Why do KLANG show files and log files have a time offset?
KLANG uses UTC timestamps throughout to support devices with multiple time zone settings simultaneously. This explains why you see a constant time offset.
See details here to determine the offset: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coordinated_Universal_Time
What kind of network switches work with Dante?
Generally, managed switches with deactivated EEE are preferred for Dante networks.
How does Dante Follow / AutoConnect work?
KLANG:kontroller can be configured to automatically patch Dante to the mix output of a KLANG processor.
How many KLANG devices can be connected?
Depending on your input channel requirements and the number of mixes required, more than one KLANG device can be connected to the same control network. Input channels arriving on KLANG:fabrik e.g. via MADI, can be routed to other KLANG:fabrik’s and KLANG:vier (48kHz only). Dante input channels can be routed to as many receiving devices as needed. Depending on the network load Dante Multicast flows have to be used and managed switches with proper IGMP snooping and QoS configuration should be used.
Most KLANG immersive processors can be configured to work in a cascade of units.
There is no limit other than your network limitiation as to how many KLANG:fabrik and KLANG:vier can be added to your network. KLANG:app will show each KLANG device available on your network.
How can I store and recall presets?
Presets are by default stored inside the immersive processor hardware and can be recalled directly via KLANG:app. In order to backup presets or transfer them from one KLANG device to another, simply connect with KLANG:app go to the CONFIG > PRESET page, select a preset from the dropdown and click TRANSFER. Presets are interchangable between different immersive processors e.g. between KLANG:fabrik and KLANG:konductor.
How can I listen or CUE into mixes?
All KLANG immersive processors allow for CUEing into all available mixes. This is particularly helpful for monitor engineers that need to constantly switch between mixes. Details on the CUE functionality can be found here.

Which Sampling Rates are supported?
KLANG:vier can receive (Dante and ADAT comp.) and transmit (Dante) audio with 44.1 and 48kHz.
KLANG:fabrik can receive and transmit digitial audio (Dante, MADI, ADAT comp.) with single speed sampling rages 44.1/48kHz and double speed sampling rates 88.2/96kHz. At double speed, ADAT comp. inputs and outputs use SMUX format. MADI input can receive 28/32channel with high frame rate and SMUX. Transmit is always high frame rate with 32 channels.
KLANG:quelle can receive Dante audio with 44.1/48kHz, 88.2/96kHz and 176.4/192kHz.
KLANG:vokal, DMI-KLANG and :kontroller and :konductor can work with 48kHz and 96kHz and offer the exact same channel count / mix count with both sample rates.
Do I need special headphones or in-ears to experience 3D sound?
No. KLANG incorporates binaural technology and processes the sound inside a KLANG processor to work with your own pair of standard stereo headphones or in-ears. In fact, it is not important if your headphones are open or closed, electrostatic, dynamic or use balanced armature drivers as most in-ears do. You can use universal fit in-ears or custom molded in-ears. Just make sure that the polarity is correct and the left and right signals go to the correct ears.
