a “really affordable and easy-to-use choice for various small and mid-size applications”. The 12-input unit features: a professional audio DSP processing core and algorithms; 24-bit A-D/D-A conversion; analogue and digital interfaces, including optical fibre, coaxial, and AES/EBU; three- band parametric EQ input and nine- band graphical EQ output; and eight mixing channels, supporting main, AUX and sub output, preview, and monitor output. Dan Dugan Sound Design’s Model E-2 automatic mixing controller for live microphones is the company’s new top-of-the-line automatic mixing controller with analogue I/O in a smaller frame, and at a lower price than its predecessors. It includes eight channels with both

Dugan Music System and Dugan Gain Limiting (analogue I/O), and 12 channels with Dugan Speech System (analogue I/O) or 16 channels with Dugan Speech System (ADAT digital). It comes with the Dugan Control Panel for Java, and can be controlled either via an iPad app, the Model CP-2 physical control panel, or the front panel mute and bypass buttons. The E-2 links

mixing technology, now available in audio mixers from Yamaha, Avid, and Waves Audio. The Dugan-MY16 card for a wide

variety of Yamaha mixers provides up to 16 channels of automatic microphone mixing per card at 48kHz or eight channels at 96kHz. Channels can be partitioned into as many as three independent auto-mixers. It includes Windows or Mac software for virtual remote control over a local network. The Dugan-VN16 for Avid Venue

consoles manages multiple live microphones to keep gain consistent throughout the system. It offers 16 auto-mixing channels or eight auto- mixing channels plus eight channels of ADAT I/O, and may be linked with up to seven other Dugans to expand the number of microphones in the system. It is operated from the Dugan Control Panel for Java (included), or a separate iPad app. Waves Audio’s new Dugan

Automatic Mixer plug-in is a software emulation of the popular Dugan Speech System for managing multiple live microphones. It is Waves MultiRack SoundGrid – and MultiRack Native – compatible and works on 32 or 64 channels. Bosch brand Electro-Voice will be
