KLANG: fabrik: 3D Audio Mixing Desk & Processor: KLANG: fabrik is the core of our monitoring solution. It combines the latest and finest HD audio algorithms with a multitude of flexible audio interfaces (i.e. Dante™, compatible to ADAT) in order to work with professional mixing desks and stage boxes of any kind. Up to 8 musicians receive their individual 3D mixes with one KLANG: fabrik. If your band is greater than 8, there is always the option to daisy-chain multiple KLANG: fabrik.
The 3D monitoring mixes are sent from KLANG: fabrik to radio transmitters or headphone amps via XLR, back to the ears of the musicians. Thanks to our high-performance processors, this can happen without any noticeable latency. Use our app on any device (iOS, Android, WindowsPhone, PC and Mac), or the faders of your mixing desk to control KLANG:fabrik from where you are.

KLANG 3D in-Ear Monitoring Questions and Answers
Yes. The 3D processing already delivers all spatial cues your brain and ears need to distinguish directions where the sound is coming from. Without KLANG:vektor motion tracking, the mix will be 3D (left, right, in front, behind, above or below you – all sources externalized) but when you turn your head, your mix will stay the same.
If you want sound sources to stay fixed with e.g. the stage or instruments you see on stage, KLANG:vektor enables you to look around in an acoustic virtual reality on stage.
No. KLANG incorporates binaural technology and processes the sound inside KLANG:fabrik and KLANG:vier to work immediately with your own pair of standard stereo headphones or in-ears. In fact, it is not important if your headphones are open or closed, electrostatic, dynamic or use balanced armature drivers as most in-ears do. You can use universal fit in-ears or custom molded in-ears. Just make sure that the polarity is correct and the left and right signals go to the correct ears.
Short answer: yes. KLANG:fabrik and KLANG:vier do not offer equalising or dynamics such as compressors or limiters. We rely on your digitial mixing console, either the front of house desk or a dedicated monitor console to send pre-processed instrument or microphone signals. The spatial processing and the binaural mixdown happens in our 3D in-ear mixing systems. However, it is possible to connect an analog to digital converter (DAC) directly to our system and use the height setting (tap orbit twice, elevation) as a smart EQ filter.
