6 steps to creating your Sonic Reference - Step 6: How GLM works – a deep technical dive

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 final tutorial, Genelec R&D director Aki Mäkivirta gives his expert insight into the principles of acoustic calibration, how and why GLM was developed, and the design philosophy that underpins it. He’ll be talking about both the history of room calibration and the theory of GLM operation, including:

  • Stereophonic reproduction and virtual sound images
  • Shared agreements about the reproduction system
  • Monitoring loudspeakers and the room as a system
  • Gear needed: measurement microphone, mic pre, measurement and analysis tools
  • Methods of measuring acoustics, from history to present
  • What needs to be calibrated: sound colour, time of flight, level
  • How these best practices are applied in GLM 4

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.
