BIAS launches Peak Express 6 audio editor for Mac
Berkley Integrated Audio Software (BIAS) has introduced Peak Express 6, an upgraded, streamlined audio editor for Mac. Previously available only as an OEM version, Peak Express 6 adds significant features, including integration with the BIAS iProRecorder application.
Peak Express 6 offers essential audio importing, recording, editing and processing options for both the casual and more serious audiophile. Peak Express 6 opens most popular file formats, including AIFF, WAVE, SDII, MP3, MP2, QuickTime, AAC and FLAC. It can import entire tracks, or selected portions, directly from CDs, making it easy to create custom mixes or sound collages from existing content. Editing features such as cut, copy, paste and crop are included along with processing options such as normalization, sample-rate conversion, adjustable gain and fades. An intuitive pencil tool for manual repair of digital clicks is also included.
The software also supports and includes dozens of audio units and VST effects plug-ins — from simple tone control to reverb, delay and more exotic effects. Peak Express 6 saves audio files in most popular formats, but files can also be sent directly from Peak Express to iTunes for easy transfer to an iPod. Users can select whether to let iTunes handle the encoding, send the file uncompressed or use different encoders within Peak Express 6 prior to sending. Metadata editing is also supported and ID3 tags featuring artist, album, genre, etc., can be added prior to export.
Peak Express 6 is available now with free trial downloads and introductory pricing. The audio recording application for the iPhone and iPod touch, iProRecorder, is available from the Apple iTunes App Store.
