There’s a video on YouTube by White Sea Studios, the audio engineer who calls out overly marketed plugins as snake oil, who did a shootout of the major online services and compared it to Ozone and a real mastering engineer. IIRC Ozone came out better than LNDR and the other service, but of course the real mastering engineer beat everything out.i was looking at those. Couldn’t decide if it was marketing hype or not.
As long as the person that service employs is experienced, they should be able to produce a better mix/master than an algorithm. It may be worth at least getting some of the aforementioned plugins on the cheap just to check against what they do so you can evaluate the results and determine if they're worth the cost.Oh I should have been more specific. Yes I’m asking about an online service in which you send it an actual person.
several of these services are completely automated. there is no person doing the work, and at the low price some of them charge, there's a chance nobody even checks it. a true race to the bottom.the person
I'd be interested in this, too. Is there an online service for finding/hiring mix and mastering engineers?
I'm also interested. Any recommendation ?
