What is Translator Free?
Translator Free is the demo version of Chicken Systems’ instrument conversion software, the Translator series. It has limited functionality, of course, but it does offer users a taste of what the Translator software can do for them.
Translator is basically used to convert instrument sounds for professional musical usage. There are problems with building an instrument sample library that make programs of this type necessary: for instance, different data formats are used for various sampler products, and format compatibility issues are common among musicians collecting large sample databases. The program solves this problem by taking CD samplers using different formats and translating them—which means all of them, from the programs to the actual waveforms stored on the disc—into any format specified by the user. Whether the input format is Emu, Akai, Kurzweil or Roland, the Translator will read it and process it to generate a practically equal but different-format version.
The program’s UI is largely similar to the Explorer on Windows, which should make it easy enough to navigate for new users. It also supplies at least 2 conversion methods (for DOS formats and non-DOS ones).
