Los Angeles (February 13, 2007)–XM Productions/Effanel Music implemented Genelec 8200 Series DSP Monitoring Systems for the Grammy Awards Show telecast this past Sunday. The system was comprised of 8250 and 8240 monitors along with the 7260 subwoofer and were used in both XM Productions/Effanel Music’s L7 truck for the music mix, as well as in the mirrored system in the ORB (Offline Remix Booth).

The audio portion of the broadcast was supervised by Phil Ramone and Hank Neuberger of the Producers & Engineers Wing of The Recording Academy, while the music mixers included John Harris and Eric Schilling, as well as Joel Singer, who handled the orchestral music mixes.
Singer, orchestra music mixer and XM Productions/Effanel Music’s lead engineer, stated, “Genelec monitoring represents everything we’ve come to expect from a high end studio speaker. Musically these are the best sounding speakers we’ve used and they deliver show after show for us. With the ability to utilize DSP to adapt the surround speaker field you feel comfortable knowing your monitoring is spot on.”
