PRESENTATION

"For many nostalgic music lovers, no medium can match the sound and feel of a vinyl record. As music went digital in recent decades, however, it seemed that vinyl albums could disappear entirely.

But the thin black discs that became icons of a golden age are making a major resurgence with young listeners and modern musicians. Increasingly, some of the world's most popular artists are releasing vinyl editions of new albums, and consumers can't seem to get enough".  CBC News 12-27-14

This presentation will focus on the unique considerations of the mastering process for vinyl, which unlike digital media, requires a comprehensive awareness of the physical medium and its constraints.
