KLANG announced new KOS 5.5 Operating System

KLANG:technologies announced the launch of its newest operating system, KOS 5.5, which is now available for free download.

The new OS and its corresponding KLANG:app software simplify and reduce setup time for all of KLANG’s second-generation devices, including :konductor, :kontroller, and :vokal, as well as DiGiCo’s DMI-KLANG card.

KLANG’s latest OS serves as the backend of the new and improved full DiGiCo console integration, which will come to life with DiGiCo’s newest software release, V1742.

KOS 5.5 featured numerous other enhancements, which included,

  • DiGiCo Console Integration “Lite” puts both console and KLANG channel labels in sync.
  •  The new Dante Follow update simplified the separation of Dante and Control networks via VLANs on KLANG processors and:kontrollers while improving Dante network stability and latency headroom.
  • A DMI-KLANG mounted in an Orange Box can now configure and show the settings of the audio I/O DMI card intuitively and remotely via KLANG:app without the need for the Orange Box controller software.
  • New Root-intensity EQ Presets enable even quicker setup of a personal mixing system.
    KOS 5.5 also delivers a host of improved administrator features.

Additionally, for software updates, KLANG devices can format USB drives and copy their internal software version, to update other devices.

“There is an inverse rule when it comes to excellence in software design, and that is to create platforms that are increasingly sophisticated and complex while simultaneously making them easier to adopt and use,” commented KLANG co-founder Dr. Pascal Dietrich. “Our new KOS 5.5 perfectly rises to that challenge. Not only does our latest operating system deliver paramount ROI by bringing improvements in power and workflow to KLANG products for free, but it is now also faster and simpler than ever for users to set up and operate, opening up our immersive IEM mixing platform to an even wider audience. KLANG KOS 5.5 is proof-positive that superior performance and versatility don’t have to be time-consuming, complicated or expensive.”
