BIAS Inc. has begun shipping Peak Pro 5.2, the Universal Binary version of Peak Pro audio editing software for Mac OS 10.4 on both PowerPCs and Intel-based Macs.
While Peak Pro 5 required an included USB key to operate, V. 5.2 now uses a non-hardware–based method of copy protection, offering greater flexibility for customers interested in retaining the use of their USB ports for other peripherals. For Peak Pro 5 customers who prefer the USB key, V. 5.2 retains this compatibility. Although Peak Pro 5.2 no longer requires or includes a USB key, customers may order it on request from BIAS should they desire a hardware alternative to the new software-based authorization system.
Peak Pro 5 and Peak LE 5 customers may download the update directly from the BIAS Website at no charge. Peak Pro XT 5 users may also update their license of Peak Pro 5 to V. 5.2 at no charge via the BIAS Website. New retail editions of Peak LE 5.2 ($129), Peak Pro 5.2 ($599) and Peak Pro XT 5 ($1,199) are available through authorized BIAS resellers and directly from BIAS.
Free trial versions of Peak Pro 5.2 and Peak LE 5.2 are available for download from BIAS’ Website. Upgrades from previous versions of Peak, special cross-grades, single academic editions and academic lab packs are also available for purchase.
