How to Press Your Own Vinyl Records

Saturday February 06, 2016 Written by Ronan

Ever since everything went digital back in the '90s, piracy has basically become a fact of life.

That's mostly because making digital copies of things is so damn easy. But what if your lust for pirated media coincides with an analogue fetish? What if it's duplicate vinyls you want, not MP3s? What then?

Well, it turns out you don’t actually need to own a large-scale vinyl press to copy your own records. If these instructions from Synth Gear are to be believed, all you need is a wooden frame, some silicon rubber, a little resin, and – of course – a legitimately purchased vinyl record. (We’re no law firm, but it does seem to be legal in Australia to make a backup copy of something you already own. Obviously you’re going to want to consult an IP specialist before you start doing this.)
