GLM 3Genelec has introduced GLM 3, incorporating beta Cloud services and Reference Level listening features into its acoustic environment optimisation loudspeaker software application.

GLM Cloud services are accessible from anywhere at any time, providing a secure back-up and instant access to the latest software updates. The new Reference Level features have been developed in response to global broadcast standards, which demand that calibrated listening SPLs are adhered to in order to make programmes interchangeable across a range of listening conditions.

GLM 3 provides registered users with both local and beta Cloud options, with the ability to switch between the two. The Cloud server offers space to store three full system calibrations – each with ten groups, amounting to 30 acoustic setups – while a Cloud Helpdesk facility enables users to submit GLM files to access online expert support and advice.

The Reference Level feature allows users to calibrate listening levels in accordance with ATSC A/85 and EBU R128 loudness standards, which combines the in-situ frequency response compensation and system alignment with the listening level calibrated to a loudness reference. GLM 3 now provides this crucial feature, without the need for a high-quality external monitor controller or other measurement tools.

Additionally, GLM 3 also comes with new personalisation features for customising a preferred response apart from the ideal flat response without sacrificing predictability.

Other improvements include the ability to adjust the sensitivity of each Genelec monitor’s ISS power-saving function, a microphone level checker and an indicator for used audio type, plus several other refinements, dialogue boxes and bug fixes. GLM 3 also provides a simple firmware update to allow all SAM monitors to enable these new features instantly.

‘With the addition of Cloud based services and loudness related Reference Level listening to GLM 3, we are once again redefining the industry’s workflow,’ says Genelec MD, Siamäk Naghian. ‘Just as the first iteration of GLM software showed the way forward with Smart Active Monitoring, so GLM 3 now lays the path for the future– and we clearly see a wealth of possibilities that will benefit our customers hugely.”

GLM 3 will be available to all GLM users as a free download from Genelec.
