BIAS announced that it has updated its entire product line for Mac OS X 10.2.3 at music trade show, NAMM 2003, yesterday.

The company's products include: Peak 3.2, Deck 3.5.1, Vbox 1.2, SuperFreq 1.1 and new addition, SoundSoap, an audio-restoration solution.

BIAS CEO Steve Berkley said: "We?re excited to announce new updates of our products that take advantage of the latest version of Apple?s latest operating system. Mac OS X 10.2.3 introduces tremendous improvements."

Apple has introduced a number of improvements for audio users, including better support for audio software and hardware, particularly for USB audio hardware.

SoundSoap is a new digital-audio signal processing tool for Mac OS X and Windows XP. It is a pro-quality noise-reduction solution. Its interface consists of two knobs, which can reduce unwanted hiss, room noise, rumble, electrical hum, and other background noises from almost any digital-media file. It's available as a VST plug-in for OS X, but a standalone version will be released later this year.

Mac OS X-native, Peak 3.2 is an audio-editing, processing and mastering application that now supports QuickTime 6. Improvements in this version include: duplicate commands, user-definable contextual menus, and enhanced WAVE-file support. It supports Apple's CoreAudio standard, which means its compatible with most audio hardware.

Deck 3.5 is a multitrack digital-audio workstation for Mac. New features include key professional features such as OMF-file importing and 5:1-channel surround mixing. It also supports CoreAudio.

Vbox 1.2 is a multi-channel control environment (graphic equalizer) for OS X. It can combine, repatch and mix multiple VST plug-ins. It integrates into any VST host application, including: Peak, Deck, Cubase and others.

SuperFreq is a mastering-quality 10-band parametric graphic equalizer.
