Using GLM with 3rd party analog calibration source

Using GLM with 3rd party analog calibration source

Is it possible to work GLM software with 3rd party calibration hardware?

I have RME UCX, SMAART7, Earthworks M50 and Mic calibrator and I would like to use GLM software to manually calibrate my Genelec 8240a. I would like to launch GLM to detect 8240a through CAT5 cable connection directly from 8240a to laptop and do all required calibration then save it into internal DSP of 8240a.

The problem is, GLM does not detect 8240a?! Does this mean, it is ONLY designed to work with GLM hardware and it is not possible to calibrate Genelec 8200 Series by its software?

I think from the setup I have, I want to send analog signal to 8240a from RME UCX then the measurement mic read acoustic waves and send it back to RME UCX to GLM for transfer function correction.

I hope there is a chance for that and not to be forced to buy GLM hardware.

Kind regards to all,

Hi Alshokani,

if you want to access the DSP od the 8200 series you need the Genelec Hardware.

GLM is available as a free download for you to have a play with in demo mode, but to use its functionality you need the GLM hardware kit that includes a calibrated mic and network adapter.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for clarification. I thought talking to DSP is through direct network connection through standard protocol.
I would suggest adding a small note into product information for 8200 Series that the DSP is ONLY accessible with GLM hardware (Optional part).

Hopefully, in the future, the ability to access DSP through standard network protocol will give a great chance for research and analysis to gain more control options that may help in engineering work.

Best to all.
