Rolling Thunder opts for Genelec

Nick Vasquez installs Genelec monitors in Rolling Thunder

18 October 2010

USA - Rolling Thunder Studios in Traverse City, Michigan has installed a 5.1 monitoring system from Genelec.

For its new year-old facility, studio Owner Nick Vasquez has installed five Genelec 8240A Bi-Amplfied DSP Monitors and a 7270A Active DSP Subwoofer, purchased from dealer Sweetwater. The L-C-R array is mounted atop the control room's new Avid Icon D-Command console, and the rear surround monitors are wall mounted.

"These are great-sounding monitors," says Vasquez, who founded Rolling Thunder Studios 17 years ago and nurtured its expansion into new areas such as audio post production and scoring. "I travelled to Sweetwater, where my salesman Brian VanDeKeere and I listened to a lot of monitors, and the Genelecs just sounded better than any of them to me. They are the most versatile, in terms of being able to handle all kinds of music, as well as the most precise and with the most clarity, especially in the midrange."
