DOWNLOADCARDS (TO REDEEM OR NOT TO REDEEM, THAT’S THE QUESTION)

DOWNLOADCARDS (TO REDEEM OR NOT TO REDEEM, THAT’S THE QUESTION)

As the popularity of download codes is not what it used to be and the percentage of redeemed codes by consumers went down to a percentage of around 10% on average, Record Industry has decided to stop offering this service. If you want to include a DL card anyway, please check https://www.procards.com .

We accept printed cards with a minimum size of 85 x 50 mm on 140 grams paper (or heavier quality paper) without extra administration costs or cards in pdf format (so we take care of printing). One of the advantages of Procards is, they support higher quality audio (so WAV instead of MP3) for those who are after this, besides that their system allows you to obtain information about redeemed codes direct from the Procards database.

 

RUN OUT GROOVE AND ABSOLUTE

RUN OUT GROOVE AND ABSOLUTE SOUND!

Nice coverage about one of our customers, the Vinyl-Only label Run Out Groove
Screen Shot 2019-07-25 at 10.55.55.png

Formed in 2017, Run Out Groove is a vinyl-only and fan-engaged music label. Each month music lovers vote to decide which title will become the next limited edition one-time pressing. An imprint of Warner Music Group, Run Out Groove has access to recordings going back several decades—in other words, a treasure trove of music. As a result, the label is free to wander far and wide stylistically, with genres as diverse as garage/punk (MC5, The Stooges), alternative rock (Morphine, Luna), folk (Judee Sill), soul (Betty LaVette, Solomon Burke), and jazz (Bill Frisell).

Along with reissuing record albums, ROG also includes, as the second disc of some 2-LP sets, rare, out of print, or previously unreleased recordings connected to the original album. Examples include expanded editions of Delaney & Bonnie’s Motel Shot and Baby Huey’s The Baby Huey Story. On a slightly different note, Professor Bizarre’s Funknology is split between choice cuts from Dr. John’s Atco LPs and some previously unreleased studio outtakes.

 

Run Out Groove also releases albums previously only available on compact disc, including Ministry’s Greatest Fitsand Bill Frisell’s Nashville. And it has taken on projects like Juliana Hatfield’s Only Everything, which in vinyl form was previously limited to a rare and out-of-print import. Most ROG long-players are double albums, and because CDs usually run longer than most two-sided LPs, the four sides the label devotes to releases that were previously CD-only help eliminate groove compression. Also, some releases consist entirely of previously unreleased material, examples being Morphine’s Live at the Warfield 1997 as well as a Judee Sill LP containing demos, alternate takes, outtakes, and live recordings.

Having established that Run Out Groove has the goods musically, we should also note that the label quickly established itself as a record company that combines a passion for music with high production standards. Where some labels feel impersonal, ROG establishes a strong connection with music lovers and consults with the musicians who performed on the albums. It also places an emphasis on quality and craftsmanship, and the stack of ROG releases I sampled for this article impressed me visually, sonically, and artistically. A veteran cratedigger, ROG’s director of content development, Matt Block, long ago developed an appreciation for the high production standards we associate with classic early LP labels, and he recently explained how that worked its way into ROG’s modus operandi.

“Attention to detail and quality seem to have taken a back seat to convenience and disposability,” he emailed, “so it was important to me that Run Out Groove differentiated itself by focusing on quality, detail, and creating records that collectors desired and could become cornerstones in their collections.”

Among other things, that involves taking the right steps to ensure that the sound is as good as possible.

“What I’ve learned in a short period of time is that the two most important factors in a record sounding good is quality of the source and the mastering,” Block said. “We strive to use the best possible source available to us for every title we do regardless of analog or digital.

“Luckily I found two mastering experts in Pete Weiss at Verdant Studios and Jeff Powell at Sam Phillips Recording Studio. Pete does the pre-mastering and Jeff cuts the lacquers on his lathe that was used to do Big Star records at Ardent Studios.

It was essential that ROG find a reputable pressing plant: “All of our raw vinyl has been produced at Record Industry in the Netherlands. They have great QC, always bring issues to my attention before something becomes a big problem and their turn times have been excellent.”

The packaging for ROG also stands out, and here again ROG found inspiration in classic labels from the early days of vinyl.

“Another important piece of the puzzle is the quality of the materials we use,” Block said. “I was determined to use paper-wrapped jackets like the kind used by Blue Note and Impulse back in the late 1950s and 1960s.

“So while most companies have shied away from the paper-wrapped jacket because of higher cost, we dove head first into it and have established a very nice relationship with Stoughton Printing Company that does the best old-style tip-on paper wrapped LP sleeves.”

While much of this article has focused on technical matters, the payoff for the attention to detail is ultimately emotional, as I was reminded after dropping a needle on the opening track of Judee Sill’s Songs of Rapture & Redemption: Rarities & Live and getting goosebumps. The sound was so vibrant and the sense of immediacy so undeniable that I imagined myself sitting in Boston Music Hall on October 3, 1971, the night the music was recorded. Heartfelt and passionate, sweet and soulful, Sill’s performance that evening deserved to be preserved according to the highest standards, and fortunately it was. Whether returning to an album they explored decades ago or hearing something for the first time, other listeners will have plenty of their own “wow” moments while exploring ROG’s discography.

Pressing Concerns: The new breed of vinyl pressing plant

¿QUÉ ES EL MASTERING?

¿QUÉ ES EL MASTERING?

Source: JUANMA EL 21. ENERO 2017 LINK

Tras componer, grabar y mezclar, el mastering es el último paso de la realización de un disco o una canción. Muchos no saben exactamente de que se trata, por eso vamos a ver a continuación los diferentes objetivos de este proceso determinante para la calidad final de vuestra producción musical.  


El principio

Una grabación debe de ser de la mejor calidad posible, para poder sonar bien tanto en tu iPhone como en tu minicadena o en una discoteca. El objetivo principal del mastering es la busqueda de un sonido óptimo a partir de la mezcla final, con tal de homogeneizar las diferentes pistas de un disco en cuanto a color y volumen.

Las herramientas 

Lo ideal es que el mastering lo realice un especialista con experiencia, dotado de unos oídos “frescos”, es decir, un técnico de sonido especializado, que no se haya pasado horas mezclando la canción o el disco. El archivo de audio estéreo creado a partir de la mezcla será procesado con varias herramientas como EQ, compresores, limitadores o expansores. Por ejemplo los desequilibrios del espectro de audio se “limpia” ciertas señales muy presentes y amplia otras con un ecualizador paramétrico.  La compresión y limitador se utilizan para ganar consistencia y mejorar la escucha del oyente que no tendrá que ajustar constantemente el volumen, en resumen homogeneizar las diferentes señales de una canción. La compresión y el limitador también se utilizan para inflar el volumen, el famoso “Loudness War”. Cuidado con no fusilar la dinámica de la canción queriendo sonar como en las grandes producciones. Una pequeña dosis de reverb puede servirnos para dar cohesión y homogeneidad a la mezcla.

Manley Massive Passive Mastering

Los estudios profesionales suelen disponer de más de una herramienta destinada al mastering y tratamiento acústico. Se suelen equipar de herramientas analógicas de alta gama especialmente para el mastering, como el ecualizador Manley Massive Passive o el compresor SPL Iron. Un compresor multi-banda como el Tube-Tech SMC B2 permite ajustes precisos gracias a sus diferentes bandas de frecuencias.

SPL Iron red

Todo un arte 

Hay a quien le puede parecer fácil a simple vista pero en realidad es todo un arte: los fades, el orden de las canciones del disco o los tiempos de silencio entre canciones se deciden con mucha seriedad. Las estándares de audio y la conversión de diferentes soportes necesitan configuraciones precisas y herramientas de calidad. No se trata solo cuando hay que llevar a fábrica un vinilo, sino también velocidad de muestreo, tramado y noise-shaping.  Un técnico de sonido especializado en mastering se equipa con herramientas como el Dangerous Music Liaison y los  conversores digitlescontrolador de estudio de alta calidad como el Crane Song SolarisCrane Song Solaris

¿Accesible a todo el mundo?

No tienes porque depender estrictamente de los servicios de un profesional del mastering para conseguir que desde tu home-studio tus canciones suenen bien.  La primera cosa a tener en cuenta es la acústica de tu canción que debes tener bajo control. Los monitores deben sonar lo más neutral posible, y estar adaptados a tu habitación.
No siempre es necesario poseer un equipo muy caro para darle un toque final a tus temas, hay muchos softwares que cumplirán con esta función, y que son utilizados incluso en estudios profesionales como plugs-ins UAD. Encontramos otros sets de plug-ins enfocados al masteringde muy buena calidad como el iZotope Ozone o incluso el IK Multimedia y el Slate Digital.

 

El mastering es un arte por si mismo, y es un paso crucial para que vuestras producciones musicales suenen bien. Conseguir un buen resultado no solo es cuestión de herramientas y tocar un par de botones. Paciencia, escuchar y comprender la música son algunas de los requisitos para un técnico de sonido especializado en mastering, y eso no viene en ningún programa ni plugin.  😉

Record Industry has been busy with the book that gives an insight of all of us who have the passion.

PASSION_FOR_VINYL_SIDE_VIEW

Brazilian superstar Ed Motta came to Holland to buy an apartment, but spent all his money on vinyl instead. When a young Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth discovered a scratch on his recently bought Bathory LP he demolished his bedroom. It’s Atlantic’s CEO Craig Kallman mission to own all relevant albums on vinyl. He has 750.000 already. That’s what vinyl does with music lovers.
In Passion For Vinyl a wide selection of DJ’s, musicians, label owners, designers, record dealers, collectors and engineers like Henry Rollins, Bernie Grundman, Hans Pokora, Chris Ellis, Steffi, Mala, Vaughan Oliver, Lee Dorrian, Jacco Gardner, John Dyer Baizley and many others share their unconditional love for vinyl. They muse about the first record that changed their lives, talk about their prized collectibles and explain why they were determined to keep vinyl alive. Passion for Vinyl also tells the history of Record Industry, the Dutch factory that has been pressing vinyl since the 1950’s.

PASSION_FOR_VINYL_SPREAD_2
This book is a tribute to vinyl, a format that is making a spectacular comeback recently, although for many music lovers it never really disappeared.

Passion For Vinyl is written by Dutch author, music journalist and incurable vinyl fanatic Robert Haagsma. With an introduction by American vinyl guru Michael Fremer.
