Any mastering dudes have any preferences for media type? Clients (college/high school kids mind you) keep asking me to mix my 24bit mixes to DAT cuz they think all the pro's do it. They then send out to be made into CD's or Vinyl (don't ask). The places they send it offer 'all in one' bundles with mastering included. They seem to shop around and use the ones they like the sound of best coming back. They're convinced they need a DAT and seem very wary of me asking 'their guys' about the possibility of 24 bit files going to them. Should I just let it go? How do you guys prefer your mixes? Do you stay digital when you receive digital? Should I leave the 2-bus alone (unless for effect)? Where do babies come from?
