After working with this today for several hours, it's my belief that 
there is a gain structure issue in Orion 1 V2 Beta. Even with very low 
levels of drive into the auxiliary input, my monitored (with another 
receiver) audio is distorted when engaging the speech processor at Any 
setting. I did not test the microphone input directly, as I never use it 
in my operation. The distortion is severe enough that it significantly 
alters the frequency response as well. Try as I might, I could not get 
the transmit audio to sound the same in V2 as it did in 1.372. Even with 
the Speech Processor Off, the audio is not as clean as 1.372. I have 
external EQ and compression, but can't get the clean sound I had 
previously. When I reinstalled 1.372, the problems disappeared completely.

Others have reported a "pinched sound"...to me it's just distortion.YMMV
