Publish date:

San Francisco, CA – Dan Dugan Sound Design, the originator of automatic microphone mixing, has released version 2.0 of the Dugan Control Panel for iPad. This new app, now free from the Apple iTunes store, provides the same control functions as the Dugan Control Panel for Java which is supplied with networkable Dugan automixers. The Dugan Control Panel for iPad works on any size iPad and controls any combination of the Dugan Models E, E-1, E-1A, E-2, E-3, M, N, Dugan-VN16 and Dugan-MY16. It can be paired with the Model K Control Surface. As with the supplied Dugan Control Panel for Java, the iPad app allows users to set up channels, name units and channels, assign groups, set weights, mute channels, and manually override the automix. If no Dugan units are on the network when the app is started, the app offers a demo mode that illustrates the controls available for different models.
