Configure Dante Follow

A KLANG processor mix needs to be routed via Dante to :kontroller. This can either be done manually via Dante Controller or KLANG:kontroller’s Dante Follow feature can auto route when a mix is assigned.

Dante Follow is by default NOT enabled on :kontroller.
If Dante Follow is activated, the Control interface communicates internally with the Dante interface which will then subscribe to a Dante transmitter with the exact same device name as the KLANG processor’s unit name that :kontroller is currently connected to.

Everytime a different mix is chosen on kontroller it will subscribe to a Dante transmitter with this name and adapt the channels accordingly. In this case Dante Controller is not required.

1/3 | Enable Dante Follow

On :kontroller directly:

CONFIG (3sec) > AUDIO > Dante Follow > ON/OFF

via KLANG:app

Login to :kontroller > CONFIG > INFO > SET > Enable/Disable Dante AutoRouting / Dante Follow.

With KLANG:app 5.3 or higher, Dante Follow can be checked and activated from CONFIG > CONNECT directly:

2/3 | Change KLANG Processor Name

Login with KLANG:app to the same KLANG processor to which :kontroller should connect to.

Go to CONFIG > INFO > SET > Set Unit Name. We are using “customName” in this example.

To use Dante Follow on a cascade of KLANG processors, make sure to use the name followed by the number in braces as the unit name, e.g. customName(1) and the name followed by only the number as the Dante device name, e.g. customName1. See cascade guide for details…

3/3 | Change Processor Dante Name

In Dante Controller

KLANG processors with built-in Dante module, e.g. :fabrik, :vier, :vokal CANNOT communicate with their internal Dante modules and hence the Dante device name has to be set manually.
  1. In Dante Controller, connect to Dante module associated with the KLANG processor, i.e. the Dante devices that sends the immersive mixes to the Dante network.
  2. Double Click on this device to open Dante Controller – Device View
  3. Go to the Device Config tab
  4. Under “Rename Device” type in the exact same name as in the step above for the KLANG processor Unit Name. In this example we use “customName”
  5. Click Apply
Do not use special characters, as they will not be accepted properly. Make sure that both the KLANG Unit Name and the Dante Device Name are 100% identical for Dante Follow to work, with the exception mentioned above to not use braces for Dante names for a cascade of KLANG processors.
