KLANG system breathes new life into Austin Church


New Life United Pentecostal Church of Austin has upgraded to a KLANG:konductor system to facilitate its growing I/O count. Also known as New Life Austin, the church became one of the first houses of worship in the country to implement a pair of KLANG:fabrik immersive in-ear monitor mixing processors in 2017.

The tech-forward church originally installed the KLANG:fabrik systems to improve the performance experience for the 8–10 musicians and vocalists on its stage every Sunday; however, over the years the number of performers has grown, putting a strain on the system’s capacity. “We have nine or 10 vocalists during services now, along with bass, drums, a couple of guitars, keys, percussion, sax and so on,” said TJ Feronti, New Life Austin’s tech director and FOH engineer, who noted that his channel count now exceeds 70.

Alongside the KLANG:konductor system, New Life Austin has also installed a DiGiCo Quantum 225 to replace its previous DiGiCo SD9 console, purchased through Heart of Texas Music. “We had been maxed out on the DiGiCo SD9 console we had been using for front of house and to route the monitors,” explained Feronti. “Now, we have up to 128 channels and 16 separate mixes available, going over MADI through the Quantum 225. It’s all so much easier to manage.” 

Feronti noted that the church’s musicians and singers have taken to the KLANG’s immersive mode, with most of them choosing to use it. “They’ve been very impressed, whether they’re new to the professional aspect of this or have been doing it since they were using wedge floor monitors or just stereo IEMs,” he said. “They love being able to move things around spatially in their mixes on their iPads and have them reflect what they’re experiencing onstage.” 

According to Feronti, the :konductor has been easy to use and has made his job easier as he is able to listen in and keep an ear on any of the stage mixes from his own iPad. “Whenever we have other worship teams visiting, our house team can help them adjust to it very quickly,” he concluded. “It’s just made everything a whole lot easier here.”
