NAMM 2011: BIAS Ships Peak Studio, Announces Peak Studio LE

January 14, 2011

BIAS is now shipping Peak Studio and Peak Studio XT, and Peak Studio LE has just been announced.

Peak Studio is a software suite for audio editing, mastering, and delivery on Mac OS X. Peak Studio includes Peak Pro 7, the latest evolution of the audio editor for the Mac, along with a complementary suite of powerful tools for mastering, restoration, streamlined analog archiving, and more.

Peak Pro 7 includes a new de-clipping tool for repairing audio files. "Clipped" recordings are corrected using advanced re-synthesis and spectral repair DSP algorithms from BIAS. Peak Pro 7 also integrates editions of the SoundSoap Pro 2 and Master Perfection Suite plug-ins, plus a new wide-band peak limiter. Other enhancements include support for MP3 VBR (variable bit rate) and compressed WAVE files, Japanese CD-TEXT, Pro Tools playback keyboard shortcuts, and other improvements. Unlike previous editions, Peak Pro 7 includes DDP (Disc Description Protocol) Export — providing support for this popular pre-master delivery format at no additional charge.

Peak Studio also includes a new application from BIAS called SoundSaver — a powerful utility optimized for the analog archiving workflow. Whether transferring from analog tapes or vinyl LPs, SoundSaver streamlines the process and produces professional results. SoundSaver also supports the Core Audio Format (CAF), allowing users to record beyond the traditional 2 GB file size limit of other file formats – ideal for capturing long performances, especially at higher bit depths and sample rates.

Peak Studio XT (Extended Technology) adds editions of SoundSoap 2, SoundSoap Pro 2, and Master Perfection Suite for compatibility with most host applications that support the popular AU, VST, and RTAS/AS plug-in formats. Peak Studio LE (Limited Edition) includes an updated Playlist with waveform view, along with "Peak Limited" editions of SoundSoap 2, Freq-4, Reveal, and Sqweez-1, and more.

Peak Studio and Peak Studio XT are available now at a suggested retail price of $599 and $1199 respectively. Peak Studio LE will be available Q1 2011, at a price of $129. For more information, visit the BIAS website.
