It's an audiophile/real DJ's dream come true - being able to cut your own vinyl right in your own home, without paying upwards of $10K for a machine. You would be able to lay a track down in your studio, cut it on vinyl, and then play it in the club that night, keeping that warm vinyl sound and authentic DJ aesthetic.
Well Australian inventor Paul Butler Tayar is looking to make this a reality with his Desktop Record Cutter (DRC) now in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign. He and his Machina Pro team are trying to raise $10,000 AUS to drive the price point down of the DRC to $6500 AUS at it's highest. The more money raised, the less the price.
The goal amount reached will dictate pricing,” notes Tayar on their Kickstarter page. “This is the most exciting part to us, if we all get involved, we can make the DRC more attainable for everybody.”
According to the Kickstarter, the funds raised will be used to purchase infrastructure that enhances the feature set and brings the final cost down. 100% of pledges will be used to expand infrastructure and expand the DRC.
