what the hell has the world come to?

vrx-2000drop.gif

There have been many efforts by other manufacturers to capture the

attention of the world’s DJ’s with new formats and fancy gimmicks,

but the truth still remains:

Vinyl is the only real format for mixing DJ’s

With this in mind our best technicians have been

working all the hours available in order to produce a

machine with the specification that meets the demands of

professional DJ’s and recording studios.

The VRX-2000 is that machine.

DJ’s can record their own music to vinyl. The process of

getting new music onto vinyl for DJ use has now been made easier.

Various sounds and loops can be compiled to vinyl for

DJ’s to use in their sets. This will reduce the amount of

records needed in DJ battle situations. It will also allow

DJ’s to have their own personalized mixing tools made up of

specific sounds unique to the user.

The newest music on MP3, tape or CD can now be

utilized for DJ performance.

Our new specially developed vinyl has been designed

especially to withstand heavy DJ use, including scratching,

making this new format much better than standard acetates

or Dub-plates for DJ’s.

VESTAX VRX-2000: Vinyl Recorder

The VRX 2000 is a real time acetate cutting machine,

allowing any audio source to be duplicated on to vinyl.

Acetates allow DJ's to play exclusive tracks that are

not available in commercial quantities, or to record

original music from a mastered format on to one off records.

Scratch DJ's can record breaks and loops from other sources

and prepare their set on to one record. In DJ "battles",

this will enable quicker performance as the record will no

longer need to be changed. Any audio source such as CD, MP3,

tape or mini disc can be easily duplicated.

The most stunning feature of the VRX 2000 is the durability

of the records. Unlike traditional acetates that have a very limited

lifespan, the "blanks" used with the machine will last 90% of

the time as standard vinyl. This is due to the fact that the

VRX 2000 utilises a new plastic for the blanks called "Harmodisk",

which offers excellent reproduction quality and durability

previously unheard of. Blanks will be available through

Vestax VRX 2000 dealers, for around the price of an import 12" single.

Whereas in the past, the cost of cutting records in small

quantities has been quite expensive, the Vestax VRX 2000 will

offer a considerable reduction in price, as well as allowing a

larger amount of performers to cut one off records. Stores around

the world will offer the service of vinyl reproduction for the

cost of the blank with a "cutting charge", making it more accessible

for artists everywhere.

Needless to say, this new invention is causing a huge stir in the

dance music industry and will revolutionize the way DJ's perform,

however the VRX 2000 may also be the catalyst in seeing vinyl

re-emerging as a preferred medium for many recording artists.

Realistically its $5000.

Blanks will be about $10 each.

Doubt they will come down much as to avoid piratcy (sp?).

Great "idea" theorectically. Practicality not really.

If one could sell "burns" for lets say $30 each, one would have to make 250 copies to pay off machine and that does not include the needle replacements (and how much are those???)
