Hey guys. They are discussing this on the VSL Giga board, but wanted to get other current GS3 user's feedback on whether or not this application is included with GS3 Orchestra, as I can't really believe what I'm hearing.
From the Tascam Website:
"Translator Giga Edition, by Chicken Systems, is the world's most complete sample translation software application. Translator converts all of the common sample formats like Akai®, E-mu®, Kurzweil® and Roland®. It even reads obscure formats like Peavey®, Fairlight®, Yamaha® and Ensoniq® - more than any other conversion program. Translator Giga Edition is included with GigaStudio 3.0 Orchestra, and is also available for all other versions of GigaStudio."
Having this included was one of the features I was looking forward to with Orchestra Edition...
I will be very dissapointed if it is not included! At $79 or so, it is about 13% of Gigastudio's $599.99 price. Think I can get a 13% refund on my upgrade expense?
