Waves has announced Dugan Automixer, a plugin that allows automatic cueing of multiple live microphones in real time.
Developed in association with renowned pro audio inventor Dan Dugan, the Waves Dugan Automixer is a groundbreaking software version of the popular Dugan Speech System Automatic Mixing Controllers used the world over.
Incorporating Dugan’s proprietary voice-activated process, the Waves Dugan Automixer plugin automatically controls the gains of multiple microphones in real time, dramatically reducing feedback, studio noise and comb filtering from adjacent microphones. It maintains a consistent system gain, even when multiple speakers are talking simultaneously, and makes perfectly matched crossfades, without any signal compression, and without a noise gate that may cause unwanted sonic artifacts.
Available for virtually any console, the Dugan Automixer is the ultimate solution for broadcast news panels, talk shows, houses of worship, film and television dialog recording, and any other discussion panel or conference scenario involving multiple microphones and participants.
The Dugan Automix is available to purchase for $500 USD (Native) / $750 USD (SoundGrid).
