Jamie Foulds is not your run of the mill audio technician.
His approach to recording follows a musical trajectory, not a technical one.
What’s best for your music comes first. Every time. Jamie’s recording philosophy is straight forward; a relaxed and comfortable artist performs better.. And sounds better! You can have all the technology in the world at your disposal, but without a great performance, it just can’t be a great recording. So with that in mind, an open and collaborative approach is what you can expect from a session at Soundpark.
Jamie is one of the most highly respected and trusted audio professionals on the East Coast. He has won eight East Coast Music Awards over the years; Seven for Recording Engineer Of The Year and his first for Pop/Rock Artist Of The Year in 1992 while fronting the top 10 charting band Realworld. He has engineered and produced music recordings for a veritable who’s who of Eastern Canadian recording artists. In addition to music production, Jamie has extensive experience in the video post production world, having worked as a location sound recording engineer and as mix engineer and/or composer for many independent and network television productions.
Jamie has been using the Avid (Digidesign) Pro Tools system for audio recording and editing since it’s initial release in 1991. Few engineers on the East Coast have as deep a knowledge of the system.
In addition to running Soundpark Studios, Jamie is also a certified recording technology instructor, recognized by the Nova Scotia Deptartment of Education. He teaches the “Introduction to Recording” and “Recording Technology” modules of the Applied Music Technology program at McKenzie College Sydney Campus in Sydney, NS.
