We can cut with Half-Speed mode for extreme absolute performances, but this requires 2 to 3 times the standard cut work, so it must have additional studio costs.
At Half-Speed we can cut easily wide frequencies up to 36kHz and more with extreme dynamic and superb sound.
With half-speed technique the groove will be cut much more accurately, deeply and the cutting system works much more less than half of its possibilities, so the trebles will be extremely defined, the bass will be more stopped and deep. In this mode high volume levels are possible; the same accuracy would not be possible in the normal mode.
If we have the time, we cut in this mode automatically without any studio-time additional charges, especially for lacquer mastering.
Superb extreme performances are possible doing so, but we must spend much more time to do it.
