    Anyone know where I can get my own dubplate cut and the legalities of this?

    I want a few tunes cut, but don't know where to go for a one off. Any ideas, also as to the legality of it? As long as I bought the mp3 then its cool I am sure.

    There are a few...

    Wanted logistics haunted by her yesterdays... which was never cut.

    Also might as well b-side it with 'true romance' - dbridge.

    But there are literally tons, a lot of older soul:r stuff and ltj's atmospheric jubilancy.

    So it's not illegal to cut tunes you've got legally and/or for free? Like unreleased stuff.

    my advice is try contact the producers themselves askin where u can get the tunes from an say that ur lookin to get em cut etc some might be nice enough to sort u a wav, or even point u in the right direction of finding them on vinyl already?

    Yea man I was joking... thought you knew the tune.

    See what I mean about getting misinterpreted!

    Yea Ill check dub-studios. I wasn't going to get mp3 cut as the quality is crap, probably convert mp3 to flac or wav. as you said.

    Ill call them and I am sure they can help.

    grazie

    Yea true, though I know these haven't been cut onto vinyl.

    Except for true romance, but I can't find it anywhere so might as well b-side it.

    Nice one though.

    dont think i know the answer to that one mate, i was just sayin for tunes that are already released i dont think u can go cut em, besides it would sound really bad seeing as they were once on vinyl then recorded to mp3 then put back on vinyl?? :confused:

    Nah thats not true. The sound quality doesn't falter through transition I don't think. Especially if you think it was produced on a computer and then cut to vinyl. That original computer production file is what they would use to rip an mp3 wav flac.

    How abouts I email Hospital and find out, and let you lot know.

    Saaafe.

    I'll give it a go, though am not sure on discogs as I have been stitched up through ebay and feel its similar. Though haven't given it a shot.

    Cheers though, I have great things in mind for this! I was even thinking of getting a cd deck just for this tune!
