Ok, so I installed Windows 7 and it’s been a mess getting all of my previous settings back in order for record ripping. I think it’s all sorted out but if you encounter any problems please let me know so that I can get the fixed ASAP.
One curious thing I did notice about this disc is how off-center the hole is on the record. This caused the needle to sway back and forth like an Alaskan crab fishing vessel while the record spun, which was quite a sight to see. Luckily, my Technics SL-10 is a zero tracking error champion so it didn’t affect the playback. However, I wonder how it would fare on a more rudimentary turntable.
Despite this I recommend picking up a hard copy from Drag City at this link. Just make sure you have your tonearm set up right.
