plays worse than plain black?
from some sound engineer types and producers on DSF ages ago. There seems to be a lot more coloured vinyl about nowadays too and it really doesn't sound any diffrent when I'm mixing between the two. Prob just depends on the pressing and materials rather than the colour. But then I'm no expert so who knows.
mixed/patterned especially. This is just my received wisdom from internet record nerds and/or peole who get records pressed so who knows?
i've heard lots of people say it's worse but have no real evidence to back it up.
I HAVE NO IDEA
anyway all of mine sounds fine. The only couple of records that I have that sound truly terrible are normal ones.
because there could be tiny/microscopic irregularities between the different colours ...

i'm going to read those tomorrow. Tonight i'm going to see Theo Parrish and he seems to bang on about sound quality all the time. And simultaneously people reviewing his records say they have poor sound quality.
so who knows
although there is a glow in the dark record which certainly does suffer in quality because of what its made from
I remember colour records being a bit hit and miss some time ago but now it doesn't seem to be much of an issue.
I have a load of deep house on both coloured (purple) and swirly (purple/blue) and it all sounds ace. Not that I've got any of those tracks on just black to see if its any diffrent but hell I'm happy.
Out of interest, what makes house music 'deep'? More bass? Or is it slower or something?
like funky house is another sub genre of house etc. Deep house tends to be a bit more soulful and maybe a little dubby can be kinda jazzy or funky too with lots of drawn out chords and stuff like that. Its kinda laid back at times. Its only really a vauge distinction mind the boundries in house genres are pretty small at times.
Coloured vinyl is often a repressing and rarely of a decent weight.
Remastered records are often black because they are trying to replicate the original release. Although there are probably some exceptions.
It's a bit of a gimmick in my opinion.
But it looks pretty cool and there's nothing wrong with wanting the record purely for it aesthetic qualities. I have a few myself, but audibly they are nothing special.
I mean as long as it doen't fly away then thickness and weight have nothing to do with the quality of sound the grooves only go so far.
it would be less likely to warp.
even thinnest and the shittest of stored records will take ages to warp. unless you get a blow tourch on them and they get all melty.
where the whole disc is covered in a photograph. Plays beautifully.
I generally ask Boomkat to switch it to black if it's am initial limited run on colour nowadays.
But I get the impression from stuff I've read on the internet in this thread that there could be, but I'm no expert so who knows.
