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.
[Version 2.1.2]
