Genelec GLM 3.0
Spotlight: Genelec GLM 3.0
Genelec have introduced version 3 of their loudspeaker manager software. GLM 3 will provide each registered user with both local and beta Cloud options, with the ability to switch between the two. The Cloud server offers space to store three full system calibrations – each with 10 groups, amounting to 30 acoustic setups – while Cloud Helpdesk facility enables users to submit GLM files to access online expert support and advice.
The new Reference Level feature allows users to calibrate listening levels in accordance with ATSC A/85 and EBU R128 loudness standards, which combines the in-situ frequency response compensation and system alignment with the listening level calibrated to a loudness reference. GLM 3 now provides this crucial feature, without the need for a high quality external monitor controller or other measurement tools.
Additionally, in recognition of the fact that a predictable frequency response is the key to reference monitoring, GLM 3 also comes with new personalisation features, making it easy for the user to customise their preferred response and depart from the ideal flat response – without sacrificing predictability.
Other notable improvements include the ability to adjust the sensitivity of each Genelec monitor’s ISS power-saving function, a microphone level checker and an indicator for used audio type, plus several other refinements, dialogue boxes and bug fixes.
GLM 3 also provides a simple firmware update to allow all SAM monitors to enable these new features instantly.
