Connection from Scratch

Congratulations on your very own KLANG:fabrik and welcome to the world of 3D in-ear monitoring.

To implement KLANG:fabrik into your system as fast as possible follow the few steps below!

Step 1: Plug in KLANG:fabrik

Connect a power chord to your system. KLANG:fabrik has two redundant power supplies. That means KLANG:fabrik will work fine with only one power chord connected but the second one grants you extra safety.
Also connect a headphone amplifier or your wireless In-Ear transmitter to the analog outputs OUTPUT:1.

Step 2: Control Network

You need to open a network to connect your laptop or tablet/smartphone to KLANG:fabrik. We recommend using a road-proof router with two independent WiFi networks with 2.4 & 5 GHz. Connect your router to KLANG:fabrik’s control port with an ethernet cable.

Step 3: Download KLANG:app

Step 4: Connect your Audio Source

KLANG:fabrik supports Dante/AES67, MADI (optional configuration) and optical inputs compatible to ADAT. Connect your equipment depending on your setup and use KLANG:app’s internal routing screen:

If you don’t have Dante enabled products at hand, you can also send up to 64 channels of  audio via Dante Virtual Soundcard from your Mac/PC.

Step 5: Audio Routing

Visit the Dante Routing Blog for detailed routing information.

When using MADI or ADAT connect the cables.

Use KLANG:app’s routing screen to specify your audio input to the 3D in-ear mixing system and to set the audio clock accordingly.

Step 6: Enjoy 3D mixes

Adjust the volume on OUPUT:1 and enjoy your 3D headphone mix.

Keep in mind that you can also convert between different audio protocols while using KLANG:fabrik’s 3D headphone mixes.
