LAS VEGAS, Nevada—Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. and Dan Dugan Sound Design announce the launch of the Dugan-MY16 card for current model Yamaha digital mixers and processors including Yamaha 01V96, DM1000, 02R96, DM2000, M7CL, LS9, DSP5D, PM5D, and DME24/64N. Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems will be the sole distributor for the card, which will be available to customers within North America. The Dugan-MY16 card will make its official debut during the NAB Exhibition at Yamaha Booth C1325 and Dan Dugan Sound Design, Booth C1623.
Dan Dugan Sound Design automatic mic mixing products eliminate cueing errors, reduce feedback and ambient noise pickup, allow for smooth transitions between talkers, provide consistent system gain no matter how many mics are open, have the ability of handling up to 64 live microphones, and can be remotely controlled.
An ideal solution for live for broadcast, corporate A/V, houses or worship and other sound reinforcement applications requiring automatic mic mix capabilities, the new Dugan-MY16 card for Yamaha digital mixers is unique in that it will enable control of live microphones via the real-time voice-activated process known to many as the DUGAN SPEECH SYSTEMâ„¢ as a plug-in card for the Yamaha mixers.
The Dugan-MY16 card provides up to 16 channels of automatic mic mixing per card at 48kHz and will run at 96kHz with 8 channels of operation. It is patched into input channels using the consoles' set up screens. Channels can be partitioned into as many as three independent automixers. An internal web server will provide a full virtual remote control panel over a local network.
“Dan Dugan Sound Design products are highly respected within our industry, and the new Dugan-MY16 card was designed in response to an overwhelming request by our customers to incorporate Dugan technology into our products,” states Marc Lopez, Marketing Manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. “The new card will certainly complement our digital mixer product line.”
Multiple Dugan-MY16 cards can be linked for use in larger system situations; i.e. two cards will provide 32 channels of processing. The new Dugan-MY16 card can also link with all other DSP-based Dugan automixer products such as Models D-2, D-3, E, and E-1.
"My customers in the staging business are heavy users of Yamaha mixers,” states Dan Dugan. They have been asking me for an MY-card version of my automatic mixing controller for years. I'm very pleased to fill their need."
The Dugan-MY16 card will be available during 2nd Quarter 2011 at a targeted MSRP of $2,700.
