Watch The Vinyl Factory’s short film on the art of vinyl mastering – by FACT Magazine

The Vinyl Factory’s new short film profiles three of the finest minds in mastering.

Practically everything that is pressed to vinyl passes through the hands of a mastering engineer, who oversees the transition from tape, CD or MP3 onto the master disc or dubplate that will then be sent to the pressing plant for wider production.

Our friends at The Vinyl Factory tracked down three of the world’s foremost mastering engineers for a short film, Sculpting Sound, that looks into their role in the increasingly threatened vinyl manufacturing process.

The filmmakers join Andreas ‘Lupo’ Lubich at Calyx Mastering in Berlin, renowned for its attention to detail in cutting some of the most demanding avant-garde records around, and visit Rashad Becker of Berlin’s Dubplates & Mastering as well Noel Summerville (formerly of Pye Studios and Metropolis, now running his own 3343 Mastering studio) in London.
