Audio Recording Studio started downtown Cleveland in the 1950s. In 1992, owner Bruce Gigax custom built a studio utilizing room-within-room construction for superior sound isolation. Audio utilizes state-of-the-art technology and provides 40 years' experience and guidance to ensure a quality recording. We specialize in acoustic recording — but also have extensive experience in spoken word, orchestral, chamber, choral, jazz, solo, and ensemble music. Your project starts with recording at your location of choice; mixing in our control room; editing and final assembly; and, if desired, replicating any quantity of CDs. See Instruments for the beautiful Steinway information...

Bruce Gigax - Owner and Chief Engineer

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.
