Seen At Popkomm: Ulrich Sourisseau And His Vinyl Recorder
A South-German inventor hits the "needle" on its head

We are currently in the lobby of the trade fair known as Popkomm. In front of us, there's a machine with a protruding pipe which, taking into account the container attached, somehow resembles a water cooler for a personal computer. A needle cuts grooves into a black blank vinyl record.

What is this?

Ulrich Sourisseau: This is a gadget for recording onto blank vinyl records. You can do the reverse of what you're normally doing, that is - you can transfer CDs onto vinyl records, from digital to analogue. It's not always bad to do the reverse of what others are doing. Our success proves us right.

Transferring recordings from digital to analogue, what does that sound like?

Ulrich Sourisseau: It sounds less "edgy". This is due to the fact that there cannot be any edgy grooves on a vinyl record. Of course, we have to admit that it cannot get any better than the master recording. If the master doesn't shine, then the vinyl record won't be well received either.

What do you call it?

Ulrich Sourisseau: This gadget is called Vinyl Recorder. You'll find a thorough description of it and how it works on our website. Here [on location at Popkomm], you can also learn about how it works: What looks like a water cooler is the suction pipe plus container for the cut-out material. The gadget cuts out the grooves, so to speak.

Truth be told, you've robbed a dentist's office!

Ulrich Sourisseau: No, no. All of this was developed in house. It's not like we've newly invented this. Vinyl recorders have always been around, and we have only taken it further, improved the electronics and packed it into one gadget.

How do you actually sell the Vinyl Recorder?

Ulrich Sourisseau: We sell via the Internet only. If someone wants to have a vinyl recorder, then they have to visit us in southern Germany, where he or she receives one day of training. We also have customers in Vienna and Austria.

What's the cost to purchase it?

Ulrich Sourisseau: First, you have to have your own record player. Without this, it [the vinyl recorder] does not work. The basic starter set goes for 3,200 euros, with accessories for 3,500 euros. It's a great investment, you'll get something that will last longer than life itself.

What's your experience with overseas sales?

Ulrich Sourisseau: As we speak, we've sold 3 gadgets overseas. You have to keep in mind that clients have to travel to Germany for training on the gadget. We already had an Australian client who came to us after travelling around the world to buy a vinyl recorder.

Does it come with a warranty?

Ulrich Sourisseau: Yes, of course - 2 years. This is, of course, not on wear and tear parts, like the needle or cutter head. However, I'm convinced that the machine will last longer than you will live.
