Waves Offers Dugan Automixer & Speech Plugin Bundle

Waves Audio is now offering the Dugan Automixer and Dugan Speech bundle — two plugins that allow for auto-mixing several mics in real time for broadcasting, talk shows and motion picture dialog.

Waves said users get the Dugan Speech plugin for integrated use inside the eMotion LV1 mixing console and the Dugan Automixer plugin for use with other major consoles via the MultiRack plugin host.

Developed with pro audio inventor Dan Dugan, both plugins are powered by his patented voice-activated process. The plugins save users the need to manually ride faders while trying to keep up with several people talking. They can auto-mix up to 64 channels simultaneously and make perfectly matched crossfades, without compression or noise gates that would cause unwanted artifacts.

The plugins also reduce noise, feedback and comb filtering from neighboring microphones, ensuring consistent overall gain even when numerous speakers are talking simultaneously.
