Genelec supports first-ever She Knows Tech Summit


NATICK, MA, February 23, 2021 — Genelec is proud to be supporting the female creative collective She Knows Tech (SKT) in their first-ever online conference, the She Knows Tech Summit. Taking place March 5-8, 2021, and coinciding with International Women’s Day, the Summit is open to everyone, regardless of their gender identity, and is packed with masterclasses, workshops, panels and networking events covering music production, audio engineering, music technology and more, and features a compelling lineup of inspirational womxn working in the music tech industry.

Budding musicians, producers, engineers, songwriters, artists, and multi-faceted creators are all welcome to the Summit, where they will learn how to take total control of their artistry, from songwriting and performing, to production and engineering.

SKT CEO and founder Jasmine Kok comments, “Our core mission is to close the music industry’s gender gap and to dispel the notion that womxn are not interested in music production and technology.”

SKT co-founder Meghan Smyth adds, “It’s been a challenging year for everyone, especially creatives. Now more than ever, we’re feeling a pull to gather the SKT community in order to share knowledge and inspire one another to stay focused on our goals. We designed the SKT Summit for everyone, whether you need a push to get back into a creative routine, or you’re looking for some fresh elements to bring into your already-productive flow.”

Genelec co-owner Maria Martikainen concludes by saying, “Being seen and having equal opportunities are one of the cornerstones of being able to reach your dreams and grow to be who you were meant to be. We at Genelec are very happy to support She Knows Tech, which aims to change the culture in our industry so that we are all being recognized. Equality and education are extremely important to us at Genelec, so this is a very natural collaboration. I encourage every girl and womxn to see all the possibilities in music technology, and find their way into the numerous different professions and roles in our industry.”

Founded at the Berklee College of Music, SKT has also drawn support for the Summit from Ableton, Spitfire Audio, Women in Music, She Is The Music, the Audio Engineering Society (AES) and Keychange EU. All Summit participants will also get the complimentary Digital Swag Bag, with extended trial codes, free plug-ins, and exclusive discounts from collaborating sponsors including Spitfire Audio, iZotope, Kilohearts, Baby Audio and Klevgrand.

Genelec, the pioneer in Active Monitoring technology, is celebrating over 40 years of designing and manufacturing active loudspeakers for true and accurate sound reproduction. Genelec is credited with promoting the concept of active transducer technology. Since its inception in 1978, Genelec has concentrated its efforts and resources into creating active monitors with unparalleled sonic integrity. The result is an active speaker system that has earned global acclaim for its accurate imaging, extremely high acoustic output from small enclosures, true high-fidelity with low distortion, and deep, rich bass.

Genelec is also celebrating over 10 years of its Smart Active Monitoring™ technology, which allows studio monitors to be networked, configured and calibrated for the user’s specific acoustic environment. Each Smart Active Monitor or subwoofer is equipped with advanced internal DSP circuitry, which tightly integrates with the GLM (Genelec Loudspeaker Manager) software application, running on Mac or PC. GLM’s reference microphone kit allows the user’s acoustic environment to be analyzed, after which GLM’s AutoCal feature optimizes each Smart Active Monitor for level, distance delay, subwoofer crossover phase and room response equalization, with the option of further fine tuning by the user. By minimizing the room’s influence on the sound, Smart Active Monitors deliver an unrivalled reference, with excellent translation between rooms.
