These records were cut on an Epilog 120 Watt Legend EXT to a theoretical precision of 1200dpi (the kerf of the cut and some tricks I used to avoid crashing the laser cutter dropped the actual precision down by ~1/6). The audio on the records has a bit depth between 4-5 (typical mp3 audio is 16 bit) and a sampling rate up to about 4.5kHz (mp3 is 44.1kHz). So far I’ve successfully cut audio on wood (figs 1-2), acrylic (figs 3-4), and paper (figs 5-6), and I’m sure there are many more materials that would work. I wrote the Processing sketch that generates the record cutting paths so that it can be modified for any song, material, cutting machine, record size, and turntable speed (skip ahead to download the code and learn how to make your own records).

I said that if i got to 6000 likes i’d reveal my ‘lever scratch’ technique. It’s not brain surgery but here’s how i did it:
On the base of the tone arm there’s a small screw which determines the height of the rest that the lever moves up and down to raise the arm. Just lift the lever to the top then turn the screw a little until the needle skims the record. Use a skip proof record and the movement of your hane moving the vinyl plus the transforming the lever causes the needle to bounce up and down on the record in time, causing the quick stuttery cutting sound. boom, the lever scratch.
Now if any of u feckers win DMC off that shit then you owe me a gold turn or at least a bloody jacket!!!
Die Modelle der Expedit-Reihe des Schwedischen Möbelhauses sind die besten Freunde des geneigten Plattensammlers. Das hat nun wohl auch mal IKEA geschnallt und befasst sich hier mit eben dieser Zielgruppe.
Look at how we helped Harry organise his passion for more than 4500 records and make room for his family life. If you could do with some help storing your things, maybe some of the solutions we used for Harry might help you too.
