    Being very bored to edit samples on the small screen of my E4K, i want to transfer them( quick'n'easy ) to my B/W G3 350 -via SCSI?- do the editing (cut & .....) & back to the EMU .
    BTW ,I also use PT 24 .

    Which program would help me best ?

    Peak supports many samplers. It's quite east to get around, and has been around. It's tried and true.

    Sorry to jump in. I've got Spark for several months now, and I'm not happy at all . Is very "slow", even on a G4, and I was more pleased with WaveLab on PC. Just my tought.

    Amighetti Ronnie ,
    just downloaded & tested demos of Peak & Spark .
    I liked Peak intuitively more , but i guess Spark has more to offer...
    Don't know what to buy yet
    Spark costs less, too
    Not sure yet

    Hey Marc
    Here's a huge vote for Peak. Great program talks to almost anything and a doddle to use... And if you are a Pro Tools user you can access all your TDM plugs and treat them within Peak.

    Simon :D

    Simon,
    you can also access all your TDM plugs and treat them within Spark .
    It's also less $$$......
    Did you try a demo of Spark , to compare the two ?
    Anybody who uses both ?

    Hey Marc
    No I didn't I'm ashamed to say. I got a trial version of Peak and it just kinda felt good to me. At the time I wasn't running Pro Tools I was mainly doing my programming in Logic and recording everything to Adat via a board. I was just really pleased that I could use premier plugs in Peak and that it would communicate seamlessly with my CD3000xl. No more squinting at that little screen... Have you tried both? I was thinking of upgrading my current 2.1tdm later this month but if Spark is really cool I would very much like to give it a spin.

    Simon :D

    Simon,
    I tried both , but the 7 days of being able to use Spark were shortened by a serious flu .
    Honestly, i liked Peak more intuitively, but then i could use it for a longer time .
    Did you already tried D-SoundPRO ? It's shareware ...you can download it here http://www.d-soundpro.com/
    But the recent 3.5.1 version seems to have a problem with my USB Mac, "sampler is not responding" while Peak & Spark worked fine .
    But , "Version 4.0 available very soon !!!"
    Anyway i'm interested in which program you (or anybody else) PREFER !

    Greetings
    Marc
