    Converting Roland 760 Sample CDs

    I\'m a Mac user with a Roland 760. I\'m considering taking the plunge to get a Gigasampler setup. I know nothing about PCs, and I\'ve got a lot of Roland sounds. I heard that there is some program that will convert these to Giga format. Does it work? Will I be able to safely sell my 760?? This is something I need to do right away, so that I can have the sounds ready when I get the setup. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

    I\'ve used CDxtract to convert a bunch of 770 programmes to .gigs.

    I had a couple of filter oddities, but nothing that wasn\'t easily fixed. Generally the sounds just came up fine in Giga.

    I\'m also getting Translator because it has the added bonus of converting whole performances, meaning I can have all the sounds from an old arrangement up in Giga very easily.

    The Giga version of Translator is on sale for $20 off at the moment - $59.95.

    Thanks so much for the URL and the tips...I was worried that these programs might only convert patches....performances would be great...now if they could only do volumes....
