The Ultimate Recording Experience

Audio Recording Studio specializes in acoustic recording in the studio and on location. A pioneer in Cleveland's recording community since the 1950s, Audio utilizes state-of-the-art technology and years of experience to ensure a quality recording.


We can take your project from beginning to end — recording at your location of choice; mixing in our control room; editing and final assembly; and replicating any quantity of CDs.


Owner Bruce Gigax has been in the recording business since​ 1977. As Audio Supervisor for The Cleveland Orchestra since 1986, he’s had the privilege of recording that great orchestra at Severance Hall, Blossom Music Center, on remotes around Cleveland, and in residency at Miami’s Knight Concert Hall (2006-2017). He is a 1977 graduate of Mount Union with a degree in Music, majoring in Voice. He, too, may lend his talents if needed.  But greater than that is his input from 40 years' experience in recording all genres. Outside Audio, Bruce enjoys singing as a soloist at church and paid performances.


At Audio, we record a wide variety of soloists, composers, groups, ensembles, and individual projects. Here is a sampling:


Apollo's Fire, Brian J. Wilson, Baldwin Wallace, Capital University Bands, Cleveland Orchestra Chorus, Phil Cucchiara, Hawken School, Helen Welch, Kent/Blossom, Manhattan Girls Chorus, Mt. Union, Socey & Pency, St. Ignatius, St. Olaf, College of Wooster, Todd Wilson, University of Akron, Univ. of Iowa, Univ. of Oregan, Health Journeys, Mighty Wurlitzer Radio Hour, and many more in studio and remotely.


Our recording hardware includes microphones from Neumann, Schoeps, B&K, Audio Technica, and Shure; mic preamps from Millennia Media, True Systems, Metric Halo, and Universal Audio; and analog-to-digital conversion from Apogee, Metric Halo, and RME.


Reed Wheeler, Assistant Engineer, is a 1986 graduate from Indiana University's School of Music, majoring in Recording Arts and Sciences. He continually works on digital transfer of the Cleveland Orchestra's vast library.  Reed has engineered recordings of all genres. Reed has provided voice-overs for various recording projects and plays guitar, bass, and sings.



Often seen in the studio are Bruce's wife, Trina and Bentley, the studio's new mascot. After losing Skippy in June of 2017, Bruce and Trina rescued this fun loving Yorkie-poo. Always in our hearts are Skippy, 2001-2017. and Coco 1999-2014. ❤️❤️
