Is it true that most labels only sign already mastered tracks?

    As the title says - I've heard that most major labels will only sign tracks that have already been paid for by the artist to be mastered. Can anyone tell me if this is true?

    Cheers

    Yeah thought so - doesn't seem a very genuine thing to do
