    No, lossless formats should be used when cutting to vinyl.

    I know erb n dub gave away like two months ago big tune for free in wav

    personaly if I were to give away tune for free I think it should be wav format,

    giving away tunes in wav should become standard becose theres people that apriciate quality and some like op can want it to put it on vinyl... I am not saying 320 CBR cant be enjoyed,I am just saying that personaly I hear huge difference between wav and mp3

    Wav files are huge though, obviously that has to factor in to it.

    obviously a wav is preferable but they don't need a wav. if they insist and you can't get one, just convert your mp3 into a wav. you can do it on cool edit pro, and probably a few other progs... depends how badly you want it on vinyl format

    Just hit up someone involved and explain the situation.

    I wouldn't cut an mp3 to wax.

    I have had a 320 cut to wax, bass is a little quiet but its more than playable, depends if you playing it out or in your bedroom

    Didn't some matey on here who owns a label say that he uses 320's to cut vinyls and I'm pretty sure that is the industry standard but would need confirmation on that. Anyway my point being is that 320 should be fine.
