The EQ is fixed. There are the four compressors, but we do really nice 
compression/expansion in DAWs these days <smile>.

In fact, in theory, one could mock up a Dolby decoder using the built-in 
filters and compressors.

Note, I said "one" not "I".

Also, the descriptions of Dolby refer to "dynamic processing".  Isn't that all about a real time situation through a decoder.  I'm asking as one who wants to understand more about the subject.
