Dangerous Music CUTTER Vinyl Mastering Transfer Console

Vinyl cutting transfer console with all-analog Mid-Side matrix and transparent routing, and with outputs especially designed to feed a lathe

MFR# MASTER CUTTER

Product Description

As vinyl makes its resurgence, cutting is becoming a required service in many mastering rooms. Thus Dangerous are offering the new Dangerous Music Cutter, a version of their proven MASTER transfer console with its incredible all-analog Mid-Side matrix and transparent routing, now with outputs especially designed to feed a lathe.

A lathe requires two identical but separate stereo signals from the final output stage, one to feed the preview computer that determines the size and shape of the groove to be cut, and one to feed the cutting head. The CUTTER accomplishes this seamlessly and is one of the only modern devices to do so. We look forward to providing tools for the new generation of cutting engineers.

HOOKING UP WITH THE LIAISON

If the three insert points aren’t enough to handle a more elaborate mastering rig, you can use the MASTER in conjunction with the powerful Dangerous Music LIAISON to patch in even more analog equipment at the touch of a button. For example, by inserting the LIAISON’s two stereo busses onto two of the MASTER’s insert loops, you’ve expanded from three to seven stereo inserts while simultaneously introducing analog-domain parallel processing, button-enabled signal rerouting, and instant patch recalls. You’ll get the speed and ease of digital-style recall from your analog gear.

INVESTING IN THE ANALOG SOUND & WORKFLOW

While some engineers are willing to run their mastering processes digitally – or “in the box” as the familiar phrase goes – the top professionals all rely on analog mastering equipment to achieve truly successful final production masters. When you purchase top-shelf analog equipment like the MASTER, you’re making an investment that will last your entire career. Because there’s no operating system, plugins, DAW or computer to become incompatible and, thus, obsolete, your analog gear will never require expensive upgrades. As one of the centerpieces in your mastering studio, the MASTER pulls all of your analog investment pieces together into an elegant “mastering rig” with a workflow and sound quality previously only known to those able to pay tens-of-thousands of dollars for custom mastering consoles.

  • Hand built in the USA with the best components possible
  • Legendary Chris Muth circuit design with pristine audio quality
  • Stepped controls throughout
  • Transparent and silent operation
  • Seamless connection with the Dangerous LIAISON
  • Integrated Mid/Side processing

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
