Genelec celebrate 15 years of GLM with major 4.1 update
Posted on: Friday 3rd of September 2021
Genelec is marking the 15th anniversary of its GLM loudspeaker management software with the introduction of GLM 4.1 for Genelec Smart Active Monitors and Subwoofers. The update brings with it the new AutoCal 2 automatic room calibration algorithm – which Genelec says delivers more precise adjustment in less time than previously possible thanks to 64-bit architecture and completely new code.
GLM 4.1 draws on data from a database of real world room calibrations, to make its adjustments to the DSP hardware within Genelec Smart Active Monitors, allowing each monitor and subwoofer to be networked, configured and individually calibrated for the specific acoustic environments. The system uses the GLM reference microphone to analyse room acoustics, after which each monitor and subwoofer can be automatically calibrated for relative level and relative distance delay, plus subwoofer crossover phase and frequency response. It offers a increased number of EQ filters for extra flexibility and a Solo-X mode for faster soloing of monitors when working with immersive content. GLM also offers personalisation options, including the calibration of absolute listening level in dB SPL, according to global broadcast, OTT, gaming and film standards.
