    Can anyone shed some light on the legalities of cutting dubs of officially released tunes say on cd or mp3 only..?

    Is there anything to stop me doing it legally or morally for that matter..?

    I mean financially its not justifiable cutting every track on to dub but for the odd one or two that have/will never be pressed on vinyl format its wouldnt be too bad..

    Any info appreciated....

    Chars

    mate if its been released i dont see the problem at all, you've paid for the priviledge of having that tune. n if you're prepared to pay even more to have it cut i would see that as a compliment to the artist and label tbh

    but if you wanted to make sure then u can always contact the label who released it.

    There's no legalities about it at all, it's exactly the same as burning a tune to CD.

    I'm assuming Andy C / Friction don't need permission to cut tunes they're sent to vinyl

    they wont actually cut the mp3, the likes of Andy C will be sent masters made for cutting. As a vinyl master is very different to a digital master or so i've been told anyway

    i think that everything under a certain frequency (bass) on vinyl needs to be made mono for some reason.

    althought why anybody would burn an mp3 instead of a WAV i have no idea

    True. Finyl Tweek do that

    I'm sure most cutting houses will cut you a dub from a 320 mp3. Their job is to just get the best sound quality possible out of what they've been given. Yeah WAV's might be better to use but not everyone has them

    Other wise it will wobble the needle and cause it to jump. This is why bass should be mixed straight down the middle.

    Why would you want the cheapest when it comes to something like this
