Triton has released US podcast listening numbers for the period between July 31 and Sept. 3, 2023
Known for its unique country and western flavored interpretations of pop hits, German band The BossHoss has upgraded its studio with a Genelec 8341-based monitoring system ahead of recording its new album.
Based in Berlin, the seven-piece band formed in 2004 and are self-proclaimed Country Trash Punk Rockers. It has released 10 studio albums to date. When heading into the recording sessions for its slated 2021 release, the group turned to German audio supplier SMM for advice on how to improve the sessions.
The band is now using a single pair of 8341s in a stereo configuration. “Since we have installed the 8341s, we don’t use our midfield speakers anymore,” said Sascha Vollmer, BossHoss guitarist, songwriter and producer. “The stereo image is second to none — really precise, accurate and exactly what we needed.”
Vollmer has been impressed with the Genelec Loudspeaker Manager software’s ability to auto-calibrate the 8341 setup to suit the band’s ever-changing recording environment. “Having the freedom to adapt with the GLM application was ideal for us as we are often having to change furniture as well as instruments hanging on the walls,” he said. “GLM gave us flexibility as well as quick and easy configuration if we wanted to switch rooms.”
The 8341s are part of Genelec’s “The Ones” line of three-way coaxial, ultimate point source monitors. According to the manufacturer, The Ones’ design provides extraordinary imaging, extended frequency response, controlled directivity and fatigue-free listening.
Vollmer says he also appreciates the heightened level of detail in his mixes: “Sometimes when we’re listening back to each song, we realise that we have to add extra elements. We probably wouldn’t have picked up on that type of detail with any previous monitor. That’s why we want to continue to use Genelec for future recordings and mixing sessions – we don’t want to miss anything else.”
