Could this desktop DIY cutting machine be the future of vinyl?

Could this desktop DIY cutting machine be the future of vinyl? | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

An Australian inventor has launched a crowd-funding project for a tiny machine he says can cut vinyl records in minutes.

Paul Butler Tayar and his team at Machina Pro want to raise AUD$10,000 to bring the Desktop Record Cutter to market. They hope to “democratise the cutting process” with what they call a ‘turn-key’ stereo cutting system, which lets you simply plug in your audio and cut straight to vinyl.

Everything Old Is New Again – 3D Printer Makes Vinyl Records Out Of MP3s

Everything Old Is New Again – 3D Printer Makes Vinyl Records Out Of MP3s | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Making guns and electric guitars is pretty impressive, but it seems as though the current boom in 3D printing advancements has found found a proper use. Well, a proper, somewhat poetic use which is currently in beta stage. Researcher and Instructables DIY project site team member Amanda Ghassaei has discovered a way to use the technology to turn any MP3 into a fully functional vinyl record.

Why???

MegaMissioN's curator insight, January 21, 2014 7:17 PM

As you may know mp3's are nothing more than zeros and ones, so the thought of making something physical from such a minimal code I think this is pretty cool. As a music lover and collector of dope sounds, I appreciate advances in technology, especially for creative purposes. Amanda Ghassaei explains it as, importing raw audio data, performing some calculations to generate the geometry of a record, and eventually exporting this geometry straight to a 3D printable file format. 

Now before we all go HipHop Horray let me break down the pros and cons: http://bit.ly/1bgH8A2

What will happen of today's DIY distributors? Let's hope they won't turn into merger game for major companies.

My latest release is out on The Pirate Bay and I'm OK with it

My latest release is out on The Pirate Bay and I'm OK with it | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

The making of these compilations, with the aim to share them for free, appears to be more meaningful now than ever. When the old established music industry is desperately trying to prevent its empire from collapsing, blaming the wrong people for its decline, releasing free music is more than a friendly giveaway, it's a deliberate ethical move. Here's our choice: we either let the masses consider music as any industrial goods, or we try to remember there is more in art & music and see beyond copyrights and profit. Music is about sharing feelings, emotions, decibels. And this should remain priceless. Does this mean music makers should not fulfill their piggybanks ? Of course not, it's time we all create a new economical system working rather for the best interest of musicians than for industrial holdings.

Actually, I posted it up there myself.

How To Release an Album in the 21st Century

How To Release an Album in the 21st Century | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

A few days ago, I organized and ran sound for Amanda Palmer’s Kickstarter party.

Some of you may know Palmer for her work with her old band, The Dresden Dolls, for her solo albums on Roadrunner Records, or for her collaborations with her husband, the acclaimed author Neil Gaiman.

Those of you who haven’t heard of Amanda Palmer probably will this week. That’s because the final tally of contributions to her Kickstarter campaign exceeded $1 Million – roughly 4 times that of the next highest-grossing musical act to use the platform.
