“We are thrilled to receive this award, and we are grateful to the members of CAS for their vote,” said creator and industry icon Dan Dugan.

Dugan Automatic Mixing is an algorithm that smoothly attenuates unused microphones for a cleaner, clearer mix during multi-microphone speech applications. This highly-regarded feature is built-in to the 633. “The 633 is a perfect match for putting in automatic mixing because it adds another feature to what is already a really fabulous line of products,” said Dugan.
