Unlike previous editions, Peak Pro 7 includes DDP (Disc Description Protocol) Export, providing support for this pre-master delivery format at no additional charge.

Peak Studio provides a new state-of-the-art audio production environment from BIAS, offering multitrack audio recording, multichannel editing, mono/stereo/surround mixing, onboard signal processing, cross-fades featuring Bezier curves, independent volume envelopes, integration with Peak and more. Peak Studio also includes a new application from BIAS called SoundSaver, a utility optimized for the analog archiving workflow.

Peak Pro 7 and Peak Pro XT 7 will be available in Q4 2010 at a U.S. SRP of $599 and $1,199, respectively, through authorized resellers worldwide and directly from BIAS. The Peak Studio multichannel production environment will be released in Q2 of 2011.
