Vinyl is back… on the front of Elysia's Vinyl Allstars

You'll definitely want to shell(ac) out for one of these.

Elysia is marking its 10-year anniversary with a limited run of vinyl-fronted modules, but you'll need to be quick as there are only 50 units per module available worldwide.

The brittle black stuff adorns the company's karacter, nvelope, xfilter, and xpressor 500 series modules. You won't need to worry about any scratches or warping to the record, though, as each vinyl front is mounted on a steel plate and powder-coated. And, of course, you won't want to use just any old bolts when fitting them into your studio, so each one is completed by a set of included lens head screws to match.

What we're not entirely sure of is what exactly is cut into each record used for the job, but we can tell you that the modules are available for sale now for £591.60 each. Check out the Elysia website for a list of dealers.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
