3D Printer Helps Turn MP3 Files Into Turntable Records

There are devices that let you convert your old cassette tapes and vinyl into MP3 files, but now thanks to the power of 3D printing, it seems that you can now convert MP3 files into vinyl! Ok this is not strictly vinyl, but this is still great news for those who love collecting records, but are bummed by the fact that not all songs are released on the format. However it should be noted that since the MP3 format is of lower quality versus lossless formats such as FLAC, converting them to vinyl would mean an even further reduction of their quality, but if you have to have it for the sheer novelty, then perhaps you wouldn’t mind.

This is actually a project cooked up by Amanda Ghassaei who used a 3D printer and a technique which converted digital audio files into 3D-printable, 33rpm records. As Ghassaei herself has pointed out, this technique would result in the audio losing a lot of its quality, but as you can see in the video above, you should still be able to make out what the song is, although for the audiophile who is looking to pick up on every tiny detail, this probably isn’t the best idea for you guys. In the meantime check out the video above to hear how songs might sound like when converted from MP3 to vinyl, or head on over to Ghassaei’s website for the details.
