Our freshly built studio is now open in Sarasota Fl.
We now offer both a Studio A & Studio B to better suit the needs of our diverse clientele. Voiceover sessions have a chance to shine in Studio B & full bands can take advantage of all the space Studio A has to offer.
Burnt Orange was named after the infamous aroma of the Tropicana Factory. We said goodbye to our Bradenton location (formerly known as Audio Images) in 2020 and got to work on our dream buildout in our current Sarasota location.
Both studios were carefully designed and constructed to isolate and capture your unique sound. Multiple layers of drywall, flooring, and custom diffusers have blocked the outside world. Hurricane Ian passed over as a category 4 in 2022 and you couldn’t hear a sound in our live room.
