What I don't get is why they keep the site on "authorizing and de-authorizing" as mentioned on that page: if they don't want to make money out of it, why don't they simply make a last free version?
It was a great product but certainly way overpriced as many have mentioned... :-)

I guess they'll keep trying to polish this turd as long as people keep shelling out for it.

Yes, BIAS Peak does stuff other sound editing apps don't do, but its interface is doo-doo. I have found other ways of getting my audio editing done.

Goodbye, BIAS Peak. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

just trashed all my BIAS apps…

They treat and punish customers like criminals and call this company policy:

"Dear Customer - of course we will take your money (lots of money)- but in our eyes you are potential criminal and you first have to proof the opposite…"

NO THANKS!
There are other great software companies and developers with a different policy and I'll be glad to give them my money!

Peak 5.2 is very-very buggy on my MacBook. Markers disappear when highlighting a section in reverse order, saving doesn't work if you open the file in column view, but worst of all - it quits randomly, and unexpectedly for no apparent reason. I have no plug-ins other then what came with it, I'm not even using those, just adding markers in a stereo document, and it crashes. I give up on using Peak 5.2.x Peak 4.x always worked great, but this new version is apparently a rushed to market beta version of the application.

This is the worst thing Bias has ever put out. Maybe eventually after we test it for them, they will release a stable professional application. I work in ProTools and the difference is night and day. That app works perfect, no anomilies, never ever crashes.

While Peak Pro 5 required an included USB key in order to operate, version 5.2 now utilizes a non-hardware based method of copy protection, offering greater flexibility for customers interested in retaining the use of their USB ports for other peripherals. For Peak Pro 5 customers who prefer the USB key, version 5.2 retains this compatibility. Although Peak Pro 5.2 no longer requires or includes a USB key, customers may order it on request from BIAS should they desire a hardware alternative to the new software based authorization system.

The GUI has always bothered me; very unmac-like.

The fact that it requires a dongle makes this an unacceptable choice.

For years it has suffered from bad GUI design, a clunky interface in otherwords. Still leaves all sorts of garbage behind on your drive, "peakSave.temp" and afm.temp" files chewing up disk space for you. Even though you saved a file it will still ask if you want to save the file before closing. One of the stupidest applications around. It will not let you work on one channel of "dual mono" files, nor extract the channel you want. Dual mono files are used in film production.

Don't fall for the upgrade to Version 5!
1) It requires a dongle!
2) the Free Soap 2 offer is only for full retail purchase. Here is how I know...
I was approached with the pre-order offer and did so... The offer stated siply "Pre-order Peak Pro 5 now, get a free SoundSoap (a $99 value)". Well it's only true if you pay full retail! I don't see where it says upgrades excluded. In fact it says nothing until you eMail Sales inquiring about the absence of the free Soap 2. They will reply "The free SoundSoap 2 product is included for indivdiduals that purchased Peak 4.1 outright rather
than as an upgrade." (I assume they meant 5 not 4.1.)

SO DON"T GET ENTICED BY THEIR BAIT-AND-SWITCH TACTICS. It's a scam for upgraders.

I recommend checking out Wave Editor http://www.audiofile-engineering.com/

I wrote the topic post and also posted it in the BIAS forum. It did not last long in the forum but did get their attention. I explained my reasons for the claim and they understood. They continued to insist I was not eligible for the Soap 2 promo because they state the qualifications in the press release. I stated the pre-order emial offer took me directly to the product page and a pre-order button. I never was directed to nor did I read the press release. Long story short - upgraders who purchased Peak 4 BEFORE April 2005 don't get the freebie Soap 2.

They did eventually agree to compensate me to keep me as a customer - rather than refund my total purchase price.
