Transfering Meduims
« on: January 24, 2011, 11:40:49 pm »

What could be a feasible way the convert a 48bit or MP3 recording to vinyl record? IS it possible as the mediums are so different to begin with, is it going in the wrong direction? Thoughtson what could be utilized

Well, you can convert from anything to anything, but the quality may suffer. How much? You'd have to try it and see!

Try a mastering engineer that does vinyl, and see what happens. Here in Phoenix, Roger at SAE was still cutting vinyl masters last time I was over there:

I've cut mp3 sources to lacquer. There is nothing that inherently would prevent this. The roll off above 15k actually helps in the transfer.

I've found, with the very little research that I've done with mp3's that 128 and 192 kbps mp3's roll off around 15-16k while 256 and 320 kbps mp3's roll off around 18k.

Audio is a "game of inches" with each "inch" being exponentially more expensive than the inch before... be it in the cost of the hardware or the cost of storage... which makes the 15-16kHz rolloff vs. an 18kHz rolloff make sense to me.

Peace.
