The Distributed Audio Control System (DACS) provides a means for
automating common tasks performed in various audio engineering
contexts. Automated mixing, compact disc audio cueing, digital audio
control, and MIDI device control can be automated using the DACS.
This allows complex sequences of events to be controlled with
an ease not previously available.
DACS provides these automation capabilities in two distinct ways.
Integration with existing off-the-shelf MIDI software provides a means
for adding automation to a home-studio environment with relative ease.
Additionally, a custom software environment allows development of audio
scripts which can be cued manually or synced to a time source.
This capability means the DACS is also equally at home in a broadcast audio
or theatre audio setting.
