Q: When will you be able to press my record?

A: We will be fully operational by early 2018.

Q: What size orders will you be taking?

A: We will be taking all sized orders and can handle any order, big or small.
Initially we will offer 12” in 140 gram and 180 gram.
We plan to introduce 7” + 10“ formats later in 2018.

Q: What is special about the record presses you’re using?

A: The new Viryltech WarmTone is a modern automatic press using the first ever integrated machine software for the record pressing industry. ADAPT control software provides powerful insight on machine performance and allows Program Records to provide consistent high quality and a fast turn around time.

WarmTone provides the fastest cycle time in the world, less waste, no manual intervention, modern reliability and real time business analytics.

Q: Where will you be located?

A: We are setting up in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. Have a peek at our Instagram for updates on the build! Once open we’ll be hosting events and launches at the plant.

Q: Can you do custom colour vinyl?

A: Yes! Easy. We also encourage artistic projects to experiment wherever possible.

Q: Do you offer cutting and plating?

A: We will be plating in house with brand new equipment and cutting on a mint Neumann lathe.

Q: What is the ordering process?

A: Just provide your mastered audio files (mastered for vinyl) along with artwork and we will do the rest! If you need help mastering for vinyl we can assist. We’ll first cut a lacquer master and then make the metal stampers needed to go into the press. We will then send you test pressings and artwork proofs. With the brand new machinery we will be able to turn projects around very quickly and efficiently.
