GLM 2.0 for OSX, when?

Padawan Viestejä: 39 Liittymispäivä: 22.7.2014 Viimeisimmät viestit
Hi,

I want to buy the 8351 but I can't because I need the OSX version of the GLM software. I know, 'in the first quarter'. Can someone be more specific?

Thanks,

Serge

We've just been informed that 8351's won't be available ex Genelec until week 15, so i assume by the time they are available to purchase,the MAC version of GLM will be released or very close to it.

Don't forget you can still buy them and listen to them as a normal speaker straight out of the box, the GLM software isn't shipped with the speakers or GLM kits so you have to download it from here, so isay buy them as soon as you see them and get the software as soon as it is released.

Illka has a thread in FAQ's and factory announcexments.

Hello Steve,

Thank you for your reply. I don't understand how the speakers can operate without GLM software:
- a setup needs to be done (configuration).
- the software is needed for volume control.

Am I wrong?

The speakers will pass analog audio without needing to setup (not sure about digital because we still haven't received them here)

You can run the speakers without calibration, it wont be ideal, but it will give you audio, in regards to volume control it all depends on what sources you are using, again in the short term if using a MAC/PC as a source you could use the volume control of the computer...

Hi,

All Genelec DSP speakers and subwoofers can naturally be operated without the GLM software, software offers only additional features such as AutoCal calibration but it is not required for operating the speakers. This applies equally to both analogue and digital input signals. Newest models such as RAM-L amplifier based speakers, 8320 and 8330 do no have any DIP switches any more so digital channel selection must be done through the GLM. They default to A+B channel selection at the factory.

Back panel of 8351 offers a variety of controls (AES/EBU channel, room EQ etc) which can be operated through DIP switched: https://www.flickr.com/photos/genelec/1 ... 3995768674 (image is 8250 but the controls are the same)

System volume can be controlled from the source device, either analogue or digital.

Please let me know if there are more questions! :)
