Automatic mixing pioneer appears at AES

Widely acknowledged as the father of automatic mixing, Dan Dugan appeared at the recent AES convention in San Francisco to demonstrate the new Model E Automatic Mixing Controller. The unit is designed to help audio mixers handle multiple live mics without having to continually ride their individual faders. The eight-channel line-level processor patches into the input insert points of an audio mixing console and includes the Dugan Speech System, dramatically improving results by eliminating late upcuts. It is also linkable with the Dan Dugan Sound Design Model D-2 and D-3 controllers.

The Model E detects which mics are receiving input and makes fast, transparent cross-fades, freeing the mixer to focus on balance and sound quality instead of being chained to the faders. The Model E's voice-controlled "gain sharing" tracks unscripted dialogue perfectly, eliminating cueing mistakes and late fade-ups while avoiding the choppy and distracting effects common to noise gates.

The Model E is particularly applicable to broadcasting situations like panel discussions, reality TV and theatrical productions. Among the enthusiastic broadcast users of Dugan automixers are “Late Night with David Letterman,” “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” and WABC New York.
