SEC filing

The SEC filing is a financial statement or other formal document submitted to the U. S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Public companies, certain insiders, broker-dealers are required to make regular SEC filings. Investors and financial professionals rely on these filings for information about companies they are evaluating for investment purposes. Many, but not all SEC filings are available online through the SEC's EDGAR database; the most filed SEC forms are the 10-K and the 10-Q. These forms are composed of four main sections: The business section, the F-pages, the Risk Factors, the MD&A; the business section provides an overview of the Company. The F-pages contain the financial statements which are either audited or reviewed by an independent auditor; the Risk Factors contain a list of all of the potential risks. While the MD&A contains a narrative about the financial results of the company; this narrative is accompanied by management's expectations for the upcoming year. Other filings are required with respect to offerings by private companies.

Making Waves (software)

Making Waves is computer software designed to produce professional quality audio from basic Windows multimedia PCs. This application was among the first of the 16-bit digital sequencers that evolved from the MS-DOS WAV trackers of the Eighties to become the digital audio workstation software available today including Steinberg Cubase, Pro Tools and ACID Pro. Making Waves enabled a small community of independent artists to use existing hardware to record, sample and render their own original work creating professional-quality audio with a modest investment of less than $100; this same dynamic user community played a significant role in the application's development, suggesting program revisions and performing extensive beta testing. These users were all organized and mentored by Stephen John Steele, the original programmer and developer of Making Waves as well as a founding director of Perceptive Solutions, Spacehead Systems and Making Waves Software Limited; the application's interface integrates a sequencer, mixer and wave editor compatible with Musical Instrument Digital Interface, Virtual Studio Technology and some DirectX plugins, the program's key feature is live mixing of MIDI input with VST and digital samples including Yamaha XG sound libraries.

Making Waves Studio renders mp3, wav and MIDI files or can be purchased as an inexpensive audio-only wav sequencer. The early commercial success of this embryonic digital audio workstation was brief and seemed to build on two significant events, the release of a stable graphical user interface version and the production of a "hit" record and album by an independent artist. First, with the release of the 32-bit Making Waves Studio version in April 1998, Perceptive Solutions had a product compatible with the Windows 95 GUI; the version provided a number of audio features never before or since consolidated at that price point. Next, Daniel Bedingfield's number one UK single was created with Making Waves and released in November 2001, his number two first album of the same name, Gotta Get Through This, soon followed. Making Waves began to gain sales and acceptance within the digital audio community as an affordable professional audio platform and VST host, a complete "recording studio-in-a-box"."

While still available for sale, Making Waves lacks a 64-bit version, is not approved for use on Windows 8 and is no longer being maintained following the death of the original developer in 2011.
