Genelec Masterclass Session now on YouTube

Posted on: Friday 25th of March 2022

For the last few months, Genelec, has been hosting conversations with some of the leading audio professionals working today. Several of those sessions – known as the ongoing Genelec Masterclass series – have now been compiled into a new YouTube playlist, which will be updated as more sessions go live in the future. You can access the playlist here, which includes the premiere of the brand-new Masterclass with Dutch DJ and producer Ummet Ozcan (part one of a two-part discussion). 
The Genelec Masterclass series features long-form discussions with influential figures in audio, including engineers, producers, artists and academics. These sessions are lecture-length and centre around a deep dive into either a particular topic of interest to the subject or their overall approach to their craft. The company says the goal of them is to provide “a forum for these individuals to share their accumulated expertise and perspective and pass it on to other Genelec users and the wider audio community.”
Aside from the new Ozcan discussion, which you can see below, three English-language Genelec Masterclass sessions have been posted and included in the new playlist: the first is a conversation with pioneering producer, engineer, inventor, designer, and educator George Massenburg (Earth, Wind & Fire, Linda Ronstadt, Lyle Lovett, Herbie Hancock, Billy Joel and The Chicks, just to name a few), who discusses his career, immersive mixing, and how his motivation is driven by his desire to solve problems and make things sound great. 

The second, “What Should I Know About Mastering?”, features producer Klas “Sasse” Lindblad sharing in-depth mastering knowledge and tips, while the third sees Sylvia Massy (Tool, System of a Down, Prince and Johnny Cash) demonstrate examples from her growing collection of vintage and rare microphones – one of the most significant private caches of historic mics in the recording community.
Genelec’s Masterclass series is part of the company’s ongoing online educational initiative, which also includes a separate series, Live from the Cave, featuring more casual, informal conversations moderated by Genelec Inc. Sales Manager Paul Stewart.
