Control Your Levels Automatically with Dan Dugan Auto-Mixers

Dan Dugan LogoDan Dugan Sound Design is well known and respected for their line of automatic mic mixing products. They are used heavily in broadcast, corporate A/V shows, and House of Worship where there are often several people talking on lavalier mics at one time.
CP-2 and Model E-1A
The latest in a long line of automatic mixers, the Model E series allows for control of a group of live microphones, turning mikes up when someone is talking, and turning down mikes that aren't being used.

Dan's real-time voice activated process addresses the problem of multiple mikes being on at the same time, and the attendant problem of keeping track of the gain of the entire system. Dan's automixers adapt to changing conditions (whereas gates can't) and also help to maintain a natural ambiance in the room without drastic changes in gain.

Dan's automixer card for Yamaha's digital mixers (DuganMy16) is a 16-channel automatic mixing controller that plugs into a slot on Yamaha consoles. This card provides a simple and elegant way to integrate Dan's ground breaking automixing technology with Yamaha's industry standard digital mixers.

Dan Dugan Wiki
Widely recognized as the inventor of the automatic microphone mixer, Dan Dugan has been involved in the professional audio industry for his entire career, which spans four decades. He was the first person in regional theatre to be called a sound designer, and he developed the first effective automatic microphone mixer: the automixer. Dugan's sound design work was acknowledged in 2003 with a Distinguished Career Award by the United States Institute for Theatre Technology.
