Highlights of the Booth

Now in its 50th year, Dan Dugan Sound Design creates automatic microphone mixing technology for use in live events.

An automatic microphone mixer controls a group of live microphones, turning up mics when someone is talking and turning down mics that are not being used. The real-time voice-activated process invented by Mr. Dugan maintains overall system gain and ensures everyone is being heard at the right time. The technologies invented by Dan Dugan are widely recognized for their “transparent” gain-sharing operation. Overall system gain is held at the level of one microphone, regardless of who is talking, how loudly (or softly) they are talking or how many people are trying to talk at once. Operation is simple: microphones are connected, system gain is set, and the automatic microphone mixer takes care of the rest. The result is clear, understandable audio without upcutting of microphones or shifts in noise.

Dugan products are used in news and sports programs, talk shows, corporate meetings, political debates, distance learning, live theater and other applications. 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.
