Peak is the most full-featured, powerful, yet easy-to-use 2-track digital audio editing program available. In just two short years since its initial release, BIAS Peak has evolved into a digital audio editing standard winning critical acclaim from numerous experts and leading publications. Now Peak 2.0 is even more powerful and feature-rich than before, yet it's still the easiest 2-track tool Macintosh audio professionals can use to take their audio from conception to final mix, CD, video, film, or the Web.
