Big Orange is a recording and mixing studio in Austin, Texas, owned and operated by Matt Oliver and Stuart Sikes.

The studio is an accurate, relaxing, atmospheric and intimate tracking and mixing space. We offer a collection of classic outboard gear, effects, tape machines, instruments and microphones, all centered around several recording consoles: a fully restored, 1960s Spectrasonics 16-channel mixing desk; a customized 8-channel Neve 542 broadcast console; and a 24-channel Calrec Minimixer MK1 console, built for the BBC at AMS Neve in the late 70s.
