ORBIT AUDIO

Extraordinary Seattle Recording Studio

I believe that recorded music is a art form about life, people, dreams and creativity.

Joe Reineke

We like to think we are one of the best recording and mixing studios in Seattle but we all know that rooms and gear are just a small part of a recording studio, our people make it what it is and we have some mighty fine folks here to help you.

No matter where you are on your musical journey, you are always welcome here with respect and appreciation.

Mastering is like pizza, when its really good its REALLY GOOD

Full Music Production

We offer full production here from pre-production, tracking to mixing. Production is never a one size fits all because every artist is different and every song has diverse needs. The benefit of having a experienced producer is where the value is, many say it has been invaluable.

Building on the strengths of the artist and knowing when to stay out of the way is a true art form, one that only comes with experience. Other times my job as a producer is just to be a good documentarian of the project and capture the artist in a moment that represents them, communication prior to the record starting is the best way to achieve the level of production that each artist is looking for.
