Located at 9306 Ledgestone Terrace in Austin, TX, Orb Recording Studios offers convertible spaces capable of accommodating a number of players from a solo artist to an orchestra.

"We want to bring a comfortable and stress-free recording environment to Texas," said Hudson. "After recording in New York and Los Angeles, we realized that Austin deserved the same type of state-of-the-art-facility, but with a Texas Hill Country vibe. Built by musicians for musicians, we combined all of our favorite attributes from studios around the country and brought them to Orb."

Acoustic Spaces owner and chief designer Mark Genfan designed the studio’s acoustics, and wiring and audio electronics were installed by Brad Engleking, owner and designer of Metric Audio. The core team is rounded out by Orb Recording Studios house engineer Kevin Butler who has produced, engineered and composed music for albums, TV, film, Web and other uses for clients including GM, Disney and Google, and has worked with more than 100 bands and recording artists.
