Sound Devices Scorpio

Sound Devices, LLC has announced the addition of Dugan Automixing to its new Scorpio Premium Portable Mixer-Recorder. The Dugan Speech System™ algorithm incorporated in the Scorpio gives users maximum flexibility for management of multiple live microphones in the field. 16 channels of Dugan automixing are supported in the compact, powerful Scorpio, which offers 32 channels, 12 buses and 36 tracks of recording and incorporates 16 ultra low-noise Scorpio microphone preamplifiers.

The announcement follows earlier additions of Dugan automixing to Sound Devices’ 688 Mixer-Recorder and the 633 Mixer-Recorder. Sound Devices’ field mixers and recorders have an exclusive license for Dugan technology.

"Sound Devices has enjoyed a long and successful partnership with Dan Dugan Sound Design. We are pleased to offer his technology in our newest mixer-recorder," said Jon Tatooles, Chief of Business Development at Sound Devices.

Dan Dugan, CEO of Dan Dugan Sound Design, Inc. is himself a Sound Devices user, employing their products in field recordings for the Nature Sounds Society. “I am impressed with their quality and robust construction,” said Dugan. “With the addition of the Dugan Speech System™ algorithm, users can focus on overall sound quality and the mix balance rather than trying to ride herd on all of the microphones.”
