Peak Pro 6 from Bias is a comprehensive set of software tools that allow the audio professional to edit audio for a wide range of tasks, including sound design for film, video, or multimedia, for rapid-fire broadcast editing and music production, mastering and CD production. A huge compliment of enhancements has been added to the current software over previous versions.

Lightning fast editing and processing, the ability to record directly into the program or import CD tracks, unlimited undo/redo, extensive tools for adding and editing markers, loops, and regions, and automatic selection across zero crossings barely scratches the surface of this program.

Advanced QuickTime movie and DV clip support within the software features better-than-frame accurate synchronization of audio and movie playback, even during selection and scrubbing. Support for Audio Units and VST plug-ins extends the processing prowess of the program.

Some of the features that have been added over previous versions include new cross-fade modes, volume envelopes that can be used across entire regions, fades and cross-fades, as well as several additional control features. "Cache in RAM" delivers ultra-fast RAM based editing. Voiceover ducking DSP is ideal for podcast authoring, while Vbox provides a cross-synthesis link for creative sound design via live input of any audio source.
