Australia - King’s Church has teamed up with Captivate AV to enhance its worship experience with KLANG’s immersive in-ear mixing system coupled with DiGiCo S-Series consoles. Boasting several key locations across Australia’s Gold Coast, King’s Church encompasses a growing community of connected worshippers that regularly assemble for a variety of services and events.
Endeavouring to offer its followers a technologically progressive experience, both in-person and online, King’s Church produces its own podcast and web-stream services, while delivering potent live worship sessions through song and the spoken word.
Recognising seamless audio production as a core component in delivering the impact it wants, the church’s team has enlisted industry expert, Captivate AV, to help optimise its AV capabilities. Chris Lang, Captivate AV’s managing director, spearheaded the leap to KLANG IEM technology in a move that has been extraordinarily well-received by King’s Church’s worship leaders, students and global worship director, Ashleigh Rogers.
“Our church incorporates schools, meaning we have very mixed, multipurpose use spaces. From services to musicals, the sound system is used a lot – almost every day of the week for different things,” says Ashleigh, as he reflects on the upgrade. “Now, thanks to our DiGiCo and KLANG setup, we experience significantly better time efficiency and the in-ears have given musicians and singers the confidence to hear exactly what they need – they can simply adjust everything themselves. Having KLANG has massively improved our audio experience and worship quality, I don’t even think its comparable to before.”
Effortlessly augmenting the existing worship setups, KLANG offers each performer a personal 3D soundstage, allowing for natural and intuitive monitor mixes with pristine sonic quality. The system also takes advantage of the interrelated KLANG and DiGiCo ecosystems, with DiGiCo’s DMI-KLANG expansion card bringing a generous host of 3D IEM control capabilities to their Quantum and S-Series consoles.
Lang continues: “We currently have three campuses across the Gold Coast region with DiGiCo S-Series consoles. Before KLANG, one campus was using foldback wedges for frontline and an older style personal monitoring system for backline. The other campuses were doing IEM mixes straight from the console. Once DMI-KLANG was released, we began installing them across the campuses along with additional wireless stereo IEM kits.”
