Transfer Station (from Interval Music)

TransferStation's External Volume mode enables the use of the Mac's CD-ROM drive as a storage device for external samplers. Users can now access foreign /non-Mac CD-ROM volumes without the Mac automatically ejecting the CD-ROM media.
TransfertStation supports high-speed SCSI sample dumps to/from samplers

TransferStation includes built-in, fast SCSI drivers for sample dumps to/from most samplers. No MIDI is required!
supported Samplers include:
Akai S1000/S1100-series
Akai S2000/S2800/S3000/S3200-series
Emu Emulator 4, E4K, e64, ESI-32
Kurzweil K2000 and K2500
Peavey SXII and DPM-SP
Roland S-760 (the S760 requires a short MIDI message in addition to SCSI)
Both mono and stereo SMDI files are supported, and TransferStation will automatically merge and unmerge Akai and Roland files to stereo AIFF format. The user can access the sampler at the lowest sample level, no Programs required. Bulk sample dumps are supported.

TransferStation includes Audio CD controls for monitoring audio via the Mac's CD-ROM drive. There are also key commands for auditioning files directly from external volumes, Audio CD, Akai and Roland SCSI/CD-ROM, and direct-to-sampler memory through the Mac's sound output.

TransferStation saves and loads in standard AIFF and Sound Designer II file format and is compatible with these third-party applications:

Passport Alchemy
Jupiter Systems Infinity
Digidesign Sound Designer II
Macromedia SoundEdit 16 and Deck II
Tom Erbe's Sound Hack
Adobe Premiere or other applications supporting AIFF or SDII files.
You can route your auditioning function thru the Macintosh's built-in sound or thru your Pro Tools, Audiomedia, or NuMedia cards. Sound Manager 3.0 is supported and is thus compatible with Sound Manager 3.0-complient sound cards (ProTools, Audiomedia II, etc). Desktop Drag 'n Drop auditioning of Mac AIFF files is supported.
 New in TransferStation v2.1!

Support for Akai S3000 and S2000 SCSI Volumes. Browse, audition and import samples directly to your Macintosh.
New 32-bit Digital Filter for flattening Roland Pre-Emphasis curves. Works automatically in-place when importing from Roland SCSI volumes or sending and receiving to/from the S760. The filter is accurate to within +.86 dB of the Roland's emphasis curve and uses noise-shaping for the highest possible quality.
Exports Sample-name Texts list suitable for importing into your favorite word processor or spreadsheet. Includes Sample lengths and rates.
Imports from external Hard disks, Syquests, CD-ROMs:
Sample files from Akai S1000/S2000/S3000-series SCSI volumes (with selectable stereo merging of -L and -R chans to stereo AIFF or SDII).
Partial and Sample files from Roland S700-series SCSI volumes (with selectable stereo merging).
user-selecable tracks/track segments from audio CDs.
Auditions thru the Macintosh:
mono and stereo AIFF files directly from Mac Hard Disk
mono and stereo files directly from sampler memory
mono or stereo files from Akai and Roland HD, CD-ROM, etc, Volumes
stereo audio tracks from audio CD.
Bulk Importing, Stereo-merging and Auditioning is supported.
