The STOCKFISCH DMM-DUBPLATE

A New Format: THE STOCKFISCH DMM-DUBPLATE

It’s always exciting when you go from an end product, such as a vinyl record, to its original source. Our DMM Dubplate does exactly that. In the process of pressing a vinyl record from an LP-master, a lot of sound details get lost. The DMM Dubplate is of course no alternative to a mass product such as the familiar pressed vinyl record. Still, this experiment is surely very insightful and highly enjoyable for ambitious listeners.

Our DMM Lathe cuts the audio into a copper plated steel disc. We normally use this process to create a 14" DMM-Master that is sent to pressing plants for the production of vinyl records. Our new DMM-Dubplate however, is about the same size as a regular vinyl record (though a bit larger, due to technical reasons). This makes it possible to play it on any record player and helps you bypass the loss in sound quality that is caused by the additional steps in the production of records, such as galvanic processes and the pressing of the vinyl.

The DMM-Dubplate avoids issues like pre-echos and crackling noises. The high purity phosphate-copper has very little groove noise and clicking noises are seldom. The tracking force of the tonearm can be left as is. Only one side of a DMM disc is recordable since the backside is not copper plated. Because every DMM Dubplate is unique, the client’s name will be handwritten on the label.
