Professional Automation for Multi-microphone Mixing


The Dugan-MY16 is an automatic mixing card for Yamaha digital mixers that employs advanced technology from Dan Dugan Sound Design. When multiple microphone inputs need to be mixed without a script or pre-planned gain changes, the Dugan-MY16 can automatically optimize gain distribution over multiple faders so that the engineer is free to concentrate on the quality of the mix, rather than being chained to the faders. It’s almost like having a talented assistant engineer keeping track of fader levels, lightening the overall workload and maximizing efficiency.


Dan Dugan Sound Design


Dan Dugan Sound Design specializes in automatic mixing technology, with automatic mixer inventor Mr. Dan Dugan at the helm. Initially licensed by the Altec company for their automatic mixers, the unique algorithm of the Dugan Speech System™ is now being made available inhigh-performance automatic mixing systems under the Dan Dugan Sound Design brand. Dan Dugan products have become standards in broadcast studios, conferences, and houses of worship in the United States, prized for their outstanding performance and reliability.
