Klang:fabrik adds Madi
Klang’s 3D personal monitor mixing system, Klang:fabrik, has gained Madi functionality with the release of a Madi BNC interface. Intended to allow the solution to appeal to a wider audience of users, the Madi interface joins existing Dante and ADAT connectivity. Its switchable second Madi BNC input/output port, together with the unit’s I/O routing matrix, reportedly offers various format conversions between ADAT, Dante and Madi in addition to the in-ear mixing functionality.
Firmware KOS 2.2 and the control application, Klang:app 2.2, have been released to support the expansion. In addition to Madi support, the update also introduces new features including OSC integration and support for 96kHz operation. According to Klang, the new firmware also brings several enhancements in terms of usability and flexibility that cater both to the professional monitoring engineer that requires complete control over all mixes, as well as musicians and performers to tailor their own bespoke mixes.
Klang:app is available for iOS, Android, Mac and Windows is available free download at the manufacturer’s website.
