I have bought Chicken Systems Translator Pro.  Never again will I deal 
with the chicken.

It is the most crash-prone Windows program I've ever seen sold as a 
retail product.  Clicking on almost anything causes it to crash hard. 
Their tech support is totally useless.

I bought it because it's supposed to able to mount and work with Akai 
volumes from Windows, but it's so unstable that in reality you can 
hardly get any actual work done with it.  This is pre-alpha software 
being sold for money -- avoid!
