Gulf Breeze, FL (July 30, 2018)—Liberty Church’s 200-seat Gulf Breeze campus recently integrated a KLANG:fabrik 3D IEM mixing system for its musicians and singers.
With the KLANG:fabrik system configured for 32 inputs by six stereo outputs, the musicians and singers at Liberty Church Gulf Breeze’s three services each Sunday hear themselves spatially in relation to the other performers on stage.
The system is controlled by Kelly Ward, who is the audio and media director at Liberty Church’s Gulf Breeze campus as well as the commissioning specialist at All Pro Integrated Systems, the Pensacola-based AVL systems integrator that sold and installed the KLANG:fabrik unit there.

Ward, who works with Gulf Breeze Worship Leader Jamie Anderson, manages the system from a laptop at the back of the church, where the KLANG:fabrik unit is connected to an Allen & Heath GLD-80 FOH console and connects to the 36x10-foot stage via Dante over a Cat 6 cable.

Anderson, who also plays guitar and sings, adjusts the mixes from the stage using the KLANG:app from an Apple iPad as he and the rest of the worship band listen through their discrete KLANG output mixes, allowing for a completely “silent stage” for monitors (including DI connections for the instruments into the PA system).
“We’ve found that managing the monitor mixes this way works best for us, because we can respond to the vocalists’ balance requests quickly and precisely through the apps, and let them concentrate on the music during rehearsals and during services,” Ward said. “The overall outcome is excellent, because the singers and band members have exactly the mixes they need to hear while they can concentrate on the performance instead of the technology, and the control of the sound on the stage is complete, which makes for a better experience overall during services.”
