Does DSP Quattro have a noise removal tool where you can select a silent section of a track which it learns from and then you can apply settings globally?

I had to take time and contact MacUpdate to brag on DSP-Quatrro. I have a home studio and use Logic as my primary DAW. I had just finished mixing my album and needed to start thinking about mastering. I had used Bias Peak as my mastering and quickie audio editor (for church sermons and other simple audio tasks). I was very upset when Bias went out of business, and had a rough time finding a product that provided the same professional tools.

Then I received an email that would allow licensed users of Bias Peak to try DSP-Quattro. I purchased the program and mastered my EP through the program. What a HUGE blessing! DSP-Quattro fit the bill perfectly. Stephan Daino responded quickly and effectively to any email I sent. DSP-Quattro gave me the option of burning the finished product or exporting the files. Most tasks were intuitive and with a little practice I learned the program quickly (adding metadata was easy with the built in template). I have also used DSP-Quattro as my secondary DAW - I'm happy on all accounts. I use an older Core 2 Duo MBP and a newer i5 machine. DSP-Quattro works as stated on both machines.

All you Mac home studio geeks out there can rest assured you won't find a better program for a better price. I highly RECOMMEND DSP-Quattro. My web site is not up to sample the finished product, but you can email me at archidude@mac.com with any questions about my experience with DSP-Quattro.

Q: I currently have audacity (not crazy about it) and WireTap Pro. Can anyone tell me how this compares to DSP-Quattro. Very interested in what sounds like an easier integrated export option. Anyone?

Go for DSP-Quattro Deedoo. The program works great and can handle several levels of audio needs from simple recording to professional editing and mastering

sine soundtrack pro is not more a good editor on Mavericks.. needing a good audio editor (with some advanced features like "export regions"), DSP-Quattro seemed a good choice.. and i confirm it (i just bought it after several weeks of trial)

PS: (i tried them all, but not SoundForge or Adobe Audition.. too big and expensive)

and, last but not least, it's coded by a very good italian developer with many years of experience in audio technology

I agree. The beautiful interface that used to be a mere clone of Apple’s Logic 9 is now actually quite unique after the interface of Logic X was completely revamped. I like the new interface of Logic X but I love the classic green/black/grey look of DSP-Quattro.

Overall, I'm not sure why people are having such a hard time with the installation/Registration process because it's EXTREMELY easy... It's literally the exact same as most software I've bought in the past... The only difference I can see is Stefano Daino, the owner is the most diligent man I've ever seen with help on anything! He stands by his product 100% and I'll tell you that alone made me a fan and convinced me to change from Wavelab to Quattro. I didn't even have a macupdate account and made one just to let you know how simple it was to get started! Don't listen to the haters and follow the directions! They are seriously clear as day on the email when you purchase the software... Bravo, Stefano! A great professional product at a price that is not outrageous! If you're curious I suggest you try it! I'm glad I did!

imposible to install without a super hassle. I ahve not tried it yet cause I can't install it. Its unbelievably complex and opaque and uses various words like pin and password and acitvation and registration without any logic. I wrote and asked for either help to iunstall it or a refund. I would look elsewhere unless you are up for a huge hassle installing this, IF it even can be done.

Hi,

again, I apologize for the problem...

we are understanding that in this last period there were several cases of missed inclusion of the complete procedure for registering DSP-Quattro into the receipt automatically sent by our server. We apologize for this.

Please never hesitate to write to me at support @ dsp-quattro.com for assistance.
Thanks!

He did write to me direclty immediately but I have not followed up yet as I just don't have the time to mess around. So I want to acknowledge that his will to help is sincere and I guess it was a bug in his system, which, from the previous emails, is not as easy as most are. But I will write back about this when I get a chance to deal with it. It looks like a good audio editing app.

I'm not buying exclusively because of the painful registration system. I personally own and use 5 Macs of which I would want DSP-Quattro on three. What a horrible licensing system (single machine and each machine requires custom generated files). Even Adobe (devils in developers clothing) are not so onerous.

Hi Uncoy,

please consider that there are not problems to install DSP-Quattro on all your macs, the license is single user, not single installation... The only limitation is that it is for your personal use only.

If you will need assistance to install it or about using DSP-Quattro, do not hesitate to write to me.

All the best,

This is meant as a reply to I3 S.r.l.'s reaction to Uncoy.

I bought the MU Promo of DSP-Quattro a few hours before the offer ran out late last night. And I didn't check the comments (as diligently as I normally do before) purchase. My bad.

The registration system is not difficult - for me at least - but it most certainly is a big hassle.
(It reminded me of the process to acquire an SSL certificate from a certificate authority.)

Most MU Promo apps I've bought were a simple copy/paste of a Licence Name & Key which were visible directly after purchase, which is *much* easier.

In this reply; no comment on the quality of the DSP-Quattro software itself, but if I'd known about the registration beforehand... I would not have bought it.

Hi Wyrdrune,

I apologize if the procedure is not user-friendly, we will work to make it very much easier. But, please, never hesitate to write to me when you will need assistance!

Thank you for choosing DSP-Quattro,

Hi Wydrune,

Thanks for your detailed feedback. While it is a relief to know it is not a single machine license, this kind of license hassle is simply not possible. I own a couple of hundred software programs and actively use intensively dozens. If each program took the approach of DSP-Quattro, I'd spend all my time managing licenses and not doing work.

I'm happy to throw a hundred dollars at open source fairly regularly just to the licensing hassle they save me. Paid software better be low hassle.
