At the 2016 NAB Show in Las Vegas, Waves Audio (booth #C2451) is showing its Dugan Automixer plug-in. Developed in association with sound engineer Dan Dugan, the Waves Dugan Automixer is a software version of the Dugan Speech System Automatic Mixing Controllers. Available for every console, the Dugan Automixer is MultiRack SoundGrid- and MultiRack Native-compatible, and works on 32 or 64 channels.
The Dugan Automixer plug-in is designed for broadcast news panels and discussion programs; television talk shows and game shows; conference sound reinforcement and video trucks; dialog recording for film and television; multiple wireless mics onstage; houses of worship; boardrooms and civic meeting rooms; community television; teleconferencing; and distance learning.
Using Dugan's proprietary voice-activated process, the Waves Dugan Automatic Mixing Controller plug-in automatically controls the gains of multiple live microphones in real time while preventing feedback and excessive noise pickup. Maintaining the gain of one mic in the room even when multiple speakers are talking simultaneously, it promises perfectly matched, transparent cross-fades.
