Sound guy xmas idea #10 – Dan Dugan E-1A
The DD E-1A is the ultimate tool in not caring. It does all the mixing for you and truthfully can do a better job than most seasoned mixers. It’s fast… I mean SUPER fast and accurate. There is a certain Dugan sound and it’s catching on. Automatic mixing/ducking/ muting etc is becoming the norm in Television, churches, public forums, boardrooms etc etc I’ve actually seen “Dan Dugan” receive mixing credits on a tv show. This tool is not going away and the idea is catching on through VST and DSP processing.
I think they’re about $3400 – but think about how much money you’ll save paying attention.
