Genelec Unveils New Features and Unrivalled User Experience with GLM 4




Genelec has announced a free upgrade to its hugely popular GLM software for audio monitor system setup, calibration and control.

The next-generation GLM 4 now gives users of Genelec Smart Active Monitors the benefits of Mac Catalina compatibility, an elegant new user interface, and a host of valuable new features. By minimizing the room’s distractive acoustic influence on the sound quality, GLM 4 provides an unrivalled and truthful sonic reference - wherever the user chooses to work. GLM 4 therefore powers creativity, producing mixes that translate consistently to other rooms and playback systems.

GLM 4 integrates seamlessly with the intelligent DSP hardware within each Smart Active Monitor, allowing each monitor and subwoofer to be networked, configured and individually calibrated for the user’s specific acoustic environment. GLM’s reference microphone kit allows the user’s room acoustics to be accurately analyzed, after which GLM’s AutoCal feature automatically optimizes each monitor and subwoofer for level, distance delay, subwoofer crossover phase and room response equalization. At that point the user has many options for further manual adjustment, thereby achieving complete personalization if required.

Compatible with Windows and Mac OS, including 10.15 Catalina, GLM 4 comes with a brand new user interface for faster, more intuitive and easier navigation. Created in conjunction with leading industrial designer Harri Koskinen, the new user interface fuses clean, attractive aesthetics with a unique character. The hexagonal design also supports the idea of natural growth, developing the user’s listening skills and allows a monitoring system to be easily expanded from mono to complex immersive as the user’s needs evolve.

GLM 4 offers new features including dedicated setup and control functions for immersive monitoring, and excellent compatibility with the increasing number of audio monitoring standards in international mastering, broadcast, OTT and film. GLM 4 supports Cloud-based and local storage of settings, giving the user options for complete mobility, with the Cloud helpdesk always on hand to provide remote consultancy via a team of Genelec audio experts.

In conjunction with the cutting-edge DSP hardware GLM 4 supports fully scalable systems from mono and stereo to more than 80 channels of immersive reproduction. The tight integration of hardware and software also ensures the best possible system performance and dynamic range, and allows the user to switch between monitor setups without having to use extra DAW outputs or invest in costly external hardware.

Additionally, GLM 4 users can benefit from fixed and low latency performance without having to bypass any monitoring software sitting on the master audio buss. This eases the creative process by avoiding the need to switch between ‘record’ and ‘mix’ modes, and once calibrated, GLM 4 settings can also be stored within the monitor or subwoofer itself, avoiding the possibility of accidental changes.

Genelec Managing Director Siamäk Naghian comments: “GLM 4 is the distillation of many years of continuous research into the effects of room acoustics on monitoring system performance, and will help to streamline the user’s workflow and elevate the quality of their mixes. In line with our design philosophy on sustainability, GLM 4 is also completely backwards-compatible with all generations of Smart Active Monitors. This means that professional users can not only be confident that GLM 4 is the most advanced, efficient and intuitive room calibration system on the market, but it also guarantees that Genelec Smart Active Monitors are an extremely secure, scalable and future-proof long-term investment.”
