SETUP ON STAGE
The signal path starts from the musician(s); in this diagram the singer and the
PA
drummer. The microphone signals from all the musicians/instruments are fed to
the mixing desk by means of analogue or digital multicore through the stage box,
which is normally positioned on the stage.

AT THE FOH MIXING DESK
The FOH technician adjusts the basic settings before the already pre-processed
signals are taken over by the KLANG:fabrik. This pre-processing usually

comprises the processing of the frequency band (equalizing), the limitation of
the dynamic range (compression) and possibly other effects. In addition, the
sometimes high number of single channels can be achieved by mixing the
channels together at the FOH mixing desk.

INTERFACES AND INTEGRATION OF THE KLANG:FABRIK
The KLANG:fabrik incorporates a DANTE™ interface and, as a standard feature,

is compatible with ADAT. If the FOH mixing desk is not equipped with a
correspondingly compatible interface, the operation can still be accomplished
via a bridge or a converter made by another manufacturer by converting

FROM THE KLANG:FABRIK INTO THE EAR OF THE MUSICIAN
Now the signals from the musicians are in the KLANG:fabrik, ready to be converted
TRANSMITTER
SPLITTER &

VOC
into 3D signals. Furthermore, this is where the perfect 3D in-ear sound of the band
or of the musicians themselves, even for each musician individually, is compiled by
the mixing desk monitor. This also includes the positioning of the sound sources
around the head.
For each musician (up to 8 per KLANG:fabrik) there are two XLR outputs, which
carry the signal for the left and the right ear respectively, for the transmission of
the individual 3D mix from the KLANG:fabrik into the ear of the musician. Via these
two XLR outputs the signal can go either into a stereo wireless link or into a
corresponding, cable-connected earphone amplifier and, from there, into its
HEADPHONE AMP
respective in-ears. If more than 8 musicians want to use 3D in-ear monitoring on
stage, it is possible to cascade several KLANG:fabrik devices.

INTEGRATION IN THE REHEARSAL ROOM

In addition, you can also operate the KLANG:fabrik in the rehearsal room without

a separate mixing desk. In this case, your KLANG:fabrik replaces the mixing
desk. Here, the signals can be received directly in the KLANG:fabrik, e.g. via a
microphone pre-amplifier and ADC (analogue-to-digital converter), thanks to the
VIA DANTE /
OPTICAL compatibility with ADAT, or via the DANTE™ interface.
The KLANG:app enables the mix to be adjusted for each individual musician. From
the KLANG:fabrik back into the ear of the musician, the path is as described above:
either via wireless link or headphone amplifier (see diagram 1).

KLANG ZERO LATENCY INPUTS.
WHY ZERO LATENCY?
VIA DANTE / OPTICAL
Grafik 4:
The latency of the KLANG:fabrik is so low that it is hardly perceivable by the
1 - 5 MS

human ear. From working together with well-known performing artists, we know
SPLITTER &
STAGEBOX
that, nonetheless, there is a need for the direct, analogue and thus latency-free
TO FOH
connection of the performer's own microphone or instrument signal (e.g. in the
case of wind instruments). Since we like to accommodate the wishes of our
customers, we have developed the so-called "KLANG Zero Latency Inputs“.

MIC PREAMP
In principle, the signal of a singer is sent to the stage box via a microphone preamplifier before the signals of all the musicians are bundled and sent to the
FOH mixing desk. However, by using a splitter, it is also possible to separate the
signals on the stage already. Then, the FOH mixing desk still receives a vocal
signal so that it can be processed for the audience.
HEADPHONE AMP/
TRANSMITTER
Now, however, the KLANG:fabrik additionally receives the signal from the vocal
microphone directly and without delay by means of AD/DA conversion. This
VOC
signal is received directly by the KLANG:fabrik via the analogue XLR inputs and
from here, it is sent latency-free to the analogue outputs of the individual
musicians. From the KLANG:fabrik, the signal then goes, as described above,
via wireless or headphone amplifiers into the in-ears of the musicians.

COMMUNICATION AND REMOTE CONTROL
Grafik 5:
This diagram shows a typical stage network with an integrated KLANG:fabrik.
WLAN-Router
In most cases, a WLAN router (2.4 GHz or 5 GHz) is used, which is connected
to the KLANG:fabrik by means of an Ethernet cable (Cat5e/Cat6). Otherwise,
the KLANG:fabrik can also be remotely controlled by connecting it via cable to
Cat5
a PC or laptop. With the KLANG:app, mobile terminal devices (smartphones,
KLANG:app
tablets, laptops) can be configured for the remote control of the KLANG:fabrik
via WLAN from any position on the entire stage. In addition, the network is
KLANG:fabrik

VOC
absolutely necessary for using the wireless KLANG:vectors.
ONE-STOP, ALL-ROUND SOLUTION
For uncomplicated and professional use, the configuration of an individualized
19 inch rack recommends itself. In addition to the KLANG:fabrik and a WLAN
router suitable for use on stage with 2.4 and 5 GHz, it may be advisable to
integrate further accessories, such as headphone amplifiers, wireless routers
KLANG:app
and rack sockets directly into the rack.
According to your wishes, these tailor-made solutions, customised to individual

cases, wireless routers, complete accessories and, of course, made to measure
in-ears can be ordered through a personal contact person at KLANG:technologies
or directly via the KLANG:store.
