Blue Orion Studio ▲
A cutting edge studio lies at the very median of the Blue Orion music foundry. Various synthesizers (analog, digital, softsynth) are the primary means of composition during track conceptualization and production.
Synthwave wizardry with a lasting creative touch that will ensnare the vital senses.
This unique format infuses enduring synthesis with modern digital programming for a synth-laden repertoire. No desired sound is unattainable and no conceptual stone goes unturned. This is where creative alchemy is achieved. Finished pieces are arduously mastered digitally and then 24-bit rendered in 2-channel stereo using professional recording studio software.
Analog and digital audio signals are routed via USB to the CPU through a 48kHz data path. Field recordings are also utilized during the editing phase and rendered into the final mix.
