No, but those are really good prices. It seems like there an "in the box" only mastering outfit. Personally, I'd prefer using a mastering service that has some proper analog processing gear. Obviously, it's the skill of the mastering engineer that matters, but these guys swear by stuff like the Manley Massive Passive for a reason.

Only one way to find out if they're any good. Send em' off a tune!

i read some pros sold their massive passive after testing the plugin

if you want to know how good they are then you should try labelworx.... but that they want example tracks from you makes me wonder....sounds amateurish cause giving them a track doesnt say anything how the track sounded originally and what the mastering did in the end. and if you give them a sh!t ableton mix and a maceo plex track as mastering example?? whats the point?
a good mastering guy should know what to do. and if he has to correct too much cause your mixing sucks than he should get in contact with you or provide different versions.
honestly i cant believe that good mastering can be that cheap.

thanks guys!
my main problem is that i dont have currently any access in CLUBS!
so even if i send them a track just for test, i still cant listen to it where i want it to play.

I agree for the price.
it is very low yes, but unfortunately at this time even a very very good track may not give back the mastering/promo/etc money.

I know some excellent mastering guys but the cheaper one wants 50 euros per track.
50 are NOT lot to give once in a while but im a production junkie with a new track every 2-3 days.
i really cant afford that money (and as i said before, when knowing that i may never get them back).

Do you have any others to suggest for minimal/tech/techno stuff?

thanks

$50.00 is generally thought of as a good price for mastering. Here's two that are right around that range and have good reputations:

I'd be wary of very cheap mastering services. Probably just some kid with a (pirated) copy of Ozone and a pair of Genelecs.
I'm a very suspicious person though, maybe you can get great mastering for cheap.

check out "Sleaze Records Mastering Service"...Joe McGeechan from BCR Boys is their mastering engineer who masters tracks for Gary Beck & Damon Wild (just to name a few)....
with 20GBP per track i think you can't go wrong with this

i have send them an e-mail several times but never hear back from them!
one was a year ago, one i think 3-4 months ago and the last one should be 5-6 day ago (max).
