    The silver disc is what is cut... This is then used to press the vinyl... I think wat you are looking for is a dubplate... it will last alot longer than 10 plays, and I think the cost around £30 for a disc. Why not just play CD's though ????

    I am not too clued up to be honest but don't see how it is vaible to just say I wanna have a pressing to play..

    The tune is mastered then, it is cut onto a disc using a lathe, the disc is then treated and a metal coating added to it, or summin like that. The mastered silver disc is then used to press out the vinyl's.

    Maybe sumone else has got sum more information, but you be better off hookin up with someone who already has the knowledge and is willing to help you.

    Hope that is off sum help.

    40 is about average for standard dubs, "scratchproof" or long-life plates are around 60.

    Yea, I'm probably the minority on this, but I agree that CD is more cost-effective and down-right the logical best answer.
    Vinyl lovers/CD haters only have nostalgia and status-symbol in their arsenal. There isn't a technical debate in the world that would end with vinyl on the winning side.

    But I love everything, so yea. Fuck everyone's couch.

    Sure there are more plafces to cut dubs..if your a cd hater..final scratch is a way around this..though I don't hate CD's they are cost effective. I just hate people who buy this technology and then download my whole collection through torrent sites when I spent my hard earnt on it. ( but if people are stupid enough to put these choons up...)

    also http://www.dubstudio.co.uk/dubs/ if they're still around.

    obviously the man wants plate, so lets not turn it into a CD vs vinyl argument. even Dustek resisted :teeth:

    Cd's scratch too easily. Imagine banging out a fat tune in a set then it just starts skipping :-\

    Unless your tunes are shit hot or you are planning to get a load done to relase or have cash to burn just use CD's....


    Proper mastering etc is expensive man...
