At NAB, BIAS showed Peak 4, an upgrade to the stereo waveform-editing application for Macs. New features in Peak 4 include support for Audio Unit plug-ins, multiprocessor support, Redbook CD burning from within Peak, new DSP tools (PureVerb, Bit Usage, Squeez) and much more.
Peak's graphic user interface has been streamlined and sports a brushed-metal look. The upgrade is also a Mac OS X-only app, allowing users to take advantage of the OS X-only services within OS X.
"Peak 4 really raises the bar for editing and mastering professional audio on the Macintosh platform," said Jason Davies, VP of worldwide sales for BIAS. "Peak 4 really represents what a Macintosh user loves and expects from a professional audio-editing experience. And, the addition of powerful new features really does make this the most exciting revision of Peak ever."
Peak 4 will be available Q2 of this year with a SRP of $499; Version 4 of Peak LE and Peak DV will be available soon thereafter. Upgrades to Peak 4 are $149. Customers who purchase Peak/Peak LE/Peak DV 3 after April 1 will receive a free upgrade. For additional product information, head on over to www.bias-inc.com.
