KLANG Launches New Immersive Kontroller for Musicians




KLANG has announced the combined release of its new KLANG:kontroller, a hardware controller that is compatible with all KLANG immersive in-ear mixing processors, and its new processor, KLANG:vokal, bringing a whole new level of personal monitoring to musicians.

“This is the first hardware product designed specifically for the musicians,” says KLANG founder and CMO, Pascal Dietrich. “While many of our users love the KLANG:app, we had received many requests for a standalone hardware controller that offers the same mixing functionality, combined with a powerful, studio-grade Dante headphone amp.”

KLANG:kontroller delivers fast tactile user control of channels, groups and immersive mixing via an intuitive interface. “KLANG:kontroller is really simple to use, even for absolutely non-technical musicians,” adds Dietrich. “The displays provide clear color coding and channel names which makes handwritten and mostly outdated name tags, as well as dialing though all the channels to find the one you are looking for, obsolete.”

“The ability to customize the groups is particularly useful for musicians,” Dietrich continues. “With eight rotaries, musicians can quickly balance their in-ear mix. This is fast, safe for the ears and it massively speeds up the mixing workflow during a gig without requiring any profound mixing know-how.”

The studio grade headphone amplifier delivers crystal clear audio for in-ear monitors and high impedance headphones, with both 3.5mm (1/8”) as well as 6.3mm (1/4”) stereo TRS connectors. Two XLR outputs can be connected to, for example, wireless in-ear transmitters. Installation friendly features like Power over Ethernet, remote setup via the KLANG:app and automatic Dante routing are set to streamline any stage or orchestra pit. KLANG:kontroller gives musicians full control of all relevant functions, while the engineer can still overview and control all mixes via the KLANG:app or DiGiCo SD or Q series consoles.

To perfect the immersive experience, binaural ambient microphones are built into the unit. These can be blended into the immersive in-ear mix, along with a local stereo aux input, for example, a click track or playback from a phone. The mix can be sent back to the Dante network or, alternatively, the ambient microphones or aux input can be shared with other musicians.

While KLANG:kontroller is designed to integrate with all existing devices, KLANG is also releasing a new immersive mixing processor. This compact 1 RU processor, KLANG:vokal, has a dedicated feature set that allows up to 12 musicians to pick up to 24 mono or stereo channels out of 64 Dante and MADI inputs. For example, mixes can be sent out via MADI to a console or via Dante to KLANG:kontroller. Based on KLANG’s powerful, new generation, ultra-low latency FPGA core, KLANG:vokal offers 12 mixes of 24 mono or stereo inputs at 48kHz and 96kHz, including the company’s revolutionary Root-Intensity EQs. This makes KLANG:vokal and KLANG:kontroller the perfect match for any House of Worship or theatre application.
