About Oranjudio


Philosophy

Oranjudio is an independent recording studio that specializes in recording musicians in an open floor plan environment, not unlike the natural perforamative setup. When building Oranjudio we aimed to create a space where the atmosphere can take on many different forms, while acting as a creative shell for the artist. Oranjudio promotes quality over quantity, investing in relationships with artists. Recording sessions are viewed as a collaboration that produces not only something the artist is happy with, but also a product that strengthens Oranjudio's portfolio.


Mission

To provide a professional environment that suits both commercial and personal audio while allowing freedom and creativity to take precedence over pre-conceived practices/notions.


Oranjudio team

Drew Bullock, Producer + Engineer

Beginning with the guitar at age 10, bass guitar at 12 and multi-track recording at 13, his lifelong interests in both the artistic and technical aspects of music began at a very early age. He began his professional career as an audio engineer at age 17 when he recorded a full-length record for the band Twenty Four Idaho. He quickly found himself propelled into a fascinating position as a recording engineer; making records for bands he didn't feel he was yet qualified to work with. Through word of mouth he was hired full time at a local television network. This allowed for a more diverse portfolio and the opportunity to work on some noteworthy projects. These include editing and mixing 46 episodes of 'Bananas', a stand-up comedy show, for Sony International, assistant editing on a children's show for two seasons of, 'Taylor's Attic', and writing the opening/closing credits for 'Comedy At Large'.

Brandon cut his teeth in the Columbus local music scene while working on a music technology degree at Capital University and doing night sessions at Oranjudio.

With a friendly, laid back demeanor, Brandon is a great collaborator that always delivers the goods on time and beyond expectation.

The space

Here at Oranjudio it's all about the rooms. The sound of many classic recordings can be attributed to the space they were recorded in. When creating layouts for the rooms, the live room took absolute precedence. Our goals: to make drums sound larger than life, to fit a small string section comfortably, and maintain separation when needed. At nearly 800 square feet with fourteen-foot ceilings, it is one of the largest live rooms in central Ohio. There are also two isolation booths, one large enough for drums, should there be a need to record in a more modern set-up.

The mixing room is acoustically sound and comfortable enough for the entire band to relax between takes. Wireless Internet is available so bring your laptop. Feel free to stare at all the bright lights, but don't touch the knobs and buttons.
