NATICK, MA, October 14, 2010. At a time when independent music production has become intensely localized, regional recording studios have taken on a greater role in the evolution of the music industry. Rolling Thunder Studios in Traverse City, Michigan, understands that – it’s the creative and production home for numerous local artists for everything from their demos to their LPs and their mastering needs. And now Rolling Thunder’s clients will experience a new dimension to their music thanks to the recently installed 5.1 monitoring system from Genelec, the world leader in active monitoring technology.
“We’ve taken great satisfaction from the reception the 8260A has received since its launch,” says Lars Olof Janflod, International Sales Director at Genelec. “At trade shows across the world the reaction to the product has been immensely positive and has fully repaid the commitment we made in the research and development of the product.

State-of-the-art Rockheim pop and rock experience in Norway makes extensive use of Genelec monitors, finds Dave Robinson in the August issue of Pro Sound News Europe.
The ‘Norwegian Rock and Pop Museum’. I know what you’re thinking: don’t be daft, there’s not enough rock and pop in the country to warrant such a thing. Wouldn’t a waxwork tableau of a-ha, a glass case laden with Röyksopp memorabilia and a picture-board naming and shaming the country’s appalling Eurovision entries (2009’s Alex Rybak excluded) do the trick? Well, no, they wouldn’t. Like most countries, Norway has a rich and colourful history of pop and rock; it’s just that not much of it made it past the fjörds. Norway also has a very dark legacy: the despicable genre of Black Metal, which led to murders, church-burning and worldwide notoriety for the country in the early ’90s. But more on that jolly subject later.
— Genelec 8260A’s with AutoCal™ automated calibration system and Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™) control network give Katz a transparent sound that he describes as “the best Genelecs ever” —
NATICK, MA, August 3, 2010 — Audio mastering engineer, author, teacher, inventor and audiophile Bob Katz’s resume reads like a who’s-who of the music industry. Over the course of his career, Katz has worked with a multitude of artists in literally every genre of music, including country artists Marley's Ghost, jazz clarinetists Eddie Daniels and Allan Vaché, Latin Jazz performers Paquito D'Rivera and Tito Puente, heavy metal bands Necrophagist and Motorpsycho, progressive rock performers Sean Malone and Triggering Myth, indie rock performer Susanna, world music artists The Bombay Dub Orchestra and Sinéad O'Connor, big band Mexican composer Armando Manzanero, salsa performers Rubén Blades and Héctor Lavoe and more. Katz has also recorded and/or mastered three GRAMMY®-winning albums and several other GRAMMY-nominated recordings. When it came time for Katz to re-evaluate his monitors in his Digital Domain studios mix room, as he needed a higher degree of accuracy compared to the “audiophile” speakers he was using, Katz found exactly what he was looking for in the award-winning Genelec 8260A Tri-Amplified DSP Monitoring System.

He found exactly what he was looking for in the award-winning Genelec 8250A Bi-Amplified DSP Active Monitoring System. Genelec’s acclaimed AutoCal™ automated calibration system and Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™) control network allowed Silver to tune his room like never before.
