Blog Applications: Tour Sound
"The whole 3D aspect of KLANG has brought a new level of clarity onstage, while simultaneously helping to lower the overall IEM levels. It’s not an exaggeration to say that DMI-KLANG has changed everything for the better."
Lionel Richie - Lorin White – Monitor Engineer for Lionel Richie
"It’s been a journey to get him on in-ears over the past few years; he’s indicated that they don’t always feel natural, and he’s been prone to popping one or both of them out. But when we added the KLANG system in rehearsals, as soon as we threw up the ambience mics in his ears, we found that he’d leave his IEMs in all day, which was a great sign. It meant that everything just felt ‘real’ and he was enjoying himself. That was achieved with KLANG."
Burna Boy - Duriel Mensah – Monitor Engineer for Burna Boy
"It wasn’t an option for me to go back to traditional stereo mixes. Everyone is really pleased with the KLANG system. It has provided Soprano and his musicians a much-needed sense of space in the monitor mix, resulting in a more natural soundscape. Why on earth would we ever change that?"
Soprano - Pascal Rossi – Monitor Engineer for Soprano
"Ultimately, there is no reason not to use KLANG as it offers nothing but benefits. Once you begin utilising the 3D mixing capabilities and experience the immersive space it creates within your mix, there’s no turning back. The expansion it provides, particularly when dealing with mixes containing numerous clicks, sequencers, and a vast array of keyboards, is truly immense. It’s truly a life changer!"
David Bisbal - Ian Alvarez – Monitor Engineer for David Bisbal
"To me, KLANG is like installing a secret door where you normally ‘hit a wall’ trying to finesse an IEM mix to be the most useful, comfortable, and most importantly, inspiring and musical. Right where you think you can’t do much better with everything going on in a mix, the KLANG door opens"
Luke Combs - Michael Zuehsow – Monitor Engineer for Luke Combs
"KLANG has made my life so much easier, and it’s been a game-changer for keeping artists happy on stage. After all, if they’re happy, I’m happy!"
Sarah Brightman - Lewe Redlin – Monitor Engineer for Sarah Brightman
"The KLANG system noticeably improves sound quality, allowing for greater precision and control that leads to more dynamic performances. As someone who has experienced the advantages first-hand, I strongly encourage everyone to give it a try, as the benefits are evident right from the first song."
Santiano - Ravi Rai – Monitor Engineer for Santiano
"KLANG is definitely the logical evolution of in-ear monitoring. It cleans up the sound so wonderfully, making it easier to place challenging signals like a Leslie or the audience mics in the mix. It offers full control via the Quantum 338, including automation."
PUR - Dirk Happel – ME for PUR
"With this density of material, it seemed that for the band’s in-ear monitoring KLANG would be the only viable option. It’s the only system that allows you to easily spread the sources around the sound field, giving the space in the mix that the performers need."
Hans Zimmer - Colin Pink – FOH for Hans Zimmer
"The musicians definitely felt more comfortable on such a long show, and it has reduced ear fatigue during the tour."
