Genelec has announced a new YouTube channel — the Genelec USA Learning Channel — which will be updated frequently with new content ranging from production tips and tricks to interviews with industry pros.
The hosts of the new channel will be Genelec territory managers Paul Stewart and John Whitcore. Visitors who subscribe to the channel before November 30, 2017, and share their subscription publicly on social media, will be entered to win a pair of limited-edition red Genelec 8030 Studio Monitors. The drawing is open to U.S. residents only.
“Paul and I have been working hard to plan out the content that users have been asking for, and stuff that we would like to see personally,” said Whitcore. “Sometimes we have the answers to our users’ pressing questions, whether it’s troubleshooting in the studio or just the basics of monitoring, and sometimes we bring in an outside expert to illuminate the issue.
“We keep it fun, because we know sometimes these topics can be too dry or technical for some visitors’ tastes. We have a real passion for this content, and we hope that shines through. See you on the channel!”

The need for good directivity in loudspeakers cannot be sufficiently emphasised and remains an area that speaker designers sometimes neglect. The result destroys acoustic realism and makes loudspeakers sound like loudspeakers instead of like the original sound.
One of the most frequent questions that audio manufacturers get is whether their engineering customers should mix sound on headphones or studio monitors. The answer is simple. High quality mixes can be achieved on either…or both.
