Online Mastering Studio

Welcome to Vital Mastering, the private online mastering studio of mastering engineer Jack Braglia, located in Queens, NY.

Online Mastering, costing significantly less than conventional attended mastering sessions, is quickly becoming the preferred choice for independent artists without the luxury of a major label budget.

Feel free to listen to audio after samples to get an idea of what we can do with your music. When you're ready to start your project, the process is simple. Begin by filling out the Mastering Form. Read our submission guidelines and upload your tracks by using WeTransfer or your preferred file transfer service. Once we receive your files you will be sent a PayPal invoice reflecting the total cost of the services you've selected. Once the invoice is paid, the mastering process begins and your masters will be completed within 3-5 business days.

How will my music benefit from professional mastering?

The goal of mastering is to bring out the best of your mix. Without it, you’re simply selling your mix short by not allowing it to reach its full potential. Additionally, you run the risk of having translation issues when your song or album is played on many different sound systems, of widely varying quality. A mastering engineer’s goal is to ensure your mix translates well in the car, the club, the hi-fi audiophile setup, and even the tiny PA system at your local supermarket. Your mix deserves to sound great everywhere, and not just the room it was mixed in and the speakers it was mixed on. If you take your music seriously, professional mastering is absolutely VITAL.
