Waves Introduces the Dugan Automixer + Dugan Speech Bundle

Waves Audio has introduced the Waves Dugan Automixer + Dugan Speech bundle for mixing multiple channels of speech microphones.

Waves said the new Dugan plugins save users the tedious need to manually ride faders while trying to keep up with several people talking at once. Now, with the Waves Dugan Automixer + Dugan Speech bundle, this has never been easier.

Developed with pro audio inventor Dan Dugan, both Dugan plugins are powered by his patented voice-activated process.

This high-value bundle includes two plugins for auto-mixing multiple mics in real time: the new Dugan Speech for integrated use inside the Waves eMotion LV1 live mixing console, and the Dugan Automixer for other major live sound consoles.

With the Dugan Speech plugin, the familiar Dugan Automixer interface is conveniently incorporated into a designated layer mode within the eMotion LV1 mixing console, which you can access from any LV1 channel.

If the user has a non-LV1 console, it can be used together with the Dugan Automixer plugin via the Waves MultiRack plugin host.

These Dugan plugins control the levels of multiple microphones automatically and in real time, dramatically reducing noise, feedback and comb filtering from adjacent microphones.

The Dugan plugins ensure that system gain remains consistent, even when several speakers are talking at the same time. They make perfectly matched crossfades, without any signal compression and without a noise gate that would cause undesirable artifacts.

The Dugan plugins are the definitive solution for broadcast news panels, radio and TV talk shows, motion picture dialog recording, discussion panels or any other situation involving numerous microphones and participants.
