What difference does the vinyl size make?

Updated 5 months ago by Support Team

There is a difference in the length of the audio that you can cut into the vinyl.

See below for our recommended length of recording for various formats of the disc and types of recording (informative values for one side of the disc).

*Try not to exceed the maximum recommended playing lengths per side for more than 10%, as longer playing times will lead to a dramatic decrease in recording level and dynamics. Please also note that, the requirements of extremely high recording levels decrease the possible playing time.

*Try to avoid 7" vinyl formats at 33 1/3 RPM as the possibilities of the recording and reproduction are most limited at this format. If there is no other solution you have to take into account that the final product will be in some way compromised (Low groove speed limits the recording level and causes a higher decrease of the high frequencies into the middle of the record and can also cause higher distortion levels).
