KLANG:technologies has announced a new MADI BNC interface for KLANG:fabrik, designed to make the company’s in-ear mixing tool for studio, musical and live productions available to a wider range of users.
The switchable second MADI BNC input/output port, together with KLANG:fabrik's flexible I/O routing matrix, offers various format conversions between ADAT, Dante and MADI in addition to the in-ear mixing functionality.
Firmware KOS 2.2 and control application KLANG:app 2.2 are being released to fully support the expansion. In addition to MADI support, the update brings new features including extensive OSC integration and full 96kHz support. KOS 2.2 introduces enhancements in usability and flexibility, not only for the application as a mixing tool for monitor engineers, but also for use as a personal monitoring system.
The recognised problem with stereo IEM is positioning all of the signals of a mix in the narrow space between the left and right ears. This is solved by placing the signals virtually around the entire head, including above and below. In addition to significantly improving natural sound and transparency, listening fatigue is dramatically reduced.
“We are excited to be launching the MADI interface, together with KOS 2.2 and KLANG:app 2.2,” said KLANG:technologies' founder and marketing director Dr. Pascal Dietrich. “As musicians, we understood the format and features our customers wanted and these latest developments provide those solutions. We’ve just had the opportunity to show the substantial advantages they offer at Tonmeistertagung in Cologne and I’m pleased to say they were enthusiastically received by existing users as well as musicians and engineers looking to change to the advantages of 3D IEM.”
Dietrich concluded: “With the new features in connectivity and usability, KLANG:fabrik has, without doubt, become the most advanced personal monitoring system ever. Sonic quality, ease of use, and flexibility set the bar higher for the whole industry.”
KLANG:app for iOS, Android, Mac and Windows is now available to download free here.
