Genelec 8260A Tri-Amplified DSP Active Monitoring System Helps Seattle’s Fullsound Recording Take It Up Another Notch

— Genelec’s acclaimed proprietary GLM™ and AutoCal™ technology are the key to success for Fullsound’s control rooms, which feature challenging physical dimensions —

Seattle, Washington-based Fullsound Recording studio owner Jeff Herrmann has been a Genelec fan for 25 years, all the way back before the glory days of Seattle’s revolutionary grunge music scene, when he recorded artists including Dr. Grind, Sinister Minister and Grunt Truck. Today, Herrmann continues his tradition of Genelec monitoring with the installation of a new pair of Genelec 8260A Tri-Amplified DSP monitors in Fullsound Recording’s main control room. Flanking the studio’s Avid C|24 Pro Tools HD3 controller and Neve summing mixer, the new 8260A monitors will take the studio into the next generation of Seattle music. Currently, jazz, adult contemporary rock and worship records make up much of Fullsound Recording’s and Herrmann’s portfolio, including that of his wife, worship music artist Maureen Herrmann. The 8260A’s replaced the studio’s existing pair of Genelec 1032A Bi-Amplified Monitors, which have been moved to the studio’s MIDI control room. The Genelec 8260A speakers were purchased through Account Manager Brad Lyons at GC Pro in Atlanta, Georgia.

“The 8260A’s sound stunning, which is what I’ve come to expect from Genelec over the years,? says Herrmann, who has owned three other commercial studios before opening Fullsound Recording six years ago. “But what really sold me was the Genelec Loudspeaker Management™ (GLM™) and AutoCal™ automated room calibration and sound system alignment DSP software. That’s a very strong selling point for a small control room that has some challenging dimensions.? Herrmann is referring to the control room’s 8.5-foot ceiling, a circumstance of the building the studio is housed in. “You stand back and the system scans the environment for you and notch-filters all the areas of concern, and what comes out is a dream environment that sounds amazing,? he says. The control room may be slightly height challenged but it’s plenty wide, and that, says Herrmann, can be its own kind of challenge. “The control room is 26 feet wide, which can make it hard to stay in the sweet spot as you move around the console and room,? he explains. “But the 8260A takes care of that too, giving me a stunning soundstage with a nice, wide sweet spot. It really lets you move around, which helps you stay comfortable during long sessions.?

Artists including Jake Nannery have recently used the 8260A monitors at Fullsound Recording, and Herrmann states, “Having the 8260As lets the world know that you’re a studio of substance and good sonic taste. That’s why I’ve stayed with Genelec for 25 years and will do so for another 25.?
