Don't have that issue anymore. Highly recommend the SPL Desser.
thanks .. You are correct about the volume those cases I would use automation on the threshold for those instances of screaming. Increase the threshold to provide less reduction during screams...But I am definitely going to check out the SPL Deesser. Sounds awesome. Thanks!
