A terrible software mess. Crashes, freezes, does not see all the drives. Bought this to move Kurzweil samples from computer to floppy. No luck. This was wasted money.

A waste of money... even in 2018. I have not managed to get the Korg Translator version to make a good sample even once. It crashes every two minutes. Not to mention, this program has an archaic form of copy protection. You need to wait ages for a cd to arrive in the mail......who does that?

Don't waste your money... this developer needs to go out of business, instead of continually ripping people off.

Good day everyone after reading a lot of negatives and positives from kvr site about translator and chicken system products if they are offering help and a phone number to assist you I'm willing to communicate if something fails from here on with my product we somtimes fail to call and depend so much on texting call the company direct to get that help they are offering I removed my negative post to give chicken system a chance I will go through any kind of issues and if I do get some i will call them direct and get them resolved as far as my use with translator it's been doing so far good there are some glitches but it could be occurring from MS updates, I don't know if the company has announced it yet but if anyone has Translator there is an update available, there were a bit of glitches when running the installation might be related to Windows 10 thank you and have a wonderful day everyone, and my apologies to Chicken System if I had any negative experiences in the past with you guys cheers!!.
