Baggpipe Studios installs Genelec monitors

Posted on: Tuesday 27th of February 2018

Baggpipe_image_smLocated in the Johanneshov district of Stockholm, the facility now occupied by Baggpipe Studios was previously the home of EMI Studios, the site has hosted sessions by artists including ABBA, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and producer Mutt Lange, to name just a few. Now that tradition of working with artists both established and emerging is continuing under the auspices of Baggpipe and a team consisting of amongst others music producer Anders Bagge, music executive Craig Logan and CEO Alvora Larsdotter.

A winning fusion of modern and vintage technology, the current Baggpipe Studios complex comprises two main commercial studios and seven smaller, songwriter/producer studios. From the installation of new hardwood floors to the choice of SSL Duality consoles, Baggpipe has been through several significant upgrades in recent years. Willem Bleeker is Studio Manager and Engineer/Mixer at Baggpipe, and had found that although he was fond of some of the previous monitors “they had always been an issue with clients, who often said that they weren’t happy with the sonic image. The sound was either ‘too sharp’ or had ‘too much bass’… it never seemed to be quite right.”

It wasn’t long before Patrick and I started talking about something more permanent. He showed me the mighty pair of 1234A SAM studio monitors that he thought would be perfect for the main control room of Studio 1, and the 1238DF SAM monitors he felt would best suit Studio 2.”

Meanwhile, the facility’s seven production rooms each now feature a pair of 8340A two-way SAM monitors, with two of the rooms also boasting 7360A subwoofers. Finally, a multi-purpose meeting and conference space has been fitted with a pair of 8331As from The Ones range, once again finished in white.
