GLM Software

For 15 years, GLM software has worked with our Smart Active Monitors to minimise the unwanted acoustic influences of your room and help your mixes sound great, everywhere. GLM 4.1 includes the new AutoCal 2 calibration algorithm and a host of new features - delivering a much faster calibration time and a more precise frequency response.

Lost in translation?

If you’ve ever been frustrated that your mixes don’t translate well to other systems, it’s because your monitors and your room are interacting to produce a frequency response that can be far from the neutral and smooth response that you need to create a great mix that translates consistently to the outside world.

Unleash your creativity

GLM 4 software tightly integrates with the advanced internal DSP circuitry which our growing family of Genelec Smart Active Monitors and Subwoofers is equipped with, from the tiny 8320 to the massive 1236. GLM 4’s reference microphone kit allows your acoustic environment to be analysed, after which GLM 4.1’s AutoCal 2 feature quickly optimises each monitor for level, distance delay, subwoofer crossover phase and room response equalisation, with the option for you to further fine tune the system. So whether you want to improve an already excellent room, or are working in more challenging or ’lively’ sounding spaces, GLM is your friend.

Total control

And that’s not all. Having optimised your monitoring system for your room, GLM acts as a powerful monitor controller – giving you the ability to switch between monitors, maintain precise control of listening levels, and much more.

Created in conjunction with designer Harri Koskinen, the intuitive new GLM 4 user interface fuses clean, attractive aesthetics with a unique character. Harri's inspired hexagonal design also supports the idea of natural growth, so that GLM 4 will help you develop your own listening skills and allow your monitoring system to expand and evolve. And with a choice of 10 languages and both light and dark colour themes, GLM 4 is the most user-friendly version of GLM ever.

Whether you’re a new Genelec user - or you’re an existing user who wants to upgrade to the latest version - then GLM 4 can be downloaded free via the links below.

Get ready to network

Please note that to enable GLM software to integrate with your Smart Active Monitors, you’ll also need the Genelec network adaptor kit (8300-601) - which includes the GLM network adaptor, 8300A calibration microphone and microphone holder, 1.8 m USB cable and Quick Connection Guide. The network adaptor connects to your Mac or PC via the supplied USB cable, and to your monitors via a 5 metre CAT cable (which is supplied separately with each monitor).

GLM 4 can’t control ‘classic’ Genelec analogue monitors. If you’re using our standard active models, be sure to adjust their rear-panel DIP switches for a neutral frequency response after placement in the room. Full details can be found in every user manual.

With GLM 4 you can...

• Automatically adjust in-room frequency response, distance delay and listening level.
• Adjust, personalise and store any automatic setting freely.
• Create and expand systems to suit all types of stereo, multi-channel or 3D immersive audio formats.
