Natick, MA (October 26, 2015)—Genelec has introduced Version 2 of GLM (Genelec Loudspeaker Manager) monitor control networking system software.
GLM manages connectivity to all models of SAM (Smart Active Monitoring) studio monitors and subwoofers—up to 30 on the network—covering all types and sizes of stereo, multichannel, or 3D immersive audio applications. The GLM 2.0 software is available for Windows and Mac and features automatic adjustment of levels, distance delays and flexible room response compensation equalization with the AutoCal calibration system. 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.
With its user interface, users can reportedly adapt any of 16 models of Genelec SAM monitors to most listening environments with GLM 2.0, allowing reduced perceived differences between listening environments or positions. GLM AutoCal provides what is said to be the industry’s first integrated process for complete automated measurement, analysis, and adjustment of every monitor on the GLM control network, using a factory-calibrated Genelec 8300A acoustic measurement microphone (included).
Updated features for V2 include a new Network Adaptor that has both microphones and volume control inputs; the expanded use of Groups in a Setup; independent input types for each Group (analog or digital); independent AutoCal settings for each Group; five Groups available for each Setup; SPL display on the main GLM screen; and more. The upgrade path for users who want to update their GLM from V1 to V2 is described as intuitive.
