Give Your Dialog An Emmy Award-Winning Edge
Introducing The McDSP SA-2 Dialog Processor
Dialog. It is the focal point of any movie, television show, documentary, video game or, for that matter, any creative media production involving the spoken word. Regardless of the “eye candy” on screen, your dialog is what tells the story, and thus conveys that story’s emotional tone to the audience. After all, if you can’t hear what the actors are saying, why watch something at all?
However, once you throw in a sweeping musical score and dozens of foley effects, it can be very easy to lose your dialog in the mix. This is where McDSP’s SA-2 can make ALL the difference.

How Does The McDSP SA-2 Dialog Processor Work?
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. There are also 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. Everything you need to bring your vocal or dialog track clearly into focus.
Why The McDSP SA-2 Dialog Processor Is Such A Big Deal
- Five independent bands of strategic active equalization
- Multiple process modes for a variety of applications
- Unique signal reduction metering
- Double precision processing

- Mono and stereo versions
““It did act as a really nice high frequency catcher on my dialog group. It worked very well for me.””
“After taking the SA-2 for a test drive, I can see myself using this quite often, and not only for dialog, but for instruments as well.”
