Notes: It is a recent development over the last 10 or so years to "encrypt" audio samples to enforce a copy-protection scheme. Since developers started making their own samplers, they use this connection to allow only licensed users to play their sounds. If it was possible to translate these samples to other formats, it would defeat their copy-protection schemes. Thus, Translator cannot and will not be able to convert out of these formats, as we respect the developers intent.
