Our mission is to pursue values and methods that we believe in: quality, expertise, ethics, market and improvement.
The Mastering.it audio labs (ex VBG Audio Labs) studios started in 1990 and achieved many hi-quality recordings in many genres: acoustic, electronic, pop, rock, folk, metal, jazz, classical, rap / trap, brit-pop, indie.
Our main modern studio allows deep care of all stages in music production, with a big studio room accomodating full orchestras and groups.
We are known to be "creatives and cerfectionists", thanks to our great attention to details, factor that separates our recordings from those "home-made" amateur productions: ours are much more refined and ready for Record Industry.
The studio is managed by creative and skilled sound engineers and musicians with over 20 years' experience in sound and music.
All stylistic choices and techniques derive from a deep design and experience.
