Mosaic Church adds second KLANG:fabrik to increase channel count


Following the acquisition of its first KLANG:fabrik immersive in-ear mixing solution in December 2017, Mosaic Church in Winter Garden, Florida, has added a second unit, expanding what the church’s vocalists and musicians can accomplish and lightening the load of the FOH engineer, who previously ran some of the monitor mixes from the house console. Altamonte Springs-based integrator AVnew was responsible for both installations.

“We had been running two dozen channels and eight wireless mixes off of the first KLANG:fabrik unit, with another four musicians onstage hard-wired off an aux buss on the console,” said Jeff Amato, manager of the church’s production and technology team. “We only do Sunday gatherings and don’t do rehearsals during the week – just on Sunday mornings – so we wanted to expand the number of user-controlled mixes onstage and give everyone the ability to quickly and reliably fine-tune their own mixes. The KLANG:fabrik has been amazing for that, and now, with two units cascaded, we’re up to 29 channels with EQ filtering across 12 mixes, with each KLANG unit driving six of those mixes.”

Gil Parente, CEO of AVnew, says the KLANG:fabrik is a good fit for churches like Mosaic, which has a high-energy, worship-music style. “They wanted a better stage experience for their musicians, giving them the ability to create even more customised monitoring environments for each of them and doing so with a very user-friendly interface,” he explained. “Those two things, combined with the quality of the immersive sound the KLANG:fabrik provides, made it the perfect choice.”

The KLANG:fabriks are connected to the church’s existing SSL L200 FOH console via Dante, which is native to the KLANG units. “That kind of digital integration with the console is also great from both an installation and operational point of view,” added Parente.

“I can tap into someone on the stage’s mix and it sends me just their IEM mix output, so I can listen in and help them make adjustments without me needing to go onstage and without interrupting the rest of a rehearsal,” Amato continued. “Not everyone onstage has the musical or engineering experience to dial in a well-balanced mix, and Engineer mode lets me work with them one-on-one to do that if they need support.”

In addition, an EQ filter allows users to dial in and preset tonality on each channel. “Using the EQ filters helps a lot in cleaning up the mixes,” he furthered. “For instance, we can attenuate the unnecessary low frequencies on a vocalist’s microphone, which can help clean up the overall mixes. And the KLANG units also take a lot of the workload off of the FOH engineer. Every user can have a starting baseline saved as a preset, which eliminates a lot of the work in getting a service or rehearsal started and lets the house engineer focus on the room. The KLANG:fabrik has really increased the efficiency of our workflow, but it’s also enhanced how we operate as a worship team.”
