Avid Expands the Capability of Its Proven and Trusted Live Systems with Industry-Leading Automixing Functionality
New Dugan-VN16 makes it easier for live sound professionals around the world to deliver higher-quality mixes
"Avid's industry-leading live sound solutions are built on the most open
and tightly integrated platform," said
Developed and manufactured by Dan Dugan Sound Design, the Dugan-VN16 option card provides Avid live system users with industry-leading dialog automixing functionality in a convenient and integrated solution. Dugan-VN16 simplifies mixing and improves audio quality in situations where multiple speech microphones are used, including broadcast events, conferences, house of worship services, theater performances, and more.
The Dugan-VN16 option card greatly improves operational efficiency by automatically adjusting microphone levels faster than what would be possible using manual workflows. Unlike a noise gate, which can introduce distracting sonic artifacts, Dugan-VN16 utilizes real-time voice activation to automatically lower the volume of unused live speech microphones and raise volume when presenters begin speaking. Sound engineers can greatly reduce feedback, comb filtering, and background noise without having to manually adjust levels.
"We're proud to partner with Avid, an industry leader in live sound,"
Dugan-VN16 allows Avid live sound owners to meet the unique requirements of high-profile multi-mic speech applications.
