Dan Dugan Sound Design Model E-2 Automatic Mixing Controller Balanced Analog I/O

The Dan Dugan Model E-2 Automatic Mixing Controller helps professional audio mixers handle multiple live mics without having to continually ride their individual faders. This signal processor patches into the input insert points of an audio mixing console. It detects which mics are being used and makes fast, transparent cross-fades, freeing the mixer to focus on balance and sound quality instead of being chained to the faders.

The Model E-2 tracks unscripted dialogue, eliminating cueing mistakes and late fadeups, while avoiding the choppy and distracting effects common to noise gates.
