Quality/Cheap Mastering from China etc.?

Is there a cheap labor in audio production like there is with clothing etc in China? What about in 3rd world countries... Where a whole steak dinner is a dollar... do any of these countries have sound engineering professionals?

I'm sure they do, but you can find some of the cheapest in classifieds on forums like our own, where some people will do it for free for the practice, or some more experienced people will treat you well if you're a forum member. I doubt you can do much better unless you know a guy....

Re: Quality/Cheap Mastering from China etc.?

I'm sure there are professionals in China (etc), but if you are looking to exploit cheap labor...?

I work in the art field though and can say that people who outsource art instead of having it done in-house or by a professional - usually get what they pay for.
It ends up sloppy or auto-traced (by a program).

Re: Quality/Cheap Mastering from China etc.?

I can't count all the times I've seen free offers for mixing and mastering on here, on reddit, or any other production-minded place (but especially here).

I also can't tell how much of your post is a troll post or not, but people are looking to expand their portfolio left and right. You could probably get decent stuff at donation rates, use the search box for starters.

However, if you're especially fond of Wal-Mart style shirts, you could always check out Landrrr or something.

Re: Quality/Cheap Mastering from China etc.?

Not really for my personal use, I'm just curious if the audio Engineering market parallels other markets.

Before you outsource music stuffs you'll want to review internacional copyright laws.
There are some internacional treaties to protect intellectual property rights.
Not all countries are yet participants in those treaties.

The one I was taught about is called the Berne Convention:

It would be a shame to have all your stuff ripped off as it's being produced.

That's a really good point. The world doesn't always play by the same rules.
