the easy record maker uses a recording stylus that engraves sounds onto five-inch plastic disks. all you have to do is plug in an auxiliary cable or USB and play audio from your phone or other device. the cutting arm then receives sound vibrations and engraves the blank plastic three to four times within a single millimeter. once the record is cut, users can instantly listen back to their recording through the tone arm and inbuilt speaker.

‘designed with universal usability in mind, the compact unit has a simple interface and is able to cut blank vinyl discs and play them back instantly,’ says a project description on yuri suzuki’s website. ‘this is the first time a record cutting machine has been readily available to purchase at a consumer level, and is aimed at both the seasoned record collector, as well as those first venturing into the world of vinyl.’

in standing with gakken’s educational and publishing background, the machine will be accompanied by a magazine detailing its design and background, as well as giving its diverse audience an insight into the vinyl cutting process. suzuki will also be presenting a live demo on IGTV on friday 3 april.

the unit functions at either 33 or 45 rotations per minute (rpm), and is supplied with 10 discs of blank vinyl, with more readily available to order online. the instant record cutting machine is currently available in japan and will be available to buy in the uk and the us after nationwide launches later this year.
