Genelec Offers GLM™ (Genelec Loudspeaker Manager™) Version 2.2 Software
Of major importance to early adopters of Genelec Smart Active Monitors is GLM V2.2’s inclusion of Distributed Bass Management Filters for legacy Smart Active Monitoring products including 8240, 8250, 8260 and 1238CF models. These filters now provide seamless integration with the new 7300 range of Smart Active subwoofers. Other firmware updates are included for every other model of Smart Active Monitoring product, as well as the GLM 8300-416 Network Adapter. The firmware updates are directly available through the GLM Acoustic Editor pages.
GLM V2.2 also enables the control of the 9301A Digital Multichannel Interface and 7350, 7360 and 7370 subwoofers, providing proper LF control for digital input monitoring environments. GLM calibration and control of Smart Active Monitoring systems is computer interfaced via the Genelec Network Adapter model 8300-416.
Genelec’s Smart Active Monitoring enables the use of automatic calibration of monitors in a listening space relative to the listening position. GLM AutoCal embodies years of research and data collection from hundreds of control rooms in music, post-production and broadcast applications. An industry first, AutoCal provides an integrated process where sophisticated calibration and optimization is calculated for level, delay, and equalization for every monitor in a GLM Group, based on measured response using a factory-calibrated Genelec 8300A acoustic measurement microphone (included). Groups can be defined as either a different listening position or a different set of monitors, or both. Groups can be duplicated and modified to suit the user or client’s needs. All parameters and settings are stored in GLM system Setup files or internally saved in the monitors and subwoofers if the GLM network needs to be disconnected.
Genelec users who have installed previous versions of 2.0 or 2.1 are urged to update to GLM V2.2. The software is available for free download for Mac OSX and Windows from the www.genelec.com website.
Genelec, the pioneer in Active Monitoring technology, is celebrating nearly 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, which many manufacturers are just now incorporating into their products. 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.
