THE STUDIO

IMG_6211_edited.jpg

 Vital Mastering is a private online mastering studio owned and operated by mastering engineer Jack Braglia, based in NYC.  We specialize in mastering the heaviest and most extreme genres of metal for release to streaming platforms, CD, cassette tape, & vinyl.

Vital Mastering Studio opened back in 2012 to bring heavy metal mastering services to our independent and major label clients. Our goal is to produce clear, loud, and heavy masters that are competitive with the today's latest metal releases. We have a passion for many genres of metal such as death metal, black metal, prog, doom, stoner rock, and metalcore, but have experience mastering all genres of music as well.

 

Online mastering rates as low as $50 per track for albums, and $60 per track for singles. Contact us today for a quote on your project or to request a free mix review.
