Yeeh i was guna get mine cut there. How much did it end up costing you? The list they sent me said £180 for a 12". But it was like £60 for a dub. I swear dubs arnt long lasting though. like 50-60 plays on average.

What tunes you get cut?

ive had a few vinyl done there but the mastering doesnt even come close to the skills of the technician at transitions. also i get to be there and have a musical input on the mastering whilst its being cut. personal preference really

You could get transition to master it then get dubstudio to cut a vinyl. I'd be pissed if I got a dub cut and could only play it 60 to 70 times.

yea its true but tbh it also has a lot to do with impatience lol, transitions is only down the road from me and i get on quite well with the technicians there. and i dont have to wait for delivery lol i might try using dubstudio again maybe for my next one.
cheers for the comms peeps

so they master 2 tunes for £60? and give you the mastered wav (as well as cutting the plate) when they're done?

Na its mastered onto the dubplate, im sure if i asked they would have saved as a wav file but i was more concerned about taking the dub home and mixin it lol.

That is stupid money, I had no idea it was costing a £1 a play when u cut your own dubs...

CDs ftw, I wouldnt even consider spending that kinda cash on 2 tunes

Yea but i cant afford a cdj yet, as soon as ive got the money i will be investing so until then i will be getting dubs cut. but tbh there is something special about having your own tunes on dub, maybe its just me but its a propa nice feelin when u do that first mix with your own vinyl.

I get you completely, but on the flip, if you hold tht emotion value for it keep it, frame it, id never touch the thing...which to me sounds more like £60 well spent to say 'this is mine i did that'...

Plus by the time you have bought 4 of these you could have bought Serato and saved yourself £££ if not ££££ in tunes bought and dubs cut.

Yeah is nice to have something like that but at £1 a play, that just seems illogical to me.

cool, i'm just thinking that it's a relativly cheap price to get 2 tunes mastered at a place that (somewhat) specificly geared to getting the best sound for dnb tunes.

cheers for the info tho.

yea the mastering technician is a quality dubstep producer/dj with many years experience so it is definately aimed towards the drums scene.
