How disable and enable the built-in demo mode feature

faq icon to expand accordian

It is possible to generally disable demo mode. This is particularly useful to prevent the demo mode button to appear in case KLANG:apps are disconnected from KLANG hardware network. Users might click the button accidentally and not notice that they are now mixing the built-in demo song instead of their own in-ear mix.

To disable, go to ADMIN mode and log in to a KLANG:fabrik/KLANG:vier mix or the built in demo mode. Then, navigate to CONFIG > INFO > Set (button) > Advanced > DON’T show demo mode. Fully restart KLANG:app. Now the demo mode will not be listed in the CONNECT screen anymore.

To enable again, go to ADMIN mode and navigate to CONFIG > CONNECT. Press and hold the refresh ICON (circular arrow at the bottom) for 4 seconds.

Does KLANG:app support multi-touch?

faq icon to expand accordian

On iOS and Android multi-touch is inherently supported. On Windows KLANG:app can be used with a multi-touch display, i.e. several faders and icons can be moved in parallel. However, on Mac OS X multi-touch displays are not supported as such. Hence, only a single fader or a single icon can be moved one after another.

– We are currently working on a solution for this and work around the barriers of Mac OS X –

Licensing Error on Amazon Tablet

What is KLANG’s software update release and product support philosophy?

faq icon to expand accordian

KLANG products are designed to be used for long periods of time and our philosophy will always be to try our best to offer support for as long as it is needed; however, this might become limited for various reasons, for example where we are depending on third party component suppliers, soft- and hardware developers etc. Our legacy products KLANG:fabrik (introduced in 2014), KLANG:vier and KLANG:quelle 19” are still receiving updates today, following this philosophy.

KLANG does not rely on rigidly fixed software update cycles (e.g. once or twice a year). Instead we aim to constantly maintain and improve the user experience, especially by releasing KLANG:app improvements to react to changes in smartphone or computer operating system updates as soon as possible.

Find the latest software updates here.

How many :apps can be connected to KLANG immersive processors?

faq icon to expand accordian

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?

faq icon to expand accordian

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, show files or mixes?

faq icon to expand accordian

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.

More info on Preset…

How can I listen or CUE into mixes?

faq icon to expand accordian

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?

faq icon to expand accordian

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.

 

What is a mix or an output? Is it mono or stereo?

faq icon to expand accordian

A mix (or :output as labelled on the back of e.g. KLANG:fabrik) always refers stereo pair of output channels. In order for the 3D processing to work the connection between our immersive KLANG in-ear mixing processor and the in-ears / headphones has to be stereo as well.

Which DiGiCo consoles offer the KLANG console integration

faq icon to expand accordian

The KLANG console integration is available on the following DiGiCo consoles

  • SD series
  • Quantum series

Do I need a control computer for the DiGiCo console link?

faq icon to expand accordian

Yes. The KLANG DiGiCo Console Link requires a computer running KLANG:app for setup and for operation.

Is there a way to decrease :kontrollers Display brightness or turn them off?

faq icon to expand accordian

Yes, you can activate Dark mode/:kontroller blackout which turns all LEDs and Displays (except for the last one)off. This is particular useful for theatres when the stage should be as dark as possible. With a push on any rotary button, the dark mode can be exited. [KKA-120]

In order to revert all :kontroller back to normal operation, use “Switch lights back on”. Follow this link for more details.

Do I need special headphones or in-ears to experience 3D sound?

faq icon to expand accordian

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.

Is it Personal Monitoring System or is it a tool for Monitor Engineers?

faq icon to expand accordian

Both.

The KLANG system is designed to be very easy to use especially if you don’t have years of experience in mixing monitors. The 3D in-ear mixing functionality enables musicians to get a very transparent and natural in-ear / headphone mix and a very short time.

At the same time, our products and especially KLANG:app offers all features experienced sound engineers or monitor engineers expect when working with a mixing tool for the live or studio market. Especially features like CUE mixing for musicians is a feature you want to use at mixing monitors constantly.

Why are all other groups turned down if I increase the volume of one group?

faq icon to expand accordian

KLANG:app and KLANG:kontroller offer customizable DCA groups for an improved mixing workflow e.g. during a show. By default, the volume of all other groups is decreased when the volume of one group is increased. This helps to keep the sound pressure level approximately the same and prevent the mix to get louder.

However, if you want to deactivate relative DCA group mixing go to KLANG:app > CONFIG (requires Admin mode to change this setting) > INFO > SET > Disable KLANG:app Relative Group Mixing

In order to change the behavior for KLANG:kontroller login with KLANG:app to your KLANG:kontroller (requires Admin mode to change this setting) > INFO > SET > Disable Relative Group Mixing.

How many channels and groups can be adjusted on :kontroller

faq icon to expand accordian

:kontroller always supports all groups of a mix. The maximum number of groups per KLANG mix is 16. By pushing GROUPS on :kontroller the first 8 groups are shown and by pushing GROUPS for a second time the last 8 groups are shown.

:kontroller supports 3 banks of 8 channels each, so the first 8 channels of a KLANG mix are available. It is important to sort the most important channels that should be controlled to the first 24 in the KLANG mix. However, the groups can always control the channels 25+. It is also possible to hide channel from the kontroller, without the need to resort channels. Hidden channels are still audible in the mix but cannot be individually tweak. However, if the group is changed in level these hidden channels will follow. https://www.klang.com/manuals/app-faders/#reorder-groups

What do the red or green icons above CONFIG stand for?

faq icon to expand accordian

How do I exchange presets between different processors?

faq icon to expand accordian

Presets are interchangeable between all KLANG immersive processors.

If the presets contains less input channels or less mixes these settings will be added from the default file. In case the preset has more mixes or more input channels than the processor offers the first mixes and first channels will be loaded until the maximum is reached.

More info on Preset…

How can I update the Audinate Dante firmware?

faq icon to expand accordian

You will find a step by step guide in our blog here…

Can I remote control the system via MIDI or OSC?

faq icon to expand accordian

Yes, that is possible.

KLANG:app, all KLANG processors and :kontroller exclusively communicate with each other via OpenSoundControl (OSC) messages. Find all details about the OSC messages in the OSC Reference Guide.

KLANG:app can further be controlled via MIDI / MCU.

There are also flexible third party converters from OSC to OSC or MIDI to OSC available, such as OSCulator. In this way, mixing console commands like snapshot recall or fader comnands can be converted. Additionally, tools like touchOSC can be used to design specific graphic interfaces if required.

I only have two ears, how can sound be 3D?

faq icon to expand accordian

Close your eyes and listen to your ears only. You will realise that you can immediately tell from where a sound is coming from. The sound travels from the source to our ears and until it finally hits our ear drums several things happen. The first effect is most obvious. The speed of sound is limited and e.g. sound coming from your left side will arrive at your left ear earlier than on your right ear. Secondly, the sound on your right ear will be attenuated due to the head shadowing effect. Furthermore, there are more sound paths that hit your torso first and are then delayed and reflected to your ears. Additionally, all these effects are strongly frequency dependent. Your ears are used to these kind of “artifacts” and decode them as spatial information.

KLANG’s 3D in-ear mixing technology imitates exactly what would happen to e.g. instrument signals around you before it hits your ear drums. A specially processed signal arrives at your in-ear or headphones drivers and contains all spatial cues your ears need to get a full 3D impression to let you immerse into a realistic and transparent sound field.

Why is the KLANG sound so much more transparent?

faq icon to expand accordian

Our hearing always relies on spatial cues and is trained to listen to different directions. Once we concentrate to listen to sound coming from a specific location (hitting our ears from a certain angle) the other sounds from other directions are blended out immediately. With KLANG:fabrik and KLANG:vier this spatial cues are delivered through your in-ears and headphones and your ears can work in the same way they are used to do. This feels very natural and is not tiring for your ears. That is the reason why many musicians still feel relaxed when playing live or in the studio through KLANG’s 3D mixing.

Without KLANG? If your ears don’t find these spatial cues in your sound mix, you have to concentrate on specific timbres or sounds of instruments. What happens then, you have to think e.g. how a violin sounds like and then find the violin like sound character in a one-dimensional sound mix. This is a very challenging task for your ears and your brain. No matter how experienced you are with this, 3D in-ear mixing relieves your ears.

Can I get 3D sound without head tracking?

faq icon to expand accordian

Yes. The 3D processing already delivers all spatial cues your brain and ears need to distinguish directions where the sound is coming from. Without motion tracking, the mix will be 3D (left, right, in front, behind, above or below you – all sources externalized) but when you turn your head, your mix will stay the same.

Do I need an iPad, Tablet or Smartphone?

faq icon to expand accordian

It depends. If you want to use the KLANG processor a personal monitoring system all musician should have access to their mixes.

This can either be done with KLANG:app on smartphone or tablets or with KLANG:kontroller. This works of course at the same time, it’s completely your choice.

Network

Why do KLANG show files and log files have a time offset?

faq icon to expand accordian

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?

faq icon to expand accordian

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.

Why do I loose connection to the KLANG processor with a 10G network adaptor?

faq icon to expand accordian

Newer Mac computers might ship with a fast 10G network adaptor. This adaptor sometimes runs into communication issues if the connected device (e.g. a network switch) does not support 10G. In that case a significated percentage (e.g. up to 50%) of the network traffic might be dropped, but it is hard to troubleshoot as it still works from time to time. This issue has not been addressed properly by the manufactured of these computers, yet.

Solution: Use a USB Gigabit network interface.

What kind of network switches work with Dante?

faq icon to expand accordian

Generally, managed switches with deactivated EEE are preferred for Dante networks.

:fabrik

How can KLANG:fabrik handle up to 16 mixes if it only has 8 stereo analog outputs?

faq icon to expand accordian

Depending on the IO configuration KLANG:fabrik can create up to 16 3D in-ear mixes. Each mixes consists of a stereo output pair. KLANG:fabrik flexible routing scheme allows to route mixes from the 3D in-ear mixing processor to any digital output interface and to the 8 stereo analog XLR outputs.

8 mixes can be routed to the 8 stereo XLR outputs. All available mixes – including all mixes that are routed to the XLR outputs – can be routed to any digital output interface. E.g. you can route the other mixes which are not already routed to the analog outputs via Dante to KLANG:quelle.

Why does KLANG:fabrik have two power supplies?

faq icon to expand accordian

One power supply is sufficient to power KLANG:fabrik. As common practice for professional touring audio gear, KLANG:fabrik offers a second power supply for redundancy. Connect it to a second, redundant power line if possible for extra safety if the first power line has an issue.

It can also be used to swap the power lines without any interruption of the audio stream. Connect the second power supply to a another power line. Check that both power supplies are active in the info screen e.g. via KLANG:app. Then disconnect the first power supply.

How many mixes, users and input channels can be handled?

faq icon to expand accordian

Please find information on the IO configuration for KLANG:fabrik here.

:vier

How can there be 5 mixes when the unit has only 4 stereo outputs?

faq icon to expand accordian

KLANG:vier can create 5 individual stereo mixes. A mix always consists of a stereo output pair. KLANG:vier offers 4 stereo headphone outputs and line level outputs. Mix #1, #2, #3, #4 are permanently routed to the 4 stereo analog outputs.

All 5 mixes are available via Dante. Hence, #5 can only be accessed via Dante and e.g. routed to a KLANG:quelle headphone amp or to a Dante breakout box or Dante enabled digital mixing console.

How many input channels and users can KLANG:vier handle?

faq icon to expand accordian

KLANG:vier can create 5 individual 3D mixes. A mix always consists of a stereo output pair.

24 input channels can be processed including EQs in 44.1kHz and 48kHz.

Warning – Power Supply Voltage – Service Required. What shall I do?

faq icon to expand accordian

 

In case KLANG:app shows a warning that the power supply of KLANG:vier or KLANG:fabrik needs to be checked. Please contact customer support and include a screenshot of the info screen. Email to support@klang.com

In case the voltage is below 4.7V the unit requires service immediately.

For KLANG:fabrik, we recommend to use both power supplies for stability reasons.

 

 

Can I route incoming ADAT signals to Dante?

faq icon to expand accordian

Yes, that is possible.

Can I use a different word clock source for the Dante network?

faq icon to expand accordian

Yes. Dante has the great advantage that it takes care of audio clocking almost automatically. If you use e.g. KLANG:vier with an ADAT input or KLANG:fabrik with ADAT or MADI or external Wordclock, or KLANG:vokal with MADI and you want to integrate the KLANG devices to a Dante network the clock has to be configured manually.

Set the KLANG devices to the clock source of your choice. In Dante Controller tweak the clock settings of this KLANG device in the “Clock Status” tab. Enable the “sync to external” and “preferred master/leader” for this unit. Now, the internal clock of the KLANG device will feed the entire Dante network and you can route audio from your KLANG processor e.g. to a :quelle or :kontroller.

Make sure the KLANG processors are not set back to Dante as the clock master in before unchecking the “sync to external” setting again. Otherwise, you will end up with the clock loop.

 

What is Dante?

faq icon to expand accordian

Dante is a proprietary audio over IP (AoIP) network protocol developed by the company Audinate. It is extremely versatile, robust due to redundancy features and still easy to use. Instead of analog multicores and several digital interface cables with Dante hundreds of channels of audio with high fidelity sound (24 or 32 bit, 44.1–192kHz) can be transmitted over hundreds of meters with only one network cable and maybe a second one for seamless redundancy.
