Dan Dugan Sound Design Model E1A Automatic Mixing Controller

The Dan Dugan Model E-1A Automatic Mixing Controller helps professional audio mixers handle multiple live mics without having to continually ride their individual faders. This eight-channel (analog) or sixteen-channel (digital) 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-1A’s voice-controlled crossfades track unscripted dialogue perfectly, eliminating cueing mistakes and late fade-ups while avoiding the choppy and distracting effects common to noise gates.
