Today, I assisted the cut of the new single. Eschewing any digitising, the cut was 100% analog meaning that the grooves had to be “opened” manually without a preceding digital signal. Thanks to the expertise of Nick and Tim at Fluid http://www.fluidmastering.com/ the cut was amazing. This is really the best time to hear any recording. The lacquers have now being shipped to a manufacturing plant in the UK.I also cut 2 10” acetates. I will be holding on to one copy and the other…Well stay tuned for more information on this next month!
