Tickets For Doomsday - A discussion of a reissue from capture to shrink-wrap

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Given the resurgence in vinyl popularity and a burgeoning industry of reissue labels both large and small, Tickets for Doomsday presents a case study of a reissue sourced from vinyl and released on vinyl. Remastering from vinyl is necessary when the original masters have been lost (or taped over) and the only sources available come from commercially released records. This panel will cover optimal capture of the vinyl source and restoration and mastering of the digitized material in preparation for a vinyl release. We will discuss aesthetics of declicking and restoration, balancing historic and contemporary aesthetics, and preparation of the masters for the manufacturing process, from cutting to plating to getting freshly pressed records into shrink wrapped jackets.
