Genelec Masterclass with Sylvia Massy


Producer & Engineer Sylvia Massy shows us her incredible vintage microphone collection ranging from the earliest transmitters, to prototypes of the most iconic and legendary microphones known today. Sylvia’s collection is now considered the largest in the world after acquiring a large portion from the late microphone expert Bob Paquette, and recently she retained ownership of several dozen vintage microphones from the Ukraine.

Sylvia Massy is the unpredictable producer and engineer renowned for her work with Tool, System of a Down, Prince and Johnny Cash. She's received over 25 gold and platinum records including awards for her work with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sevendust and Tom Petty. She's also an accomplished fine artist, a published columnist, in-demand educator, and relentless entrepreneur. Her recent book, Recording Unhinged, dares record-makers to take chances and drastic steps in the studio.

Sylvia was first introduced to Genelec at L.A's Larrabee Sound, where she used Genelec 1038A monitors – recalling them as “the best main speakers I’d ever heard before.” Years later, she still relies on Genelec, and owns a full Genelec immersive Atmos® 7.1.4 system, consisting of 8351B, 8341A, W371A, 7380 and 9301 models, at her personal mix room in Oregon.
