    Anybody work with this thing? I just got it and am running my mixes though it- I can tweak them with eq to sound better but haven't been able to get them louder- I got some demos I would like to send out with a little more volume but don't really want to pay for mastering as these are demo songs and if the songs are picked up they will get rerecorded anyway... any help is appreciated :D

    yes i also use peak
    u can use vst's and AU-plugins in this program.. so load up a limiter or a compressor.
    u can also try to use the command 'change gain' or 'normalize'
    but i dont recommend using normalize untill the end.. that is, after you have done all eq-ing, compressions and stuff. 'normalize' also dithers the sound, and i dont believe the dithering is good in bias peak.. so use 'change gain' if you still wanna keep it unnoisy and wanna work further with the audio

    I tried the vst limiter and it didn't sound too good to my ears- the sqwz compresor and the eq were nice- thanks for the normalizing tip!

    maintiger, youre probably talking about the vst-plugins that come with Peak. yah they're MDA-plugins and some of 'm sound good. most sound a little off. i dunno
    the sqeeuz sounds pretty good!\anyway, you gotta use other vst's than MDA cuz theyre not exactly what i'd call goodsounding indeed!

    i use peak 4 as well, yeah, some mda or good some are crap, i use TC bundle as well, the limiter will squeze pretty much the hell out of your stuff, also i am a big fan of the digitalfishphones bundle specially the compressor (know as AU!!) also smartelectronix make some good free stuff... (they have a decent multiband compressor for example...)
    and obviously waves... if you want to pay a lot, but get some serious plugs...

    yeah i really love them, not essentially 'clean' but that's what i like i love there sonic character!! THEY HAVE SOME SOUL...
    also check out smartelectronix mdsp plugs there are m/s plugs, can't say much yet, but i am trying them out right now. so i will hear.
    i like the smartelectronix multiband, if used subtle... too
    but i guess you know how to apply.....
