Dan Dugan Automixer explained

Here is a short video of Dan showing off the new Dugan-MY16 card for Yamaha digital consoles. It is a pretty clear illustration of how smoothly the mixer works.

Shazaam!  Kinda pricey, but much cooler than an SCM800   ;-)

I can't wait to get one of these for my LS9.  As much as I like them, I'm ready to retire my SCM810's.

That's less that the price of one 8 channel Dugan E-1. Sweet!

Very nice!!

That's a bargain.  If our corporate biz picks back up, the Dugan MY card is on my short list of new products to buy.

And Dan is one of those "national treasure" people who is not only a clever designer but also an incredible person, too.

Keep in mind that it nearly replaces 2 $12,000 Dugan D2 automixers, and more than replaces 2 $3200 Dugan E1 automixers. At $2700 it is a bargain.

Me too but I wonder if Yamaha will update the LS9 firmware to give us post fade inserts?

While it is easier to operate the Dugan with a post fader insert, it has been done with pre fade inserts for many years.

One of the advantages that the MY card version has on the model E1, and model D, is the capability to have up to 3 separate automix setups on one system (like the model D2 and D3). Previously with pre fade inserts it was critical to bypass the automixer on those channels that are not active on stage. This keeps them from effecting the mix. With the Dugan-MY16 you can qutomix up to 16 channels broken up into 3 different mixers that do not interact. Post fader is better because you won't have to worry about which channels are active in the automixer, but the capability for 3 mixes can go a long way to making that easier.

Good point.
 I didn't realize how expensive the stand alone units were.
