Genelec unveils new features and unrivalled user experience with GLM 4 : Score Music Tech

Genelec – the global leader in professional loudspeakers – has announced a major 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 minimising 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.

Based on decades of research data from thousands of studios worldwide, 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 analysed, after which GLM’s AutoCal feature automatically optimises each monitor and subwoofer for level, distance delay, subwoofer crossover phase and room response equalisation.

At that point the user has many options for further manual adjustment, thereby achieving complete personalisation if required. This level of flexibility makes GLM 4 the perfect tool both for users looking to fine tune an already excellent room, and those working in more challenging spaces not originally designed for creative use.

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 that users will find logical and hugely satisfying. Koskinen’s inspired hexagonal design also supports the idea of natural growth, in the sense that GLM helps develop the user’s own 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 all the functions of its GLM 3 predecessor, with the addition of 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.
