|Recording The Masters
In search of a pure analog way of getting our master tapes onto vinyl we announced in our last newsletter that we visited Record Industry, the biggest European vinyl pressing plant.
Recently, the MULANN Group announced the opening of a new analog tape plant in Lannion, France. MULANN carried the torch to Recording the Masters to reassure the future of analog audio tapes!
On January 2015, MULANN acquired the plant and expertise of the analog audio tapes production, with almost 100 years of history in magnetic tape manufacturing.
Like the philosophy of The Lullabye Factory they believe analog has a very important role in audio recording, besides the digital - pardon our French - solutions. Analog and Digital are the two sides of a coin, and the 21st century needs both of them.
The Lullabye Factory is of course very much interested in the process of manufacturing tape. Unfortunately it's not possible to visit the plant, because it is a chemical zone and it’s very protected.
Catherine was so kind to send us some pictures so that we could have an inside look.
They still produce Audio tapes in all widths and the formulas under their new brand "Recording the Masters". On their website they say: "Analog is our DNA". We love that! After our visit to Record Industry and this announcement we know for sure: Analogue Is The Future!
Thank you Gregory and Catherine and We look forward to Recording on Your Tapes Very Soon!
