After a few weeks of trying to use this software, I give up. Buggy and unstable, It promises much and delivers little. I need a fast two track audio editor for daily use and was excited when I tried the demo. It seemed to be just what I was looking for at a good price. Unfortunately, soon after my purchase, the problems began. DSP-Quattro uses a very complicated user verification and registration scheme. Although I was able to purchase by download, I had to wait a day to first use the software because the "automated" registration process on the web site did not work as promised and I needed to receive my password via e-mail from Italy. Due to the international time difference, any inquiry or support request will most be likely be answered the following day. Once installed, DSP-Quattro proved unstable and frustrating. My major need at first was to process a drive full of aiff files which only required some pitch adjustment and minor editing. After successfully changing the pitch of my first file I tried to save it only to receive the message "Error in user parameter list", the following error message suggests trying "save as". Accepting the choice to "save as" results in an unplayable file which must be closed and then re-opened if you wish to play it or do any further edits. Don't bother searching the 157 page PDF user manual for "User parameter" or "Error message", you won't find anything. Frequently DSP-Quattro would freeze up requiring a forced quit. I tried simplifying my set-up, using only the built-in audio at the frequency of the aiff files but still had continual problems. Even with no other programs running on my G5 dual processor machine, sometimes I had to re-boot the machine. Something no other program has ever required since I have had the machine. AS IS SOFTWARE A check of DSP-Quattro's Liscence agreement reads: THE SOFTWARE AND ACCOMPANYING ELECTRONIC AND WRITTEN MATERIALS (INCLUDING INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE) ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND.

High Sierra has borked this fine app. The launch error can be fixed by rebuilding the VST database from the "Plug-ins" section of DSP-Quattro's preferences. However, trying to save an edited audio file [e.g., .wav] fails... eventually leading up to a crash. Have already emailed the developer, and am awaiting a response (or preferably an update here). -HI-

Here's a recent thread with an authorization workaround for High Sierra (which may not address your bug), and reporting that the dev hopes to have v5 out for the Jan 2018 NAMM show:

Great software! Nothing close to this on a Mac Platform. It is like a CD Architect on Steroids. Last version is super stable . The only thing i could wish is that keyboard shortcuts and behaiveour was more PT like.

Greets, Beautiful software! Does Quattro have Sample-Level editing where you can easily zoom in, view and adjust the dB level of each bit, a la Soundtrack Pro? In STP there are handles for each bit which makes it easy to arrest the tiniest of digital blips, one at a time. This is a crucial feature, for me. Thanks!

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?
