BIAS, Inc.(NAMM Expo Booth #6424) is pleased to report that Peak Pro 5, the fifth generation of its award-winning professional stereo recording, editing, mastering and delivery software, offers one of the highest quality resampling algorithms in the industry. After testing eleven audio applications and comparing their results, Peak Pro 5's sample rate conversion proves to be one of the very best on the market.
"Sample rate conversion, also known as resampling, is one of the most important yet least understood aspects of the final audio processing stage," said Steve Berkley, CEO and President for BIAS, Inc. "With many professionals recording at high sample rates, fidelity is often lost at the final processing stage due to sample rate conversion that results in aliasing, artifacts, and added noise. Since many users depend on Peak for professional processing, BIAS prioritized the development of an advanced real time and offline resampling algorithm for Peak Pro 5."
Eleven Applications Tested
A white paper detailing the results of testing that compared resampling results from eleven audio applications to that of Peak Pro 5, is available on the BIAS Web site. Instructions for reproducing the tests along with test files enabling other interested parties to see for themselves how the results were obtained are included. The graphs in the white paper illustrate the varying results and demonstrate that Peak Pro 5 offers one of the highest-quality software based sample rate conversion algorithms.
