    Thanks Bro, I watched Parts 1 & 2. I've seen this process before but not presented like that. Pretty cool. . . just one thing, no mention of the mold release compounds that are used between the stampers and the actual record.

    That was really cool. I had read about the process before but had never had the chance to see it.

    Thanks for posting it!

    I would love to get the disc after the silver is sprayed on it. That looked really cool.

    I have read at many places that mold release compound is a Myth in modern pressing plants, and is no longer used. Usually this is coming from people who claim cleaning a brand new vinyl is useless. I have no expereince in this area as I havent baught a new LP yet.

    Wouldn't you be needing a special Stylus for silver disc?

    I wish that were true. Guys like Mikey Fremer say differently. I won't chance it, I don't want anything being fused to my grooves, new record or not.;)

    They said they throw away the original after coating with metal and peeling it off. So I guess they make a new original each time? Very cool!

    There is another thing about that vid that got me a little squemish. . . they were handling everything with their fingers. . . how many articles have we read that discuss the evils of finger prints and human excreated oils on vinyl???

    Nothing wrong with fingers so long as they are clean.

    There is always a difference between how things are handled in production side vs. the user side. It is the same as some audiophiles swear by use of very exotic cables, where as, the source material they listen to, has been produced using good quality regular cables.

    OOOOeeeewwwww boy you are opening up a can of angry worms!!!:D ;) :p

    I have quite a few audiophile pressings from the 80s where nothing but the highest end cables were used in the master taping process. As a mattter of fact I have a couple of recordings from Sheffield Lab, Amanda McBroom where they used the highest priced cables and wires for the direct to disc recordings. I also have an Amanda McBroom recording where nothing but the highest Monster Cable were used in the microphone to direct to disc process.

    So hold on there brother I would have to disagree with your statement. Maybe for the mass produced records they've used "good quality regular cables" but I don't believe that is the case with special audiophile projects.

    I heard lard is best for the super heated mold release compounds. It has a high smoke point so none of it would be fused to the new record, this is one problem however, everytime I bought a new record I would have an overwhelming desire to eat the darn thing. :D :p
