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

Whether you’re a seasoned GLM user, or you’re simply looking to elevate the quality and reliability of your mixes, this series will give you the guidance you need to help take your work to the next level. Attendees are actively encouraged to ask questions and participate in the Q&A session at the end of each tutorial.

Immediately after each session, participants will get the chance to answer a series of online questions about the tutorial. Everyone successfully passing 4 or more modules will then receive a certificate, and will also be entered into a prize draw to win a pair of Genelec RAW 8320 Smart Active Monitors and GLM kit.
