Super cool little collab between Yuri Suzuki, Jeff Mills and Japanese brand Gakken. Cut your own records using the vinyl blanks provided. Cutting machine also works as a lo-fi turntable with built-in speaker.
Now you can easily create your own records at home with the Gakken Toy Record Maker. These will create lo-fi records for your enjoyment.
Jeff Mills x Yuri Suzuki collaborated with the Japanese publisher Gakken to create the INSTANT RECORD CUTTING MACHINE.
Designed with universal usability in mind, the compact unit has a simple interface and is able to cut blank vinyl discs and play them back instantly. This is the first time a record cutting machine has been readily available to purchase at a consumer level, and is aimed at both the seasoned record collector, as well as those first venturing into the world of vinyl.
Consisting of a cutting arm as well as a playback tone arm, the machine is unique in its functionality. To cut a record, the user simply plays audio through the provided auxiliary cable or USB and then lifts the cutting arm onto a blank disc. Once the record is cut, users can instantly listen back to their recording through the tone arm and inbuilt speaker.
Yuri Suzuki and his team designed the machine's concept and interface, while Gakken took on a technical and manufacturing role. The machine will be accompanied by a magazine (printed in Japanese) detailing its design and background, as well as an insight into the vinyl cutting process.
