1038B tri-amplified monitors as the main monitoring system, augmented with a pair of 7070A active subwoofers

Cash Money Records recently took delivery of a new Studio Tour Bus from Vulcan Coach Corporation for its touring artists that is outfitted with a built-in recording studio that includes a pair of Genelec 1038B tri-amplified monitors as the main monitoring system, augmented with a pair of 7070A active subwoofers.
Cash Money Records is home to artists such as Birdman, Lil Wayne, and Drake.
The new studio has a rear monitoring wall loaded with Genelec 1038B’s, as well as a full Avid Pro Tools rig and Avid C|24 mixing interface. Bruce Basden, owner of Vulcan Coach, worked with Mark Jones of Cash Money to develop the look and feel of this studio, building on the previous successes of Vulcan Studio Coaches.
The studio is ensconced in multiple layers of soundproofing and proprietary acoustical treatments to create the right sonic environment. The design features a “room-within-a-room” approach to ensure complete isolation.
The vocal booth is an additional room within the already heavily isolated studio compartments, with the end result of impressive STC ratings.
The Genelec 1038B’s were chosen for their accurate mids and highs, and the 7070A’s for their ability to maintain an articulate low end at even extreme volumes, says Anthony Fernandez of Miami based Pro Audio Nerds, the studio consultant for this project.
Fernandez recalls that he first experienced Genelec speakers when he was working with Miami’s famous The Hit Factory Studios. “I really came to love how the Genelecs sound,” he says.
Basden says the amount of sound pressure that the studio compartment can contain is enormous. “These are not project studios I build on these buses – they are fully equipped, state-of-the-art, serious recording studios that let these artists lay down a vibe whenever it strikes them,” says Basden.
He adds, “the sound accuracy and pressure levels are incredible. When you close the door, the studio becomes seriously airtight, and you can really feel the bass punch you in the gut. With these buses, the artists will never have to miss a beat.”
