About the Event

Making an incredible vinyl record isn’t easy. It takes patience, attention to detail, craftsmanship and state-of-the-art equipment.

So, how are vinyl records made?

Viryl, innovative manufacturer of the WarmTone™ and LiteTone™ vinyl record presses, is giving you special inside access at this month’s AES member event on March 24th, 2020. Visitors to this exclusive session will get an in depth experience on mastering, plating, pressing, and packaging a vinyl record.

Think you’ve got what it takes to put it on wax?


Get behind the music in a whole new way on March 24th, 2020 at Viryl Technologies.

Chris Zaworski

Master's candidate, (John Vanderkooy, University of Waterloo)

Chris Zaworski is a Master’s candidate under the supervision of AES Fellow John Vanderkooy at the University of Waterloo. Chris has worked to combine a background in Physics and Astronomy with a love of music.

His research, in partnership with Viryl Technologies, is focused on studying the factors inside Viryl’s WarmTone press that influence the final audio quality of a record. Parameters such as vinyl temperature, press force and cooling all impact the sound of a vinyl record– however not much is known as to the how or why of this process. Chris’s research aims to fill in the gaps by varying conditions inside the WarmTone while pressing records to study the effect that these changes have on the sound of the finished product.
