Peak is a digital audio editing application for the Macintosh, used primarily for stereo/mono recording, sample editing, creating loops, and CD mastering. It is commonly used by amateur and professional audio and video editors, mastering engineers, musicians, sound designers, artists, educators, and hobbyists.[1][2]

It was published by the now defunct company BIAS Inc. in several editions, with varying levels of features.

Peak differs from Digital audio workstation-type audio editing applications in that most of its editing is done directly at the file level, without having to first create a project and import the audio to be edited into it.

Peak can be assigned to many DAW-type applications as a supplemental external sample editor. When used this capacity, it is similar to having Peak's editing capabilities available as a plug-in, within the other application.[3]

BIAS Inc. ceased all business operations as of June, 2012.
