Union Editorial senior sound engineer Milos Zivkovic
Natick, MA (March 1, 2012)—Union Editorial in Los Angeles recently upgraded the larger of its two audio production and mixing studios with Genelec active monitors.
The facility regularly handles high-end agency clients, including Chevy, McDonald's, Fiat and Diet Pepsi, and a hit commercial featured on the 2011 Super Bowl broadcast, Volkswagen's "The Force" (which won five AICP Awards), as well as its sequel at the 2012 Super Bowl. The L.A.-based firm also does a fair share of feature film work and movie trailers.
The new monitoring system consists of three Genelec 8250A bi-amplified DSP monitors for the LCR array, a pair of Genelec 8240A bi-amplified DSP monitors for the left and right rear surrounds, and a Genelec 7260A active DSP subwoofer. The system was purchased from Universal City's RSPE Audio Solutions and installed late last year.
"We were looking for a speaker that could serve as a good mid-field monitor--not too big and not too small--because we have a pretty sizeable control room," said senior sound engineer Milos Zivkovic.
"I decided to go with the 8200 Series because they are just the right size and they also come with a lot of great features like the Genelec AutoCal automatic calibration system. Having things like an adjustable crossover in a speaker is fantastic. But the bottom line on the Genelec speakers is their clarity. You can hear everything and hear it accurately and without coloration."
