dubplate video. Just got my 10" acetate in the mail

Post by filtersweeperVCO » Thu Aug 27, 2009 7:03 am

I sent my files to this cutting house in B.C Canada to get a 10" acetate dubplate cut of my new tune "Heat". It's a General Levy tune remix, or a bootleg I guess. Anyways, I paid 125$ for the disc, and an additional 45 for mastering for vinyl. It came back sounding way better then when I sent it. I guess that's why they do what they do. Cuz they're good at it! Haha, so I might be distributing the tune on whitelabel as a promo, or eventually officially releasing it.

Hey Junglist, nice remix ;)
I guess that u know that acetates wear out too quickly, and that they practically loose most of the high frequencies after 20-30 plays.
It is worth checking out these too :
http://www.dubstudio.co.uk ( highly recommended)
http://www.cut-a-record.com ( cheaper , located at my country :))

Let the Bass be with ya ;)

I was about to say this. I remember friends pressing their dnb in the late 90s and telling me how fast they would wear out. I never pressed anything other than releasing a single for a friend. Still have those master plates somewhere. Gotta dig Serato for whatever type of music since you can test out new tracks the same day in your dj sets.

Don't let the "keeping it real" crowd fool you man. It doesn't mix for you. If someone sucks they will still suck and suck digitally.

Just don't sell your good stuff. I dumped just about all of my dnb except for a few records some years ago.

20 or 30 plays is all that is required to test the tune to see if it's ready for dancefloor. Marketing research tool. Then a label can go ahead and press/distribute or not.

That place Vinyl guru apparently can manage that. But there's also this other place, although I'm not sure it's still around "Archer Pressings"
