Morrisound is located in Northeast Tampa, close to I-75, I-275 and I-4 and also convenient to Tampa International Airport. The Studio is nestled amongst large oak trees in a quiet, comfortable setting, but just minutes away from many popular restaurants, shopping malls, and a variety of accommodations.
Morrisound has been in business since 1981 and has recorded virtually every style of music from quiet string ensembles to heavy rock, with everything in between including jazz, country, gospel, bluegrass, folk, rap, hip-hop, punk, funk, R&B, and death metal, just to name a few. Our “A” studio is a large room where we have recorded many a full church choir and orchestra. We have also done ADR (dialog replacement) work for major film companies, voice over recordings for TV and Radio ads and narrative recordings for audio books and motivational tapes.
Many live broadcasts of the nationally syndicated “Rockline” radio show have emanated from Morrisound’s “A” studio featuring such acts as Little Feat, Robert Plant, Ozzy Osborne, The Rembrandts, Third Eye Blind and many others.
Morrisound Recording, Inc. began in June of 1981 as a mobile 8 track analog recording system built into a “Hi Cube” van (not too different from a UPS delivery truck). The original staff included Jim Morris, Tom Morris, Laurel Morris (hence Morrisound) and Rick Miller. After picking a rental location in Tampa with the highest available ceilings, and spending 6 months building and wiring the interior, Morrisound became the first new 24 track facility on the west coast of Florida.
Four years after opening the building (in November of 1981), the studio had outgrown the original storefront and moved up to an empty one acre wooded lot in the north end of Tampa (near the University of South Florida). In November of 1985 the only facility on the west coast of Florida designed solely as an audio recording facility opened for business. This is the current site of Morrisound Recording. Although we have continuously updated our equipment, the basic rooms have remained nearly the same.
