In a career that’s spanned a non-stop evolution in both the media landscape and the advertising business, freelance audio producer and engineer, Joe Vagnoni has consistently mastered the art of mixing, recording and designing sound for the industry’s most demanding clients. During this time, Joe co-founded three recording studios, worked on countless radio and TV campaigns and collaborated with some of the industry’s top ad agency creatives, producers, film and video editors. His skills include not only producing and engineering audio tracks for everything from TV programs and commercials, radio spots and web shorts, but also to casting and directing talent. He got his start at National Recording, working his way up to engineering network radio commercials, and then became one of the founding engineers at Trackworks.
Joe later joined Howard Schwartz Recording Studios, where he spent seven years specializing in radio before opening Mixed Nuts, which Joe and his partners designed from the ground up as one of New York’s first all-digital facilities. While there his client mix expanded to include more TV assignments. In 2000, Joe joined Photomag, where he worked with a team of audio professionals who would become his partners in the state of the art audio post facility — audioEngine which opened in 2002. Joe left audioEngine in late 2008 to found Just Joe Audio, an independent audio production service and consultancy, where he works for a range of media clients.
