KLANG konducts sound at Brentwood Church


Brentwood Baptist Church has updated its audio infrastructure with a KLANG:konductor immersive in-ear processor. Located in Tennessee, the church underwent a complete refresh of its audio, video and lighting systems, working with AVL systems integrator Diversified.

Brentwood Baptist technical services director Darby Gilmore commented on the update: “We were not only due for a technical refresh but an aesthetic one, too. We wanted to modernise and the KLANG:konductor was part of that.”

Tim Corder, Diversified’s vice president of faith and performance, brought the KLANG:konductor to the church’s attention, seeing it as a versatile solution able to toggle from full orchestra and choir one week to a high-energy, rock-style band the next. “Brentwood Baptist has a very diverse, multi-generational worship style. It can be a challenge to adapt a sound system for that kind of diversity. So, they needed a platform that could manage high channel and stereo-output counts, would have an easy-to-use interface and also sound great. KLANG is the only one that checks all those boxes,” he explained.

Corder specified that the Apple iPad employed as the user interface with the KLANG:konductor be hardwired for PoE, to assure uninterrupted power and broadband connectivity for every use. “It’s been in use now for nearly a year and it’s been flawless,” he said.

The KLANG:konductor is integrated with Lawo mc236 MkII consoles at front of house and monitors. “The console has several 64x64-input MADI interfaces and we’re using two of them for a 128x128 input matrix,” commented Gilmore, adding that the vocal team preferred having the personal touch of a monitor engineer, so they decided to go with a console and a KLANG:conductor. He also noted that the KLANG:konductor’s interface with the console was straightforward and effective.

“We can use the KLANG alone for the backline on smaller events and use both for full services. That way, everyone has the benefit of the KLANG’s audio quality, and it gives us tremendous flexibility in terms of how we allocate our monitor resources,” he said.

The KLANG:konductor is controlled using a VNC remote-desktop connection to a computer running KLANG:app, giving the team control access from the console through that interface. “We also have access to KLANG:app via a number of KVM remote stations, including FOH, so we have a high degree of submixing control and a ton of routing options. Diversified had suggested that and it’s been working flawlessly. Everybody’s happy,” remarked Gilmore.
