About the Genelec S360 Smart Active Monitor:
The Genelec S360 is a precision SAM-Series, 2-way active studio monitor designed to provide reference-quality monitoring for applications where the requirement is high SPL for multiple listeners at a distance—from large, immersive setups in post-production studios or film-mixing stages to live monitoring for music-production playback. Housed in a compact, low-diffraction enclosure with quality Finnish woodwork, the S360 is equipped with a 10" woofer and an integrated, extended Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) supporting its 1.7" titanium-diaphragm compression tweeter.

About the Genelec Aural ID software:
Genelec Aural ID is a smartphone app that computes how your head, external ear and upper body affect and color audio arriving from any given direction. This effect is called the Head-Related Transfer Function (HRTF), and it is totally unique to every user. Aural ID models your personal head and upper torso features to calculate your own individual HRTF, delivering a file to you that then can be integrated into your audio workstation via a growing number of third-party plug-ins.

Genelec, the pioneer in Active Monitoring technology, is celebrating over 40 years of designing and manufacturing active loudspeakers for true and accurate sound reproduction. Genelec is credited with promoting the concept of active transducer technology. Since its inception in 1978, Genelec has concentrated its efforts and resources into creating active monitors with unparalleled sonic integrity. The result is an active speaker system that has earned global acclaim for its accurate imaging, extremely high acoustic output from small enclosures, true high-fidelity with low distortion, and deep, rich bass.

Genelec is also celebrating over 10 years of its Smart Active Monitoring™ technology, which allows studio monitors to be networked, configured and calibrated for the user’s specific acoustic environment. Each Smart Active Monitor or subwoofer is equipped with advanced internal DSP circuitry, which tightly integrates with the GLM (Genelec Loudspeaker Manager) software application, running on Mac or PC. GLM’s reference microphone kit allows the user’s acoustic environment to be analyzed, after which GLM’s AutoCal feature optimizes each Smart Active Monitor for level, distance delay, subwoofer crossover phase and room response equalization, with the option of further fine tuning by the user. By minimizing the room’s influence on the sound, Smart Active Monitors deliver an unrivalled reference, with excellent translation between rooms.
