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.

Hey Spryx.

I was so close into buying there product again under a different account just to let you know i had a terrible experience with there product since I'm banned now from buying anything from there site since I asked for a refund just for a product that had too many flaws, the software I used was called constructor it just kept crashing on me the dev was helpful as much as he could but never got around solving the issue dam thing kept crashing so many times, so i gave up and ask for my money back but still don't understand why banned me for something that does not work very well??just giving my opinion that all but i feel for you my friend my suggestion is use Awave Studio and Sample Converter these are so far the best tools to use I have used both and I do recommend, Sample Converter is a bit old but still does the job excellent cheers!.
