Plugin Boutique has launched a 3-day flash sale on McDSP’s SA-2 Dialog Processor, an effect plugin based on hardware originally conceived by Academy Award winning re-recording mixer Mike Minkler and used on over 100 major motion pictures.

The SA-2 is designed to improve the overall sound of recorded speech. But the SA-2 is not just for dialog. It’s equally useful for vocals, and is a great tool for adjusting the timbre of any track, a reliable de-esser, and a fine multi-frequency compressor, in our completely biased opinion.

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.

SA-2 Dialog Processor features

  • Five independent bands of strategic active equalization.
  • Multiple process modes for a variety of applications.
  • Unique signal reduction metering.
  • Double precision processing.
  • Ultra low latency.
  • Mono and stereo versions.

SA-2 Dialog Processor Native (VST/AU/AAX) is on sale for only £36 GBP until May 30th. The HD version is also 71% off this weekend.
