Andres, thanks for pointing this out. Watched the demo and another review/demo. This plugin clearly makes an audible difference even with a casual listen to the end result and with the quick workflow makes this a tempting purchase.

Slightly odd video that though, the demo. Immediately I thought "what's wrong with the narrator's voice?" It sounds kinda muffled to me and lacking in richness, a bit like it was recorded on a dynamic mic and not a condenser. Maybe it's my age and my ears, but the interview with Mike Minkler sounded fine. But that's a very awkward problem to have on a video about improving dialogue.

Honestly and truly, I didn't hear any terrific results either in the dialogue processing. Its a dynamic EQ, right? The results sounded like pretty sublte eq and de-essing. It did sound more impressive on the female vocal, ironically (given that it was seemingly designed for spoken word not sung) - to my ears that more obviously with one click made it sound "better".
