Combines the esteemed Translator™, Constructor™, and Instrument Manager™ software products into one bundle, includes an Integrated Interface application to do all three, and additionally adds extra functions into each program to facilitate interoperability.

SamplerTools™ is not simply all three Chicken Systems products in one package. It sports a combined interface where you can work on all three types of operations: Conversion, Building, and Managing. You can also use the full-scale interfaces of each program, which (only with SamplerTools) feature expanded functionality built in that takes greater advantage of the other programs.

For example, in Instrument Manager there is a Bank Builder. In the regular version it can only make Banks out of the same file type. However, in the SamplerTools package the Bank Builder is extended to allow different file types. Since Translator is available, it uses that technology to do conversions when it is building the Bank file.

If you already own one or more of the products included in SamplerTools, or if you own any other Chicken Systems or Rubber Chicken products, there may be special pricing for you. Please see the options on this page to see the crossgrade pricing.
