Natick, MA (October 18, 2010)–Rolling Thunder Studios owner Nick Vasquez has installed five Genelec 8240A bi-amplfied DSP monitors and a 7270A active DSP subwoofer, purchased from dealer Sweetwater.
“These are great-sounding monitors,” exclaims Vasquez, who founded Rolling Thunder Studios 17 years ago and nurtured its expansion into new areas such as audio post production and scoring; Rolling Thunder recorded some of the score to director Michael Moore’s documentary, Capitalism: A Love Story.
“I traveled 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,” he says.
“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. They are fantastic monitors and I’m glad to have them in my studio.”
The LCR array is mounted atop the control room’s new Avid Icon D-Command console in the studio’s new year-old facility; the rear surround monitors are wall mounted.
