Klang has announced the Klang:kontroller, a hardware controller that is compatible with all Klang immersive in-ear mixing processors, and the Klang:vokal processor.

Klang Klang:kontroller‘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 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,’ Dietrich adds. ‘The displays provide clear colour coding and channel names which makes handwritten and mostly outdated name tags, as well as dialling though all the channels to find the one you are looking for, obsolete.’

Relative DCA group mixing and full single channel control via eight push rotary encoders provides ready access to functions. ‘The ability to customise the groups is particularly useful for musicians,’ Dietrich says. ‘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 headphone amplifier delivers clear audio for in-ear monitors and high-impedance headphones, with both 3.5mm as well as 6.3mm (quarter-inch) stereo TRS connectors provided. Two XLR outputs can be connected to, for example, wireless in-ear transmitters. Installation friendly features like Power over Ethernet (PoE, remote set up 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.

Dedicated User Presets, along with USB import and export, ensure easy changeover for multiple musicians – each musician can save their own presets, which can then be imported into the Klang:kontroller, allowing the unit to be used by any number of musicians without the need for time consuming set up each time.

Binaural ambient microphones are built into the unit, and can be blended into the immersive in-ear mix, along with a local stereo aux input for, 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, the new 1U-high Klang:vokal immersive processor allows up to 12 musicians to pick up to 24 mono or stereo channels out of 64 Dante and Madi inputs. Based on a new ultra-low latency FPGA core, Klang:vokal offers 12 mixes of 24 mono or stereo inputs at 48kHz and 96kHz, including the company’s Root-Intensity EQ.
