Waves has announced the availability of its new Dugan Automixer plugin. They say that, developed in association with sound engineering legend Dan Dugan, the Waves Dugan Automixer is a software version of the popular Dugan Speech System Automatic Mixing Controllers used the world over. Available for every console, the Dugan Automixer is MultiRack SoundGrid- and MultiRack Native-compatible and works on 32 or 64 channels.
Using Dugan's proprietary voice-activated process, the Waves Dugan Automatic Mixing Controller plugin automatically controls the gains of multiple live microphones in real time while preventing feedback and excessive noise pickup. Maintaining the gain of one mic in the room even when multiple speakers are talking simultaneously, it makes perfectly matched transparent cross-fades.
Dugan notes, "People have been asking for a Dugan plugin for a long time. I'm very pleased be able to realize it with the premier publisher of plug-ins."
The Dan Dugan Automixer is compatible only with MultiRack Native and MutiRack SoundGrid. It is not included in any Waves bundle it is only available separately.
