More about our Tampa based recording studio

Our recording engineers, Mark Prator, and Wes Dearth (John Wesley) have over 25 years each of recording studio, live performing, international touring, songwriting, and production experience. We put our years of experience to work for you to make your project competitive in the marketplace.
We’ve had the privilege to work with artists ranging from bedroom songwriters, aspiring local indie acts, Grammy nominated recordings, and platinum selling bands. Our client list speaks for itself — the pros come to RedRoom, and so should you!
RedRoom has built a solid reputation for our ability to capture some of the best vocal and instrument tones as well as the edgiest drum and guitar sounds. Our specialty is live instrument tracking and mixing – acoustic and electric, with complete integration into MIDI software samplers and instruments.
Unlike some studios who advertise Pro Tools and use a consumer version, RedRoom uses the most powerful Pro Tools 11 HDX DAW. We use Neive-style Vintech mic preamps, Digidesign 192 A/D converters, and a wide selection of top notch microphones and plug-ins by Universal Audio. We also offer a selection of Marshall, Fender, and Dr. Z amps.
You won’t find a better value for your recording budget at any other studio in Tampa Bay. We can provide you with national level recording studio sound for a cost that will fit within your budget.
Our recording studio is centrally located within Tampa Bay, Florida with quick access to nearby I-4, I-275, and Lee Roy Selmon (Crosstown) Expressway. We’re also easy to access via all major public transportation.
