GLM-less volume control

Any news on the development to be able to control the volume on the 8000 series without having the GLM suit running?
When can we most likely expect a solution?

Having everything hooked up digitally without having a computer running in order to be able to control the volume is very much desirable.

Any info is very welcome.
Thank you.

Hi,

I can say that the development work is going forward with full steam, but unfortunately I can't give you any exact date when it will be released. :)

Of course an exact date was not expected. :)
But the question remains if such a possibility (device?) for the current (!) 8200 line up will see the light of day in 2013 or rather later?!

What does actually happen when the GLM software crashes while listening?
Hopefully the speakers (8200 series) then do NOT automatically play at maximum volume?

Hi,

Of course not. If the speakers loose the network connection, they will continue to play at the same level.

I have a question if future development of the GLM software will feature autostart together with windows? The procedure of a windows startup currently requires me to launch the GLM software manually and manually enter the system setup, after that is done I can minimize it to the taskbar, but not to the windows tray. When I turn my computer off I am later required to manually quit the GLM software for windows to properly shut down (as when you need to save a word document before you quit a word editing program).

It is quite evident that the software, as in it's curret state, is designed for 24/7 workstations. I would like to request that future development of the software would allow a "set-up and forget" possibility, where once I have set the calibration of my genelec speaker setup can simply have the program running in the background all the time with only the big volume fader connected to the powermate working. Of course, the aforementioned feature should not require any user interference except for the actual volume adjustments, even when booting/rebooting/shutting down the computer.

Hi,

the automatic loading on startup is no problem with putting your setup-file into the autostart folder. Unfortunately for the shutdown procedure I have no workaround either.

Best regards,
