Half-speed Mastering involves a capturing process in
which the original recording master is played back at exactly half of
the recorded speed. A sequenced cutting lathe is then timed at exactly
half of the playback speed. This process allows twice as much time to
carve a groove that accurately represents the sound on the master tape.
Half-speed mastering allows for cleaner reproduction and also permits
extended high frequency response, extending into the ultrasonic region.
