> Peak is pretty great as a 2 track editor. Perfectly good program.

Peak is ok for cut and paste editing, simple gain adjusts and so on.
It's pretty poor when you get into more elaborate filtering.

The biggest problem with Peak right now is price inflation. They are way
overcharging for what they are offering. They know we have little choice
other than even more expensive programs. Even the upgrades are expensive.

SparkXL still runs for me on the latest OSX. Even though they closed out
the program the company does still provide some mild support.

The nice plugins from Elemental Audio Systems were taken over by Roger
Nichols Digital and given a massive price increase.

What's needed in mac land is a good high quality sound editor for nature
recording that's reasonably priced. Between that and my photography
software I may eventually just have to drop, probably the sound, just
because I can't afford to support the software. Sound is the logical one
to go because with rising gas prices it's much harder to get out where
you can record, and that's only going to get worse.
