After 6 years of Research and Development, the "AnalogMagik All in One Analog Setup Software & Test LPs" is born. "A Scientific & Repeatable Method To Calibrate: Speed, Wow & Flutter, Azimuth, VTA, VTF, Anti-skating, Loading, Gain, Vibrations & Resonance Frequencies.

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:
Turntable Speed
Vertical Tracking Angle / Stylus Raking Angle
Optimizing Phono Stage Loading
Optimizing Phono Stage Gain Setting
Vertical Tracking Force
Measuring Vibrations
Determining Resonance Frequencies
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 help you optimize and fine-tune all the above setup parameters to achieve a more accurate analog cartridge setup.
Simply follow the onscreen instructions, and the program will guide you through all the test functions. It will also tell you what "optimal" numbers to look for, and what cartridge adjustments you need to make to get there.

About Richard H. Mak

Richard bought his first turntable in 1981 and his love for the vinyl format has been stuck with him ever since. In 2004, he started his blog which allowed him to meet audiophiles from all over the world. later turned into the Greater Toronto Area Audiophile Club. Richard is also a writer for various audio magazines, he has contributed articles at, TONEAudio, Part-Time Audiophiles as well as Mono & Stereo.    
Between the years 2005 and 2017, Richard decided to pursue his dream of perfecting turntable cartridge setup. He began setting up turntables for his friends, and words began to spread out amongst audiophile circles, so he continued going around town setting up turntables all over the place, doing it all for free.
By 2016, Richard has performed over 2000 setups and he stopped counting after that. Through hands-on experience, he discovered that the use of test signals and distortion analyzers can greatly improve the accuracy of cartridge setups. However, setup parameters cannot be optimized in isolation and there is no single product on the market which addresses all the setup parameters so he decided to develop his own software for the task - an "ALL IN ONE" Software - mainly for his own use.
In 2010, Richard Mak partnered up John Solecki to lead an engineering team with backgrounds in Electrical, Computer, Audio and Mechanical Engineering in the automotive, aerospace and sound recording industry, they began to experiment with various laboratory grade tools and software originally designed to measure minute engine vibrations. After 6 years of Research and Development, the "AnalogMagik All in One Analog Setup Software & Test LPs" is born.
Richard is known in the industry as being "extremely friendly, welcoming and having a great sense of humor". He believes in a philosophy of helpfulness, mutual respect, and kindness. Many in the industry have been into Richard's sound room, and have been showered with fine wines, sumptuous feasts, and good music. 
Richard is a full-time investment manager and the CEO of his own investment management company, RKM Capital.
