KLANG:app – The METER Menu

Level Metering

It is important for sound engineers to have quick access to the meter information of all incoming channels and the mixes. This helps troubleshooting if for example a signal is not arriving at KLANG:fabrik or KLANG:vier, or if a user’s output signal is too low and causes problems with the wireless transmitters (hum or noise).

This KLANG:app menu is very simple and absolutely independent of the user you are currently logged in to.

Input Channel Meters

The top bar with 12 – 56 input channels (KLANG:fabrik) or 24 input channels (KLANG:vier) is labelled INPUT CHANNEL LEVELS (PRE-FADER). The number of input channels scales with the setting of your unit. Here, you will see the levels in dBFS with 3 dB spacing. These are the pre-fader input channels to the 3D in-ear processor in the KLANG hardware unit.

Color coding is a follows: Over  -3 dBFS: red, over -10 dBFS: orange, rest: green.

Please note that the order of appearence is linked to the physical/hardware channels and is not affected if you change the order of appearance in the Channel menu. Furthermore, deactivated channels will always be shown here, too.

Channels that are not routed to the DSP of KLANG:fabrik or KLANG:vier are not shown here. If you for example have ADAT signals containing audio coming to your KLANG unit, but only Dante channels are routed to the DSP, the ADAT signals will not turn up in the meter information.

The following screenshot has 24 input channels and 8 users, so it is taken while using a KLANG:fabrik.

Mix Output Meters

Output user levels are post faders and always coupled in two channels – left and right. In the following screenshot, you see a setup on KLANG:fabrik with 16 input channels and 12 users. User 9 has a low output signal which should be looked at.
