About vinyl. About the plates

There are not so many good stories with a happy ending in our lives. One of them is the history of gramophone records, or “vinyl”.

Be that as it may, an engineer will most often make comments on certain aspects of the recording, the music itself, and information. If we are talking with a producer, then, as a rule, he is responsible for the details of the recording. But more often than not, an engineer plays this role.
