    I found a very cheap mastering service last week so I decided to give it a go.
    this is it:
    http://www.xlmastering.com/

    They send you a free preview before you buy it and it only costs 15 bucks per track, while others cost at least 50 bucks.
    But you may want to check around first, some other mastering services will allow free previews too.
    for example:
    http://www.audiomasteringservice.com/

    here a track I got mastered at xlmastering:

    There's a few members on this forum that are offering free mastering to practise their skills, might have to search though.

    transitions meant to be the tits but its about £70 a track.

    I've used bob mac before at subvert and was quite happy with the masters for £35 a track.

    you can always just stick ozone (or whatever) over your mix to get an idea of what it'll sound like mastered. The difference between that and a pro master won't be huge.

    the track mastered bij audiomasteringservice sounds pretty good.
    I'm gonna have a preview done there too =)


    the guys from xlmastering haven't answered me too, I send them a tune on wednesday.
    their site says they respond within 24 hours, but they didn't make it.
