What is AnalogMagik?

AnalogMagik is a Windows based turntable cartridge calibration software designed by Richard H. Mak and a team of engineers.  It offers a scientific and repeatable method of calibrating every cartridge setup parameter, including:

 

  1. Turntable Speed

  2. Azimuth

  3. Vertical Tracking Angle / Stylus Raking Angle

  4. Anti-Skating

  5. Optimizing Phono Stage Loading

  6. Optimizing Phono Stage Gain Setting

  7. Vertical Tracking Force

  8. Measuring Vibrations

  9. Determining Resonance Frequencies

  10. AES Wow & Flutter

 

After you have performed a basic alignment on your turntable's cartridge using an appropriate alignment tractor, our software and Test LPs will attempt to optimize and fine-tune all the above setup parameters to achieve a more accurate analog cartridge setup.

 

AnalogMagik - Not Just An Ordinary Distortion Analyzer

 

If you own hardware based distortion analyzers or computer based Oscilloscopes & Spectrum Analyzers, why do you need AnalogMagik?    

 

Any distortion analyzer can compute data, you can probably duplicate some of our test functions using the myriads of computer and hardware based analyzers out there.   Many of them are free. However, all of them will lack the most important thing:  the complex algorithm, proprietary filtering and mathematical averaging required to analyze data coming from the TEST LPs designed to work with our algorithms.  Knowing how to interpret such data in a meaningful way, is a very difficult task.       An ordinary distortion analyzer does not have the appropriate filtering to deliver consistent and repeatable results.    Just throw in a slightly warped record and your results will be off.

 

AnalogMagik contains proprietary complex algorithms built into the programming and specific settings to account for the following:

 

  • a proper sampling rate

  • a proper sampling period

  • complex filtering for noise, clicks & pops, and statics

  • complex mathematical averaging

  • incorporate the effects of warp records

  • mathematical standard deviation

  • eliminate the detrimental effects of line electric noise

  • eliminate the effects of hum

 

The complex programming will greatly improve the accuracy and consistency of the results, which an ordinary distortion analyzer will not do for you.   We have spent thousands of hours perfecting the special algorithm specifically designed to work with the signals on our test LPs.  The tracks on the LP are also strategically located at certain locations optimized for certain signals. 

 

In our laboratory, we have utilized $ 35,000 laboratory grade hardware distortion analyzers to perform the same tests, but the results are less stable and less repeatable than AnalogMagik, because the trick lies in the proprietary mathematical algorithms.   Without them, you can spend hundreds of hours with an ordinary computer analyzer simply to establish a correlation.

 

In other words, we have done the hard work so that you won't have to.
