Dan Dugan Sound Design
The new Dugan Model E-3A is an automatic microphone mixing controller with AES digital I/O. It provides fast, transparent cross-fades without upcutting, choppy sound or shifts in background noise. The Model E-3A is designed to connect to standard mixing consoles via insert points, making it a versatile and useful tool for sound engineers who frequently manage multiple microphones at live events such as talk shows, sports broadcasts, governmental sessions or corporate meetings.
The Model E-3A replaces the prior Model E-3. The new version incorporates a bright OLED front panel, which is used for automix gain display, management of six matrix mixing buses and other control functions. The E-3A accommodates 16 channels of AES I/O at 48kHz or 96kHz, and may be easily linked to other Dugan digital mixers for system expansion. Alternatively, users may utilize AES and ADAT I/O simultaneously for a maximum of 32 channels at 48kHz.
