The Dugan-VN16 Option Card brings industry-leading automixing capabilities to Avid SC48, FOH Rack-, and Mix Rack-based live sound systems, offering the easiest way to mix balanced speech and dialogue across multiple live mics. The card automatically detects active mics and adjusts volumes to minimize feedback, comb filtering, and background noise.

Unlike a noise gate, which can introduce distracting sonic artifacts, the Dugan-VN16 dynamically adapts to the room environment, turning up mics as people speak and turning them down when they aren’t, while transparently cross-fading channels to maintain consistent system gain. The result is high-quality mixes with great clarity, without having to ride faders or intently follow the conversation.

The Dugan-VN16 plugs into an I/O slot of Avid digital audio mixers. It has three modes of operation: 1) Standard mode provides sixteen channels of Dugan automatic mixing that are patched using the console’s insert patching screen, 2) Shared mode provides eight channels of Dugan automatic mixing and eight channels of general purpose ADAT I/O. The Dugan automatic mixing channels are patched using the VENUE system’s insert patching screen, 3) ADAT I/O mode provides sixteen ADAT I/O channels. To make larger systems, the Dugan-VN16 can be linked with external Dugans, including the D series and the E series. The Dugan-VN16 can be used "out of the box," or for enhanced features, remote controlled by the Dugan Control Panel for Java (included) or the Dugan Control Panel for iPad (purchased separately).
