McDSP Ships SA-3 Spectral Processor

US New version of the plug-in for removing unwanted spectral spikes      09/11/23

McDSP tells us that they are now shipping the SA-3 Spectral Processor. They say that the SA-3 takes the algorithms of the Engineering Emmy Award winning SA-2 Dialog Processor to another level. New features include adding over 1,000 bands of processing, a user programmable Bias curve, unique Focus, Range, and Density control over spectral processing, side chain support and mid/side processing.

A spokesperson told us, "Like the SA-2, the SA-3 is great for removing unwanted spectral spikes in dialog, vocals, and many other kinds of audio inputs. The SA-3 is also able to track and eliminate persistent peaks, at nearly any frequency in the audio spectrum."

The gain reduction, final output, or removed signal can be monitored and metered in the main LCD screen. Plot scales can be adjusted for gain reduction and output displays.

Feature List:
• Over 1,000 bands of processing
• User programmable Bias curve to identify and remove signal spikes and persistent overtones • Unique Focus, Range, and Density control over spectral processing
• Side chain support
• Double precision processing
• Mono and stereo versions

Pricing and Availability:
The SA-3 Spectral Processor is included in the All Access Subscription, and in the Everything Pack Bundle.
