What are the key benefits of the GLM 4.2 update?
• The new GRADE report feature uses all the data automatically collected by GLM’s AutoCal 2 algorithm to create an in-depth PDF evaluation that details critical aspects of your monitoring system and room performance, including the benefits of GLM’s calibration result and a range of measured room-acoustic effects.
• Before AutoCal 2 takes its measurements, a new ‘Preparations for Measurements’ page is displayed, giving placement instructions for GLM’s calibration microphone and asking for optional room-dimension details and a brief description of the monitoring system to be calibrated. These will be used for GLM’s GRADE analysis and for documenting the system for later reference.
• Improved support of MIDI controllable GLM functions, including volume level, system mute and dim, level presets, bass management bypass activation, and group-preset selections.
• The new calibration group ID and subwoofer group ID features further assist the creation and calibration of scalable monitoring systems from stereo to immersive. Improved monitor-status indicators offer a more extensive overview of the settings and state of each monitor.
• New system-layout templates help to create layouts for Dolby Atmos 9.1.4, Dolby Atmos 9.1.6, Sony 360RA and NHK 22.2 systems.
• The gain control step size in GLM’s Acoustic Editor has changed from 1dB to 0.1dB, enabling much more accurate edits to filtering.
• Improvements have been made to the ‘Level’ info panel used to display GLM’s main functions, including mute, dim, preset levels, bass management bypass, and calibration status.
• Keyboard shortcuts are now available for more commands. Note: Shortcuts only work when GLM’s main window is active.
• Easy product registration is now available inside GLM.
