The ULTRA LP – new features for vinyl records

This is interesting, new tech and new features to an old format, vinyl-

  • 180 gram vinyl
  • 2 vinyl-only hidden tracks hidden beneath the center labels
  • 1 hidden track plays at 78 RPM, one plays at 45 RPM, making this a 3-speed record
  • Side A plays from the outside in
  • Dual-groove technology: plays an electric or acoustic intro for “Just One Drink” depending on where needle is dropped. The grooves meet for the body of the song.
  • Matte finish on Side B, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record
  • Both sides end with locked grooves
  • Vinyl pressed in seldom-used flat-edged format
  • Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record
  • Absolutely zero compression used during recording, mixing and mastering
  • Different running order from the CD/digital version
  • LP utilizes some mixes different from those used on CD and digital version
