Orbital extends studio complex

Investing in new facilities is central to Orbital's philosophy

22 October 2012

UK - Orbital Sound has opened a new programming suite, providing sound designers, producers and engineers with a relaxed programming environment. The new room is part of Orbital's expanding studio complex, located at the company's extensive London headquarters.

Investing in new facilities is central to Orbital's philosophy, as MD Chris Headlam explains, "We originally created our studio complex with the aim of providing a fully equipped working environment for creating sound effects, click track and voiceovers, and it has been hugely popular since it opened. The new programming suite is a natural extension of this, designed as a welcoming and comfortable space, with the added bonus that it is furnished with some of our latest mixing consoles to give users a chance to try them out at their leisure. It's all about providing an enhanced service that supports the creative process - something that we all appreciate in this demanding business."

Located in Orbital's basement, the Studio Complex includes a large sound-proofed vocal area, the new programming suite, plus access to lounge and kitchen areas. The studio itself features a comprehensive Pro Tools system with a Digidesign Control 24 surface feeding a Genelec-based surround monitoring system. The choice of outboard electronics is immense, culled from Orbital's extensive warehouse-based rental stock, with standard fixtures including Avalon channel strips, Lexicon reverbs, Neumann microphones, and TL Audio valve preamps. Other multi-track options on hand include CSC, Nuendo and Qlab software solutions, as well as a Revox B77 reel-to-reel tape machine as a reminder of the past. The Studio Complex is fully supported by Orbital's in-house technical support and sound design team, and users have full access to Orbital's vast online sound effects library.
