Being a newbie, just composing a song is a feat for me. Does anyone have any experience with a mixing and mastering service based online? Did it make a big difference ? Any specific recommendations?
this particular track is classical based.
thanks.

I’d recommend looking into getting Neutron 3 for mixing and Ozone 9 for mastering. They do just as good of a job as the online services do and you only pay once.

i was looking at those. Couldn’t decide if it was marketing hype or not.

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.

Oh I should have been more specific. Yes I’m asking about an online service in which you send it an actual person.

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.
 
the 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.

so whether you buy ozone and pick a preset on your own, or pay landr, they're close enough to the same thing.


edit - sorry, i just saw the response you were quoting. ignore me, thought this was still in the context of landr and the like.

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 ?

An experienced person with good ears and gear will eat your LANDR and co., and certainly your Ozone self made mastering for breakfast.

No comparison there whatsoever.
