The Desktop Record Cutter is a device, developed by an Australian sound engineer and inventor, that makes it possible for home musicians to press their music onto vinyl records in mere minutes using turn-key stereo cutting technology. The machine is fully automated, making it easy to use for musicians who don't fancy themselves tech geeks. However, engineers and more tech-savvy folks can customize their device with upgrades and modifications.

The Desktop Record Cutter features a special integrated load cell that makes it possible to measure cutting pressure, allowing users to dial in different depths in order to cut in a variety of mediums.

The device is set to be priced at $6,500, which includes everything you need to begin cutting records immediately. A more consumer-friendly model is also being developed -- it will cost around $3,500.
