Create in your space. We’ll bring the professional sound.

Musicians, studio producers, film score composers, video game music composers, bedroom pop artists – in our book they’re all creators. And as the popularity of the home recording studio has evolved, so has our monitoring range. No matter where you love to create, or your room size and budget, our goal is to help you write and record pure, neutral sound – just like a pro.

"When I get into my creative space, I don't take anything. I become part of everything."


The meaningfulness of space.

It’s an interesting time for us at Genelec. The way our contribution to monitor technology has transformed the industry and built our reputation among audio professionals is truly humbling. It’s the result of years of continuous research and development, in both our monitors and our software. And a great deal of that research has focused on the effects that room acoustics have on monitor performance.

What’s remarkable is how our technological advances and the tangible benefits of our products have now seemed to completely align with this growing desire among artists to think beyond the studio. Honestly, we should probably call it a growing need among artists, knowing that so many of us have had no choice but to find a way to create outside the traditional studio now. Still, need or desire, there has been an explosion of artistic talent and an incredible push among artists to create in new ways – and in their own spaces. Bedroom pop artists alone are proof of that.

Never before has an artist’s creative space – that physical, mental and even spiritual space where you have the freedom to breathe, dream and evolve creatively and as a human being – meant so much. And Genelec is perfectly poised to help artists make it work because no other monitor manufacturer tames the negative acoustic influences caused by the physical spaces in which artists create more than Genelec. Our goal has always been to help you adapt your physical space and setup so that it can produce pure, truthful sound. To us at Genelec, the space where you love to create has always mattered, and it always will.

Because with Genelec, as our Managing Director, Siamäk Naghian, says,

"The physical space is not the limitation. The only limitation is your imagination."

Be creative, anywhere.

At Genelec we have an unwavering belief that anyone can create professional-level sound at home, or wherever you like to create. So don’t worry if your setup is small or if you only have the most basic acoustic treatment. The beauty of Genelec monitors is that they actively adapt to any room. This combined with their neutral, transparent sound will allow you to hear how your tracks truly sound. You’ll immediately start producing better mixes that sound fantastic, even in other rooms and on different playback systems. With Genelec, you can create professional-quality music anywhere.

Challenges we can help you with

Sounding good on other systems

There’s nothing more disappointing than hearing your song on someone else’s system and finding that it sounds completely different from the way it sounded in your room.

A common problem in poorly-designed monitors is an over-emphasised bass & treble response, since you are much more likely to dial back the EQ during your recording and mixing to compensate, and so your mix will end up lacking in both LF and HF on other systems.

With Genelec you can be sure that every monitor ships with a beautifully flat, neutral frequency response, and if your room introduces some unwanted effects (i.e. some bass lift when the monitor is close to a wall), we give you the ability to tailor the response of your Genelecs accordingly. No other monitor gives you as much help in producing mixes that sound great - everywhere.

Taming difficult room acoustics

Many home studios are by necessity located in a space that is not primarily designed for recording purposes, and so you and your kit need to be adaptable.

While we’d suggest that you consider some basic acoustic treatment and follow our simple recommendations on how to position and set up your monitors (see our Monitor Setup Guide), our design philosophy has always been to minimise the negative acoustic influence of your studio so that you hear much more of your music - and much less of your room!

We achieve this by a combination of clever driver, cabinet and electronic design, meaning that you’ll hear precise, uncoloured audio even if you move your listening position. And with our simple rear-panel room correction switches, or GLM calibration software, you can further optimise your Genelec monitors for your individual studio.

Tight spaces

The advent of the digital audio workstation has empowered a whole generation of music makers to squeeze home studios into the most amazingly small spaces.

It’s natural then that your studio monitors need to be compact - without sacrificing the LF extension and generous playback levels that you need to make accurate decisions when recording and mixing.

Our range of monitors is truly staggering in their ability to deliver a huge sound in a small footprint – due in part to our eco-friendly recycled aluminium enclosures, whose thin walls and large internal volume produce a bass response and SPL that put many physically larger monitors to shame. And with our extensive range of speaker mounts and carry cases, positioning, adjusting and travelling with your Genelecs is easy too.
