Mastering/cutting a vinyl

Hello Howie,

I would like to know what is/was your approach/set up for cutting a record.
(How) do you process the signal from the preview head for the lathe's computer?
Do you ever use a digital delay instead of the preview head?
How do you manage changes between the tracks?
Did you ever make a "premaster" tape?

Thank you very much for doing this.

It's almost impossible nowadays to master an album from analog tape in the analog domain. You need a special tape machine with preview heads. The way records are made these days, it's very rare that one set of eqs will work for a whole record. It can be done though, and when it is, it's magical.
