Natick, MA (May 2, 2017)—Genelec has released its version 2.2 GLM (or Genelec Loudspeaker Manager) monitor control networking software. GLM manages connectivity and operational parameters of all models of Genelec Smart Active Monitoring studio monitors and subwoofers.
In version 2.2, GLM offers upgrades to the performance and operation of Smart Active Monitors and of the GLM User Interface, according to the company. This allows all Smart Active Monitoring models (now up to 40 models) to be integrated for simple stereo, stereo with sub, multiple subs, multichannel as well as immersive environments with either digital or analog audio paths.
A key feature of GLM V2.2 is its inclusion of Distributed Bass Management Filters for legacy Smart Active Monitoring products including 8240, 8250, 8260 and 1238CF models. These filters now provide complete integration with Genelec’s 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 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.
Further, Genelec’s Smart Active Monitoring enables the use of automatic calibration of monitors in a listening space relative to the listening position. AutoCal provides an integrated process where complex calibration and optimization needs are calculated for level, delay, and equalization within every monitor in a GLM Group based on measured response using a factory-calibrated Genelec 8300A acoustic measurement microphone (also included). Groups can be defined as either a different listening position or a different set of monitors, or both. Groups can also 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.
