Founded in 1984 by trumpet player Sylvain Lefebvre, Lamajeure is one of Montreal’s premier recording studios. Over the years, the studio has created and recorded audio for projects including albums, movie soundtracks, TV and radio commercials, ADR, video games and more.
Businessman and sound enthusiast, Etienne Boivin joined the organization in 2008 to help Sylvain realize his ambition of creating an exceptional sound recording environment, matching technology with creativity.
They have gone out to recruit the best minds in each of the fields they deal in, namely sound engineering, project management and client services. The result is a highly creative and efficient team that takes great satisfaction in maintaining Lamajeure’s reputation as Montreal’s finest recording facility.

Original Music Composition
Lamajeure’s in-house team of composers is very much in tune with all the latest music trends. Our personalized approach to each assignment results in an original hand crafted musical piece. We work regularly with Quebec’s most notorious musicians and have a live recording facility large enough to accommodate string ensembles, jazz groups, indie-rock bands and everything in between. And yes, we do have the microphone selection you need to make all that live recording effort worthwhile. Whatever mood you are looking for; and for whatever kind of production, we can create the music for it.
When it comes to orchestral recording and mixing for a 5.1 soundtrack, Lamajeure’s international reputation is second to none. Our experienced sound engineers, including Sylvain Lefebvre, have recorded and mixed dozens of scores for renowned composers for Canadian, US and International productions.
Lamajeure is a leader in TV distribution. Our proprietary network is fully deployed across Canada, providing clients with direct access to all broadcast partners.

A key benefit for quality assurance is being physically situated in an actual studio as it provides the best environment for our technicians to effectively manage the quality control process. Bilingual closed captioning, submission to Telecaster and digital delivery are accurately and efficiently coordinated to complete your project in a timely manner. In addition to TV, online video and radio delivery are fully managed by our dedicated Account team.
Creative can later be accessed in the “Vault”, our digital library, and may be viewed and shared, at any time.
