6 steps to creating your Sonic Reference - Step 3: GLM advanced features


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 third tutorial, Markus Kahelin will take a closer look at some of GLM’s more advanced features, showing how a scalable Smart Active Monitoring system can be created, and how GLM is perfectly equipped to help you handle any audio format, from stereo to highly complex immersive audio. He’ll cover:

• GLM’s Immersive Systems Sound Character Profiler
• How to edit acoustic settings
• The importance of bass management
• Using Dolby DARDT calculators to help specify a monitoring system
• How GLM supports standard calibrated listening levels
• Getting help and support

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.


A basic knowledge of acoustics and GLM is required. Access to Genelec Smart Active Monitors and GLM software is an advantage, but not essential.
