  • Australia to get it's first new Vinyl Pressing plant in 30 years!

    It looks like the growth in vinyl record sales shows no sign of slowing, with Sony recently opening a new vinyl pressing factory. Now local artists and audiophiles alike will have a new, modern pressing plant in my home town in Melbourne, Program Records. The new facility boasts WarmTone presses that can supposedly print a vinyl record in 30-seconds! They will also be producing 140 and180gm vinyl. Here is their official press release. Good signs!

      On one page, they said full pressing capabilities not available until,mid-2017. Do you know any more? Their Facebook page is dead. And no mention of the presses that I can see. So recycled old presses?

      Not much. I know there was a lot of media surrounding this last year. Yes, old presses. Like many of these ventures, the pr seems to be putting out feelers for investors / partners

      I didn't buy many but the EMI Australian releases weren't real good. Even the Coroboree that HP raved about. Have no idea why that was on his list. Other than the music but the sound was meh... The upper octaves were missing.

      I have a long memory and quite a lot of Aussie pressings. Aussie artists pressed in AU generally sound great. Many overseas artists pressed locally sound like crap as we were given crappy masters.

      EMI pressings in the early 80's are superb with the maxicut mastering technique. the 20th anniversary Sgt Peppers red vinyl sounds excellent. Playing another now - Aussie Crawl - Sirocco.

      Festival pressings were always good although their all tube vinyl mastering was slightly on the warm side than aggressive.

      CBS pressings were generally pretty crappy - although Midnight Oils, Red sails in the Sunset sounds amazing pressed at CBS.
