Replacement for Bias Peak?

now that Bias is over and done, I'm seeking recommendations/opinions on what might be the best replacement audio editor for Mac.

No more Bias Peak

I'm currently trying DSP Quattro, and it's not all roses but it's at least as capable as Peak for mastering.

I'm looking forward to seeing what Soundforge for Mac looks like.

I dunno about it being a replacement for Peak. But I like the audio editing in reaper quite a bit.

I'm not a Mac guy but have been mastering for years (until recently retiring) on Wavelab.

Wavelab includes many in-depth features not found in other programs such as Sequoia like error analysis tasks before you send out the master. Another function helpful, especialy with a client present is Smart Bypass. While there are many other ways to achieve this, Smart Bypass eliminates any volume changes between the original track and the processed track thus allowing you to only hear the sonic changes without having a bias because of volume.

I can't imagine many missing features with WL as it's a very comprehensive program. However, the one missing aspect of WL7 is no user manual. WL6 included a 600+ comprehensive manual.

WL7 introduced many changes (many of them workspace and GUI changes) and I feel the lack of a manual has tarnished its solid reputation. I blame this on Steinberg.

Another great aspect of WL is you can correspond with PG, the creator via the web forum and he always replies within a day or so. That is great technical support.

Just a quick bump here... Now that some time has passed, what is everybody using for their 2-track sound editing?

I still can't find a program that does scrubbing the way that Peak did.

Thanks in advance,
Goobs

Not as deep as Peak , but Twisted Wave & Wave Editor are pretty decent editors .

TwistedWave, an Audio Editor for Mac

Looks like Wave Editor has morphed into this...

I'm not sure if this should be in this thread or not. I only discovered that Bias Peak was no more when I changed computers last week. Fortunately, Bias has their authorization servers back up and running after what I understand was a period where everybody's programs basically stopped working. I was able to deauthorize my old iMac and re-authorie the new iMac such that I was able to get all of the Bias software running again. I appreciate that I had better start in exploring a replacement, but I want to get this good news out since it seemed that many people were not aware of this.

I'll do one better, I was able to keep Bias on my iMac and authorize on my MacMini Server.

I'm just so damn use to Bias and I need to start looking at other editors myself.

But in the meantime, it's still Bias...
