I am looking to introduce automixer system using the above-mentioned hardware for the live production in an auditorium hall.
My use case is to use multiple microphones (2 for now), such that, when one in use, another's gain gets compressed, hence, lowering the chance of audio-loops (whistles) and vice versa.
I want to know if I can achieve the same with available hardware and if yes then how? and if no, then what can I do to achieve the same. I am completely new in managing audios.
I have been thinking following to achieve the required:
- Plug Microphones into the audio interface,
- Using any DAW to achieve automatic gain control over two mics, and returning the output from DAW to audio interface OUTs
- Inserting Outputs of Audio interface as inputs to mixer,
- Using mixer's master out as final out to speakers.
If the above flow works, then the major thing that I am worried about is DAW, I don't know which DAW can fulfill my requirement. If possible, please suggest any open-source one, else paid as well works.
If I am going completely wrong, please suggest a way out for a system where I can introduce automixer over multiple microphones
