completely the desired plant / playing requirements as they stand presently as well as define what kind of tolerance is acceptable to that figure? I.e. what you wanted to propose to GZ and where you thought their counter offer might land?

There is a detailed answer from GZ back in post 671. Test LP group buy
Not sure how to proceed with the playlist, except to start up a dialog with them again. Maybe upload our test signals and have them tell us what they can do with them. They can also generate many of the signals we want, if we want to do that.

In March this year I had brief contact with "The Bakery LLC" re this Test LP. This is the off-shoot of the "The Mastering Lab" who mastered LPs for Sheffield Lab.


They were curious to hear more; url: The Bakery | Audio Mastering & Vinyl Mastering

"Thanks so much for contacting us through our website. Eric is available to master your record, and when you have a chance, please let us know more about the project specs...we're always curious.

Attached is a quote for all costs associated for the LP. In terms of the specifics pertaining the pressing of the album, we don't have any say in those matters so you will have to speak with your plant directly, however we can help with recommendations."


Might be worth it.


Kevin

I see why it's call the Bakery. The owner is Eric Boulanger.

Sure thing. Would love to hear what he has to say. We'd need to know what sort of levels and frequency limits he has. That might take a bit of back and forth.

Question, is the software and hence A/D mandatory or can a less sophistcated user still accomplish a setup using the planned tracks or some of them at least to dial in the setup?

In the old days there were some nice tricks left combining left and right plugs at the preamp switch to mono and a achieve a null etc...and other sort of manual and phyiscal steps with the right tracks accomplish most adjustments. I guess if we are depending on the software and analysis tools then it is a different skill level and tools requirement.

For example I own a scope but not the means to digitize my vinyl play back. so I could display left and right each on a scope chanel and invert or add them overlay them to to check symmetry, etc.

This project is certainly more complex than I thought, so kuddos to you guys for your perserverance to keep at it.

I would say that yes, there are tracks that would be useful to those who can't digitize. But using software and a soundcard will take you to another level. That's an important goal of this LP.
