BIAS Inc. announced that a special bundled edition of Peak 4.1 ($499 SRP) that includes SoundSoap Pro ($599 SRP), the universal restoration plug-in, and SuperFreq ($79 SRP) 10 band mastering EQ is now available for just $899 US list - a savings of nearly $300 off the combined list prices if purchased separately.
Peak 4.1 features fast editing, a streamlined highly customizable brushed-metal interface, support for VST and Audio Units plug-ins, powerful processing tools including ImpulseVerb (Convolution Reverb), Sqweez (Compressor Limiter), Harmonic Rotate, Batch Processing, Vbox effects matrix, and more. Peak 4.1 also includes Roxio's Jam 6 - the professional Redbook standard CD mastering software for Mac OS X - and SFX Machine LT, a limited edition of the popular multi-effects sound design plug-in. The inclusion of Jam 6 enables users to include track indexes, CD text, track names, ISRCs (International Standard Recording Code), and additional information necessary for the production of commercial replication-ready CDs. While Peak 4.1 supports direct CD burning - creating Redbook CD's that can be played on any CD player - customers requiring full access to the Redbook specification will certainly appreciate Jam 6.
SoundSoap Pro is an audio restoration plug-in with a unique, integrated interface. This allows the user to access any tool quickly and easily from within a single plug-in window. Tool navigation tabs are labeled (left to right) "Hum & Rumble," "Click & Crackle," "Broadband," and "Noise Gate" - reflecting the suggested order in which the operations should be performed for optimal results. The tabs even provide convenient parameter feedback, allowing the user to monitor the primary tool settings, regardless of which tool is currently selected. SoundSoap Pro's approach to multi-band noise reduction focuses on speed, usability, and performance. SoundSoap Pro groups 512 bands into 12 discrete threshold and reduction sliders - delivering dramatically enhanced efficiency, ease-of-use, and superb sonic results. The sliders may be easily grouped with a lock button, and 12 vibrant level meters assist in threshold adjustments. When used with SoundSoap Pro's additional attack, release, and tilt controls, even the toughest broadband noise can be easily and dramatically reduced, while minimizing the chance of artifacts. Furthermore, users can easily hear the noise they are reducing by selecting "Noise Only."
SuperFreq includes -18dB to +18dB Gain Values; 0.1 to 30 "Q" (bandwidth) values; sweepable frequencies from 20Hz to 20kHz, individual band bypass buttons; 24dB stereo input/output meters; and filters including Peak, Notch, High Shelf, Low Shelf, High Cut, and Low Cut. SuperFreq includes a 4,6 and 8-band edition for added flexibility.
