The Best 7" Lathe cut sounding records
Embossed lathe cuts have been recorded on polycarbonate sheets of plastic for many years since the 1980's, most definitely, have earned a bad reputation since, because they were always embossed with a tungsten carbide stylus. Many have tried over the years different techniques to improve embossing, by using heat, Turtle wax, furniture polish, lighter fluid, motor oil, DW40, But I don't use any of that, I emboss dry, and at room temperature and it works great.
A lathe cut If recorded at a louder volume it will cause the record to skip randomly. The average level of a microgroove LP recorded at 33-1/3 rpm is the level I use for recording my lathe cuts.
Anti-skating should be adjusted for best results.
