Dangerous Music CUTTER Vinyl Mastering Transfer Console
As vinyl makes its resurgence, cutting is becoming a required service in many mastering rooms. Thus Dangerous are offering the new Dangerous Music Cutter, a version of their proven MASTER transfer console with its incredible all-analog Mid-Side matrix and transparent routing, now with outputs especially designed to feed a lathe.
A lathe requires two identical but separate stereo signals from the final output stage, one to feed the preview computer that determines the size and shape of the groove to be cut, and one to feed the cutting head. The CUTTER accomplishes this seamlessly and is one of the only modern devices to do so. We look forward to providing tools for the new generation of cutting engineers.
HOOKING UP WITH THE LIAISON
If the three insert points aren’t enough to handle a more elaborate mastering rig, you can use the MASTER in conjunction with the powerful Dangerous Music LIAISON to patch in even more analog equipment at the touch of a button. For example, by inserting the LIAISON’s two stereo busses onto two of the MASTER’s insert loops, you’ve expanded from three to seven stereo inserts while simultaneously introducing analog-domain parallel processing, button-enabled signal rerouting, and instant patch recalls. You’ll get the speed and ease of digital-style recall from your analog gear.
INVESTING IN THE ANALOG SOUND & WORKFLOW
While some engineers are willing to run their mastering processes digitally – or “in the box” as the familiar phrase goes – the top professionals all rely on analog mastering equipment to achieve truly successful final production masters. When you purchase top-shelf analog equipment like the MASTER, you’re making an investment that will last your entire career. Because there’s no operating system, plugins, DAW or computer to become incompatible and, thus, obsolete, your analog gear will never require expensive upgrades. As one of the centerpieces in your mastering studio, the MASTER pulls all of your analog investment pieces together into an elegant “mastering rig” with a workflow and sound quality previously only known to those able to pay tens-of-thousands of dollars for custom mastering consoles.
