    I WALKED into a kinda start up studio and i found they were mixing down all their recordings into mp3 format. I thought it is not advisable to mix down recordings into compressed formats, can anyone prove or disaprove my point??? please

    Hey!
    I would say "not good".... and ask; why? Mp3 is a compressed format.... not the best format!! Make them mix it to wav :evil:

    Maby they are Ipod fans...

    That's like mixing to cassette. There's not much info above 10k.

    I guess they don't plan on every having their material mastered. :roll:

    i'd say it all depends on why they're bouncing down.
    but if it's the final mix, always wave!
