Now you can make your own vinyl records from the comfort of your home or music studio with the Easy Record Marker created by Yuri Suzuki.
Yuri Suzuki is a Japanese designer and musician who collaborated with Japanese Publishing and Toy Company, Gakken.
The recording stylus on the mini record maker engraves sounds onto 5-inch plastic vinyls. Simply plug an auxiliary cable or USB from your phone, laptop, tablet or any electronic device that plays sound. The arm attached is used for cutting. It engraves the sound vibrations onto the vinyls. Once the record is cut, you can listen back to the recording through the tone arm and built in amplifier.
This is smaller than the standard 7-inch, 10-inch and 12-inch records found in most record stores. Most standard record players, if not all, will not be able to play the 5-inch records. Fortunately, the Easy Record Maker, both cuts and plays the records you create. Suzuki has a live tutorial available to demonstrate how the record maker works.
The easy record marker functions at 33 or 45 (RPM) or rotations per minute. It comes with 10 blank vinyl discs. It is available in Japan and will be available in the UK and the US by the end of this year.
