What is a CDRecord?
CDRecords are ordinary CDs that have been made to work on a record player. Any CD/DVD disk will work, and they are fun, cheap, and easy to make.
How do they work?
A special cutting tool is used to cut grooves into the surface of a cd. this tool, called a record lathe, is made up of a needle, magnets, the coil from a speaker, and an small amp. when music is played through the lathe, the coil vibrates a needle that cuts a groove into the cd. when a record player needle goes back over the groove, it re-plays those vibrations and plays the music.
How do I make a CDRecord?
Dont wory if the above paragraph made no sense to you. you dont have to know the fine details of how they work to make one. All you have to do is follow the simple step-by-step tutorial that tells you how to build the lathe, and the demonstration video showing how to use it. All avaliable in the Tutorials section of this website.
How long can my recordings be?
That depends on how steady of a hand you have. Most of the ones made with the lathe tool usually record around 2 min. improvements are being made, but for now, thats all that will fit on a single cd.
