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
Do I need a WiFi router? Which kind is best?
You only need a WiFi router, if you want to connect KLANG:app on smartphones or tables, e.g. for personal mixing or for a monitor engineer when working on the stage. A hardwired ethernet connection is always the best choice for critical communication links, e.g. when running the DiGiCo console integration. We recommend to use a hardwired ethernet connect whenever possible, especially for laptops or computers with an ethernet port.
There are two different frequency bands for WiFi – 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. We recommend to use dual band WiFi routers or Access Points. The 2.4 GHz band might get very busy or noisy when several mobile devices are around. The 5 GHz band tends to be the better choice. In many systems it is possible to define unique SSID to the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands, so it is easy to see on a mobile device on which band you are working on. Modern mesh routers are more intelligent and tend to provide the best performance in all situations.
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 :apps can be connected to KLANG immersive processors?
Our products are designed and tested to be used with at least 1 :app or :kontroller per mix, plus 2 :apps for engineers. In most cases is is possible to use even more apps, there is no fixed limit.
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.
