6 steps to creating your Sonic Reference - Step 2: Getting started with GLM


To prepare for the official launch of Genelec’s new GLM 4 loudspeaker manager software, this series of 6 tutorials will guide you through every stage required to setup, calibrate and control a studio monitoring system so that it provides a true ‘Sonic Reference’, helping you produce mixes that translate consistently to other rooms and playback systems.

Aimed at engineers, creatives, and anyone who cares deeply about audio quality, this series will help your material sound exactly as you intended it – irrespective of how it is being distributed and consumed.

In this second tutorial, Darren Rose will show you how to get your monitoring system up and running using GLM loudspeaker manager software. He’ll cover:

• Installing GLM on Windows or Mac computers
• Setting up, calibrating and controlling your monitors using GLM
• Integrating a subwoofer into your monitoring system
• Genelec Smart Active Monitors, and some recommended setups
• How to combine different Smart Active Monitors to create a system
• The benefits of using GLM’s Cloud mode

The ‘Tests’ and ‘Materials’ sections located below the main presentation in GoToTraining will allow you to take a short 5-question test and access other content. Everyone successfully passing four or more modules in this series will receive a certificate, and will also be entered into a prize draw to win a pair of Genelec RAW 8320 monitors plus GLM kit.

Please note that the closing date for submitting your answers for the post-webinar questions is 23.59 GMT on 31st October, with the issuing of certificates and the announcement of the prize winner taking place during November.


Some basic knowledge of the purpose of audio monitoring systems and their requirements are recommended but not compulsory. As this series of tutorials progresses then access to Genelec Smart Active Monitors and GLM software is an advantage, but not essential.
