The Genelec flagship 1236A Smart Active Monitoring (SAM) has won the 2016 Resolution Award within the monitoring category.
“The 1236A with AutoCal is a huge improvement,” says acoustician Donato Masci of Studio Sound Service in the latest edition of the Resolution Magazine. ‘It is really helpful for us, as acoustic designers, a really useful tool. It delivers a flat response, after which it is easier for us to do fine tuning by hand ... it is also an important part of our studio design in controlling aspects of the room such as early reflections from the mixing console surface.”
In March this year, the first pair of 1236As were installed in Metropolis Studio B in London, replacing a venerable pair of 1035As which had been in the soffits since Metropolis opened its doors in 1989. Artists like Adele, Amy Winehouse, The Verve, Florence and The Machine, Paloma Faith and Lauren Hill have recorded in this studio, and the new 1236A big beasts were almost immediately given a work out on a session with will.i.am.
