6 steps to creating your Sonic Reference - Step 4: GLM ‘Power User’ 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 fourth tutorial, Markus Kahelin goes deeper into GLM’s feature set to show how to design, calibrate, manage and troubleshoot larger, more sophisticated monitoring systems – and how to successfully tackle challenging acoustical environments. He’ll be discussing:

• Designing and creating large networks of monitors
• The importance of X-curve and modified X-curve features
• Using multiple subwoofers
• How to optimise the Genelec W371 Adaptive Woofer System
• Genelec network topologies
• The use of monitor controllers
• Troubleshooting your monitoring system
• Trimming and personalising system frequency response

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.


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