  • I would recommend this business

Though it's been a few years since I worked with Dave, I will say he is the consummate professional! His technical know-how combined with his knowledge of music makes hours in the studio seem like minutes. He strives for the best quality and end result. He gives constructive criticism, and I am grateful for it!

Customer Testimonials

I worked with David and Jim both in the video and audio sides of the studio and I they are wonderful! It's always a pleasure to hire them because I know that I'll always get a wonderful product from beginning to end.

I have been working in music and recording for almost 30 years and the folks at Ambient Studios just helped me produce the absolute best sounding recording I have ever been a part of. They are patient and easy to work with, have a great ear for music, and are experts on all aspects of recording, mixing, and mastering. I let a music friend from Miami, Florida listen to one of the songs and his comment was, it was the best thing he has ever heard coming out of Cincinnati.

Ambient Studios was great to work with. I was very impressed with availability and how quickly my songs were mastered and ready for me to share. David is a great guy and made my recording a very personal experience, while still maintaining ultimate professionalism. Thank you!

Fantastic facility. David is excellent at making you relaxed and comfortable, thus helping you perform at your best. Very reasonable rates, and a variety of services as well.

Dave and crew went above and beyond. We needed their expertise for a private house party where they had to balance capturing and projecting excellent sound with staying out of the way of guests! They spent extra time evaluating the space and determining the best and most discreet ways to get the job done; essentially, they can adapt to any situation you throw at them. Plus, they're just really nice guys.
