    Right i'm going to get some done this week but i've no idea when it comes to downloading tunes. Question is; do I buy mp3s or wav files? Was going to sign up to juno or beatport to get the tunes. Thought id ask before charging off and paying for vinyl..

    Do it wav I reckon, its only about 50p more which isn't worth fussing over really

    Def go for wav if theyre available. But tbf 320 mp3 sounds fine once cut if its your only option.

    get a wav, should there be any loss in the cutting process then it'll be less noticeable.

    i believe most vinyl is cut from wavs anyway..

    use breakbeat/juno/beatport, all have the option to upgrade to wav, although beatport is slightly more expensive i think

    i went and saw him. top quality.
    u just have to add a lil more gain when playing them but otherwise perfect.

    i had a 320 mp3 cut and 3 wavs done. to be honest you cant tell the difference, steve does what he can to make them sound as good as poss.
