Highlights of the Booth

Dan Dugan Sound Design will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2018. Technologies invented by Dan Dugan include the Dugan Speech System, which automatically manages any number of live mics in unscripted talking situations, the Dugan Music System, which offers automatic downward expansion to help reduce feedback and noise pick-up in live performances, and Dugan Gain Limiting, which provides continuous, stepless, number-of-open-microphones master gain adjusting to prevent feedback.

The Dugan Speech System is famous for providing the best possible mix of live microphones, creating fast, transparent cross-fades without upcutting, choppy sound or shifts in background noise. Transitions between talkers are smooth and consistent no matter how many mics are open. It is used in television news and sports programs, talk shows, game shows, corporate meetings, political events, teleconferencing, and live theater. Any scene with multiple talkers can be mixed more smoothly and easily with Dugan’s algorithm.

The Dugan products are not mixers in themselves; rather, they are accessories to sound mixing consoles. The “Dugans” patch into the input insert points of a mixing console, adding in Dugan’s powerful automixing while keeping all the other features of your preferred console.

Products to be featured at InterBEE will include the recently-introduced Dugan Model E-3A automixer with AES/ADAT I/O; the Dugan Model M with MADI I/O and Dugan Model N with Dante I/O.
In addition to manufacturing his own products and plug-in cards for other consoles, Dan Dugan licenses his technology to other manufacturers to build in to their products. Dugan technology is featured in many Yamaha products and is also incorporated in products from Sound Devices, Waves and Protech Audio.

Product Names

Dugan Model E-3A AES/ADAT automixer

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.

Up to six internal matrix mixing buses may be patched to any chosen outputs. 16 automixed channels, 16 unprocessed AES inputs, and 16 unprocessed ADAT inputs are all available for a total of 48 inputs to each matrix bus.

Dugan Model M Automixer with MADI I/O

The Model M automixer uses both optical and copper MADI I/O, and is Power over Ethernet (PoE) capable. It provides 32 channels of Dugan auto-mixing at 96K or 64 channels at 48K. The Dugan Speech System, Music System and Gain Limiting algorithms are all supported. In addition the Model M includes a scene memory that can record and recall all operating settings, either globally or by unit, in a library of named scenes.

The Model M can be controlled from its front panel, the Dugan Control Panel for Java (supplied free), the updated Dugan Control Panel for iPad (coming soon), and/or the Dugan Model K Tactile Control Panel. The front panel features a complete miniature Dugan Control Panel on a bright OLED display, operated by navigation keys and a rotary encoder for setting values.

Dugan Model N with Dante I/O

The Model N has primary and secondary Dante network connectors and is Power over Ethernet (PoE) capable. It provides 32 channels of Dugan automixing at 96K or 64 channels at 48K. Dugan Speech System, Music System and Gain Limiting algorithms are all supported. In addition, the Model N includes a new scene memory that can record and recall all operating settings, either globally or by unit, in a library of named scenes.
