1) converting the bolder sounds \"eclectic\" cd, some zones are way off key. the merge l/r switch doesn\'t make any diff. i really really need the s-converter to be solid if i am to continue with giga and recommend it to others. i just sold my e-iv and am not interested in another proprietary sample format; akai is the defacto \"vhs\" standard.
if s-converter is not rock-solid, there are other software samplers, like bitheadz...
2) the s-converter should really be easier to use. specifically, one should be able to select entire volumes or the entire disc to batch convert. some CDs have over a dozen volumes, which is a pain in the butt, esp. if you want volumes put in separate directories on your hard disk.
S-converter should be more succesful cos there are lots of users (like myself, for instance) who have huge collection of AKAI cd-roms and do not want to spend couple of 1000$ bills on buying same libraries in giga format?
Hey Dave, will there be some progress in GS 2.0 regarding the S-converter?
Also would be good to publish the list of AKAI cd-roms which do not convert properly (for now, I hope)
