The Phonocut is an analog vinyl lathe which makes vinyl records and costs $1100.
The machine cuts 10 inch vinyl records with 10 to 15 minutes of stereo analog audio on each side. The lathe can also cut 7 inch records. The blank records will cost about $10 each, but discounts will be available for quantity purchases. The vinyl records are as durable as commercial records. Any turntable will play these records. An audio machine with an 1/8″ stereo mini jack can be source. A wireless version is in development.
The Phonocut is approximately 14 x 12 x 10 inches.
The copyright laws apply to the records just as they do when you make a mix tape. Phonocut will pay artists a Private Copying Levy as a part of the sale of each PHONOCUT and PHONOCUT blank disc.
