for the record there is no reason why a dubplate should sound much different to the original recording if it is done by a good cutting room. all the dubplates ive ever had done sounded almost exactly like the original file, with no mastering at all, and they were mostly done in shady cutting rooms in garages down dark alleys in South London, no appointment necessary, just queue up with the other bruvs.

Stories like this are exactly what makes me sad about the conversion to digital DJ'ing. Vinyl isn't cheap or convenient, but it makes for a great fucking story.

Yes. It's acetate. Burning a CD would be the best thing to do unless your super against CDJ's or some sh!t.

my first dubplates lasted about 30 plays till they started sounding rougher.
however;
i have had some dubplates cut on a hand built machine based around a technics 1210, and they dont use acetate, they use vinyl, and they last as long as a normal record, and believe it or not they sound pretty good.

i live near a small town in the middle of nowhere, and by pure chance there was a guy in town with one of these machines, they are built by some guy in germany. unfortunately he decided to sell it (£2500), and i just didnt have the money at the time ( i really regret not getting the cash together now)

he ended up selling it to a guy in Bristol who already had one the same, i can find out who this guy is if anyone on the UK is interested.
