TRUE SOUND SERVICES
The expertise of True Sound Services includes the sound engineering, the studio and live mixes and the audio mastering. Our goal is to always maximize the artistic component of productions that you provide us with a refined sound quality.
Few engineers are specialized in sound reinforcement and in the recording of events, theatre productions, musicals and choir activities.
Our recording studio is built with carefully chosen specialized equipment, which we know how to make the most with. Our artistic sense combined with our technology skills makes the difference.
When entrusting us with your work, you are making sure that you bring it to another level, for the pleasure of the ears of those who will be invited to listen to it.
Chief Sound Engineer
True Sound Services was created by Louis Morneau, trained guitarist, composer and multi-skilled sound engineer.
PASSION & EXPERIENCE
As musician and composer, Louis stands out through a variety of musical styles. He has performed regularly in concerts across Québec, solo and with several classical groups, world music and pop. He has played with the Amalgáma ensemble since the very beginning. On several occasions, he has won scholarships from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec with that ensemble.
Nearly twenty years ago, Louis moved towards recording and producing. Ever since, his main goal has always been to obtain the best sound quality possible in each piece of work that has been entrusted to him and has done the same for shows in which he has taken part in as sound designer and engineer.
Shortly after, he discovered an art which has fascinated him since: mastering. He has fully grown into this craft which demands as much of a rigorous technique as his artistic sense.

Paroles Égales, the theatre for the ear. | Miguel on guitar and spoken voice / Lyrics : Miguel Hernández | Composition and guitar interpretation : Arturo Parra / Spoken voice : Catherine Ego
For the recording and mixing of Miguel, we were looking for an entanglement of two audio sources that preserve all form of intelligibility in the lyrics and the music. We were expecting a lot from Louis in that regard… and he has exceeded our expectations! Both intuitive and meticulous, his recording and mixing work has enabled us to achieve the organic and precise fusion of the guitar and of the spoken voice to which we were aspiring. His technical expertise and his musicality have managed to glorify the poetry of Miguel Hernandez, the interpretative playing of Catherine Ego and the timbral richness of Arturo Parra. The infallible kindness and the enormous generosity of Louis makes him an invaluable partner that we will be happy to reunite with for our next album…
Richard Lafleur and myself have been doing business with Louis Morneau for many years for the mixing and the mastering of our music albums, whether it be for our band, Clara and the Sky, or for the customers of Studio Sonaris. Louis is an experienced professional, a good listener and he is trustworthy... with his bionic ears, he hears everything! Seriously, we are very satisfied with his services and we always have a lot of fun working with him. You are in good hands.
Louis is a receptive, patient, and competent sound engineer, with a selection of fantastic equipment. He does his best to achieve the end result you are looking for while offering helpful suggestions. Working with Louis is always a positive experience!

To work with Louis Morneau is above all pleasure in the human relationship, never tainted by negativity even under pressure. An attentive ear to artists’ requests but also to production staff, a great capacity to adapt to changes and an openness to creation even outside the box. That’s when he wants….
I am pleased to tell you that I often receive very nice testimonials about my album. For some thirty years, one of my best friends and her partner have been jazz and contemporary music lovers. My material is generally not their type. Much to my surprise, on my Facebook account , this friend has highly recommended buying my CD. She likes this album. Talk about that! One of my friends brought 30 in France. She likes everything about this album. There are plenty of other nice comments. It’s really great! Louis, I wanted to share all that with you since you have contributed to it with your good work in terms of audio and also through your valuable advice which I very much appreciated. The result is superb and I am very pleased!!!!! I’m delighted in every way
I only have good things to say about my collaborative experiences with Louis Morneau. He is a true master of his trade and he brings his passion, his creativity and his impeccable availability to listen to projects both in a sensitive and efficient way.
Working with Louis is always very pleasant. Whether it be in studio or on tour, I always really feel that I am in good hands. His ear for music, his true competence and his passion for audio engineering are undeniable. But I would say that it is his human qualities such as his sensitivity, his ability to listen, his availability and his great generosity that makes all the difference.
I am a little feverish to think that our concert is already Saturday; I'm glad to know that you're still here to make our sound. You are truly a master in what you do. I have listened to all the recordings of our concerts again since you have been with us and I am so impressed by the balance of sound of the choristers and musicians. You really understood what I am looking for for the amplification of a choir.
The sound quality of the recording is really outstanding and what you manage to do is absolutely awesome. I presented the CD to many musicians with fine ears and they unanimously said that the sound texture of the piano is exquisite. I would also like to thank you for your professionalism and your good mood. I really appreciated your sense of duty, especially the time when we had to stay in the studio until the early morning hours. It was very noble of you!

Arturo Parra : Exilio on guitar solo | Composition : Guillermo Rendón / Performance : Arturo Parra
Audacious and virtuoso, his major works from the contemporary guitar repertoire requires an extreme clarity in the playing as well as in the recording. Thanks to his extraordinary talent for the sound design and to the open-mindedness that he has demonstrated throughout our discussions, Louis Morneau has been able to implement my unique audio vision of those compositions while displaying in Exilio the refinement of his own listening and his extraordinary technical knowledge. Patient and friendly, he has also made each of our recording and mixing sessions a passionate conversation between enthusiastic creators.
