FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Waves Audio Announces the Waves Dugan Automixer

135th AES Convention, New York, NY, October 18, 2013 Waves Audio (booth 2839) announces its new Dugan Automixer plugin. Developed in association with sound engineering legend Dan Dugan, the Waves Dugan Automixer is a software emulation of the popular Dugan Speech System Automatic Mixing Controllers used the world over. It 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 simultaneously preventing feedback and excessive noise pickup. It maintains the gain of one mic in the room, even when multiple speakers are talking simultaneously, making perfectly-matched transparent cross-fades.

Says Dan Dugan, “People have been asking for a Dugan plug-in for a long time. I'm very pleased be able to realize it with the premier publisher of plug-ins.”

Ideal for:

  • Broadcast news panels & discussion programs
  • Television talk shows & game shows
  • Conference sound reinforcement and video trucks
  • Dialogue recording for film and television
  • Multiple wireless mics on stage
  • Houses of worship
  • Boardrooms and civic meeting rooms
  • Community television
  • Teleconferencing
  • Distance learning

The Dan Dugan Automixer is MultiRack only, Native- and SoundGrid-compatible. It is not included in any Waves bundle; it is only available separately. The Dan Dugan Automixer will be available with a U.S. MSRP of Native $500 and SoundGrid $750. Visit www.waves.com for more information.
