The UI is very old school, but this is a pretty powerful editing environment especially for older OS 7-8 systems. It's by Stafano Daino, who was poached to develop Spark XL for TC Works, and now develops DSPQuattro. Especially fun back in the day was using the "raw data" import to render any files from my system as audio, and then use the other tools to shape them into noisy samples.

ETA: The "field of buttons" GUI reminds me of TurboSynth, which would make a great desert island combo with DSoundPro.

i use the OS9 version of DSPQuattro on my home machine. Only sampler-transfer app I know of that supports multiple SCSI busses. (useful when your ATA/SATA controller identifies as SCSI bus 0)
Stefano is still developing the OSX version and is very friendly to chat with. :)
G4/MDD 1.42 (9), G4/GB 500DP (X), Beige G3 400 (upgraded) (9), PBG4Ti 1Ghz (X), PBG3WS 300 (9)

got my mind on my scsi and my scsi on my mind

This guy is my fucking hero, I have been using DSP Quattro since Logic bailed on Waveburner, he is a monster genius and error-checks his code to the point that it is fast and rock solid.  And yes, he actually answers his emails.  Yes, as stated, Back in the day, Spark was his baby and his finger prints are all over it;  I am guessing he did the bulk of the Spark team work.
