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

    Azimuth

    Vertical Tracking Angle / Stylus Raking Angle

    Anti-Skating

    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 attempt to 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.

How is AnalogMagik different from other tools on the market?

Nearly all available tools on the market will fine tune only one or two specific parameters in isolation.   For example, there many tools which will allow you to determine Azimuth, but they will leave out Anti-Skating, Vertical Tracking Angle, and Vertical Tracking Force.   Users will have to resort to inconsistent and non-scientific methods to setup the rest of the parameters, leading to a sub-optimal setup.

How does AnalogMagik achieve an optimal setup?

We believe an optimal setup is one which allows for the accurate retrieval of recording signals.    This requires minimizing distortion levels in not just one, but ALL the setup parameters.   Setup parameters such as VTA, VTF, Azimuth, Antiskating, etc…….. They are all dependent and inter-related to each other, and no parameter can be optimized in isolation.   A true optimal setup will find the optimal point which delivers low distortion numbers on not just one, but as many parameters as possible.

​For example, assuming you discovered that the optimal Azimuth angle requires you to tilt the cartridge by 2 degree, but as a result, causes a degradation to VTA/SRA, Anti-Skating, and VTF readings, AnalogMagik will not consider this as the optimal setup.    But if you tilt the cartridge by only 1 degree which causes a slight degradation to azimuth readings, but if this will improve VTA/SRA, VTF, and Antiskating readings, this in our opinion, is a more optimal setup because it takes into account multiple setup parameters as a whole, without over emphasizing on one specific parameter.

Only a tool which can perform scientific and repeatable methods on ALL parameters will allow you to do this, using a consistent method based on scientific measurements.

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, and off centered spindle holes

    mathematical standard deviation

    eliminate the detrimental effects of line electric noise

    eliminate the effects of hum

​Do not be surprised to see slightly different results when you use AnalogMagik vs other distortion analyzers.   Our 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.
