Manricks Music Studio, the newest addition to Manricks Music Records, is a recording studio in Northern California specializing in recording acoustic music.

Manricks Music Recording Studio was built in 2016 in Sacramento, CA. Central to downtown Sacramento, the studio has 3 acoustically treated and isolated spaces, a grand piano, drums and control room. The main live room has a 14 foot ceiling with oak beams and 6 inch exterior insulated walls. The MMR Studio has a wide collection of vintage and modern recording equipment and cameras.  The new home to Manricks Music Records, this studio was initially built for Manricks to record his compositions after moving from New York in 2014.  It has since become a professional space used by select colleagues of Manricks for projects up to 10 horns and rhythm section. It’s currently being used for live concert and educational broadcasts and Manricks’ other ongoing musical projects. While the space was designed for recording acoustic music, Manricks also has an expansive collection of MIDI libraries he uses to compliment live recordings such as those on his releases Samadhi, GilManricks, Cinematic and Beth Duncan’s release ‘I’m All Yours’.
