Adam Gonsalves  Mastering and vinyl cutting engineer in Portland, OR. Music, reading, and falling off my bike.

The little pancake reels are adorable.

Sleep's 'The Clarity' 12" single is available again with a new vinyl master/cut done here. Sick B-Side etching of the Hasheeshian astronaut by David D'Andrea.

Thrilled that the expanded reissue of Elliott Smith's 'Either/Or' has been announced. Mastered from original source for MFiT and vinyl under the guidance on Elliott's archivist, recording partner, and friend Larry Crane. 2xLP with 7 unreleased songs. Such an honor to work on this. Out on @killrockstarsofficial

Sledcore - Portland side streets

Happy birthday @jdgesus . The kind of guy who will bring you NOS GP9 just because.
Good luck on your midlife crisis buddy! I hope the cats behave in that camper.

The book @michaelcina did about his work with @ghostly is really good.

A few records mastered and cut here recently

Regram from @thelastartful . Thrilled to have mastered and cut The Last Artful, Dodgr's excellent new album. Thanks for coming by Dodgr.

Original ATR100 top card - left. Modified card - right. Mod is transformerless with a cleaner & shorter signal path.

Lacquers go into the plating tanks (top) and come out as metal parts (bottom)

Cutting stylus change with the aid of a USB microscope. Chip tube to the left, stylus mounted on the right.

D/A analog section. Upgraded OpAmps on the right sound excellent.
