    It seems purchased recording plate. Easier it would be if you use a cylinder. That's what Edison May was a cylinder, not the plate. It is easier for implementation.


    This here is like watching listening and not recording.

    This is similar to the old Edison phonographs. I am curious to know what you use to spin the record. AC motors could use the cycles in alternating current to time the rotation speed. I looked for any kind of motor, but am wondering if you spin the record by hand.
