Professional Sampler Disk and File Format Convertor

Translator™ converts professional sampler formats
Take any sampler CD-Rom/disk and Translator™ can convert one or any of it's Samples, or Presets, or Banks - or the entire CD-ROM/disk - into another sampler format that you can use directly with that sampler!

Program parameter information is translated as well as the samples and structure - wavedata, keymaps, looping, effects - EVERYTHING POSSIBLE.

* No program translates better. Translator™ pays attention to the small details, faithfully replicating your sounds.
* Translator™ is also available in "Special Editions," supporting a single destination sampler.
* For the most complete information on Translator™, please keep your eyes on this site, and join our mailing list.

-Translator is the ONLY program that writes real, authentic, exact .gig files, ones designed to be read into Giga without any rewriting etc. within the editor. Translator write regular files, not irregular ones as other programs do
-Translator writes exact v2.0 files, while others write only version 1
-Translator can write not only .gig files, but Giga Performances as well. This enables mimicking of Akai Multis and Roland Performances
-Translator compensates for Giga's restriction on mono-or-stereo Regions by intelligently combining or splitting, also can pre-determine mono or stereo as the above
-Compensates for non-exponential Layers and Dimensions accurately
-Writes condensed .gig files and does not include residual information
- Writes Instruments into single .gig files whenever possible, instead of splitting them, does not write unnecessary folders
-" Bulk Convert" Roland option virtually eliminates replicated samples from Roland CD's or disks
- Respects Giga's 128 Instrument limit and writes a minimum of multiple .gig files if necessary without sample replication (common issue with SoundFont->Giga translations)
- Extracts Instruments into Groups or individually, extracts samples and imports them as well.
