Translator™ 6 Hi-Tech Edition converts professional sampler formats.

Take any sample library and Translator™ 6 Hi-Tech Edition can convert all of its Programs, Instruments, or Samples - or an entire CD-ROM/Hard Drive - into another format that you can use directly with your desired sampler!

 Program parameter information is translated, as well as the samples and structure. Wavedata, keymaps, looping, effects - EVERYTHING. No program translates better. Translator™ 6 Hi-Tech Edition pays attention to the small details, faithfully replicating your sounds.

Translator™ 6 Hi-Tech Edition is a cross platform application - comes in macOS (works with Intel AND PPC) and Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP-compatible flavors, and can translate practically every professional format, from Kontakt, GigaStudio, EXS24, Falcon/MachFive, Structure, SFZ, Alchemy, Reason NN-XT, SoundFont, SampleCell, Kurzweil, Ensoniq, Akai, Emu, Roland, and many more. This enables musicians to use practically any sound for their sampler, no matter what format it is in.

Translator™ 6 Hi-Tech Edition has a huge destination format list, mostly encompassing all professional formats, like the ones above. For a complete format list, click here.

Translator™ 6 Hi-Tech Edition offers a huge amount of ancillary functions, such as special utilities of every sampler format. Of particular interest is the Reference Manager, which can relink and change the links to external samples from their program files. Other functions include the powerful AutoSampler and merging into existing Bank-type files, and much more.

Translator™ 6 Hi-Tech Edition also introduces multiple docking windows for excellent use of screen space. Also included is the new SimpleTranslation™ feature, where you simply drag a source file on the application Icon, and Translator automatically translates into your preferred format and location.

Now in it's 19th year in production, Translator™ 6 Hi-Tech Edition is THE industry standard when it comes to professional instrument conversion software.
