PSO1 (Plugin shout-out): McDSP SA-2

I've been thinking about doing plugin shout-outs for a while now.  I have so many of them, however there are some I couldn't live/work without.

McDSP SA-2

The SA-2 Dialog Processor is made up of 5 bands of strategic active equalization, configured in a variety of modes to best address common issues of dialog. Each band of active equalization has a threshold control to determine at what signal level the active equalizer begins to effect the signal. There are also enable buttons for each band to quickly audition the effect of any given band. Two mode selectors – one for controlling the ballistics of the active equalization, and a second for placing the five bands at strategic locations in the frequency spectrum. Finally, there are input and output gain controls for overall adjustment.

Absolutely brilliant plugin. One of those set-it-up-and-forget-it.
Despite its focus being primarily on dialogue processing I tend to use whilst developing new SFX packs - it takes away a lot of harshness without making it dull.
