Quick Start Guide for KLANG:vektor
What you need to start
- KLANG:vektor with tracker cable (in-ear or headphone)
- KLANG:fabrik or KLANG:vier 3D In-Ear Mixing System
- KLANG:app on remote device with WiFi access
- WLAN Router connected to KLANG:fabrik / KLANG:vier (2.4 or 5GHz)
Connection from Scratch
Congratulations on your very own KLANG:vektor and welcome to the world of tracked 3D in-ear monitoring!
To implement KLANG:vektor into your system as quickly and smoothly as possible please follow the few steps below thoroughly:
Step 1: Check your WLAN setup
You can skip this step if you are familiar with your KLANG 3D in-ear mixing products and use them with WLAN already.
Step 2: Start KLANG:vektor
- First Plug in sensor cable to KLANG:vektor.
- [only for 2-pin Sensor] Connect the audio jack to a headphone output and the 2-pin plugs to your in-ears.
- Open the lock mechanism at the bottom of KLANG:vektor an pull down the battery flap.
- Put in 2 x AA batteries (1.5V) and close the battery flap again.
- KLANG:vektor will boot immediately
If KLANG:vektor is not booting directly check polarity or use fresh batteries.
KLANG:vektor can also be powered by USB with a micro USB cable.
Step 3: Configuration Mode
Enter the CONFIG MODE using the menu. Hold the top button for two seconds, step down using the top button and select “Network” using the side button. Navigate to and select “Enable AP”.
A brand new KLANG:vektor will automatically enter CONFIG MODE.
Open the WLAN settings on your device running KLANG:app and choose the network named similar to KV-SERIAL (SSID).
Start KLANG:app on your device. Make sure to use “Admin”-Mode and navigate to Config->Connect. Your KLANG:vektor will be found as a KLANG:device.
You may need to click the refresh button, if KLANG:vektor is not found.
This time you only one device connected – the KLANG:vektor.
Select your KLANG:vektor and choose your WLAN SSID on the right side. Select “Custom” if you use hidden SSIDs. Now type in the login information of your WLAN router connected to your KLANG:fabrik or KLANG:vier.
KLANG:vektor will now try to connect to the WLAN. If your login information is wrong or the WLAN is not reachable, it will stay in CONFIG MODE. If successful it will leave CONFIG MODE.
Step 4: Assign to User Mix
If your device running KLANG:app does not return to the router’s WLAN connected to KLANG:fabrik or KLANG:vier automaticly, please make sure you manually choose the right WLAN.
Choose the musician that uses the KLANG:vektor within Config->Connect-Screen and assign the KLANG:vektor with the drop-down menu to the mix.
Take a look on Stage View, if i3D is choosen and some instruments are placed on the outer orbit.
If you are using multiple KLANG:vektors ensure that you assign the correct KLANG:vektor to the musician wearing the assigned beltpack. You can easily identify the vektors by the serial numbers. The selected KLANG:vektor will also flash it’s display if you double-click on the KLANG:vektor within Config->Connect-view.
You can also lock the outer orbit that follows the head movements, by clicking the little orbit icon in the bottom left corner to place the signals as you like.
Step 5: Defining the stage front / Reference
Until now it is not determined how the KLANG:vektor motion sensor is connected to the user’s head.
If KLANG:vektor is showing CONNECT SENSOR you forgot to connect. Please connect now and proceed.
- Mount the sensor to your headphones or in-ears
- KLANG:vektor display shows: ‘MOVE THE SENSOR!’ – Move the sensor end of the cable around (figure of eight movement). Otherwise sensor is not calibrated.
- Look to the audience our to your preferred viewing direction while playing. This will become the reference direction and KLANG:app will identify this as front direction.
- Now look straight ahead and PRESS & HOLD the REFERENCE button (left side).
- Move your chin to your chest and release REFERENCE button when your chin touches your chest.
That’s it! You brought your 3D mixing expierience to the next level.
If KLANG:vektor is showing SENSOR N/C you forgot to connect. Please connect or check cable.
KLANG:vektor display shows: ‘MOVE THE SENSOR!’ – Move the sensor end of the cable around (figure of eight movement). This is necessary after each power on.
If KLANG:vektor does not start even with new batteries, hold down top button during power up for 12 seconds. This will trigger a factory reset. A failsafe firmware update can be triggered by holding the top button for 5 seconds during power up.
Update KLANG:vektor firmware
Download the firmware file from www.klang.com to your computer. Select “Update” within KLANG:vektor menu. Connect your computer to the KLANG:vektor AccessPoint. Start your browser and enter 192.168.198.1. Follow the instructions on this web page.
Warnings & Precautions
- To reduce the danger of electrical shock, DO NOT remove covers. There are no user serviceable parts inside KLANG products. Please refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
- ONLY use AA-Batteries with maximum 1.5 Volt. Alkaline, NimH and NiCd are recommended. Avoid zinc-carbon batteries and do not use Li-Ion/Li-Polymer batteries.
- DO NOT expose this device to rain, water or other types of liquid or moisture (incl. splashing or dripping, dew or fog). Never place objects filled with liquids, such as beer or water bottles or glasses on or near the device.
- Operating Temperature: 0 °C to 50 °C (32 °F to 122 °F). Avoid exposing this device to sources of heat.
- Using any audio system at high volume levels can cause permanent damage to your hearing. Set your system volume as low as possible. Avoid prolonged exposure to excessive sound pressure levels.
- Remove in-ears immediatly if you feel uncomfortable, espacially if you use KLANG:vektor and feel dizzy.
All currently available KLANG:vektors are pre-production units (prototypes) still considered in the stage of manufacture and are thus transferred for testing and validating purposes only. Conformity and compliance have not yet been officially tested.
RoHS Compliant and Pb-Free.
