Audiofile Engineering Triumph

I’ve been a big user of Audiofile-Engineering's Triumph digital audio editor and mastering app since the demise of Bias Inc. Peak Pro. I was looking for an app that would allow me to edit, master and export DDP files for replication as well as any format audio file that a client might want. I needed it to be OSX native and completely bullet proof. Triumph fit the bill and has totally delivered.....even in ways that Peak never did. Well worth checking out.
