BIAS has announced it has begun shipping Peak Pro 5.2, the Universal version of its audio editing software for Mac OS X 10.4 on both PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs. While Peak Pro 5 required an included USB key in order to operate, version 5.2 now utilizes a non-hardware based method of copy protection, offering greater flexibility for customers interested in retaining the use of their USB ports for other peripherals. For Peak Pro 5 customers who prefer the USB key, version 5.2 retains this compatibility. New retail editions of Peak LE 5.2 (US$129), Peak Pro 5.2 ($599), and Peak Pro XT 5 ($1199).
