Default Samplecell Users Front End?

Any help is much appreciated... I would've posted in the SampleCell section, but it's essentially dead.

Hi... I've just added a samplecell II card to complement my others (mainly drum triggering purposes).

My question to you power users... Which program should I use as a "front end" to get all my AUDIO sample CD's into the right format. I'm undergoing a large transformation of all my drum libraries (unfortunately all on audio only CD's) into the right format for Samplecell.

Do I use something like Toast Audio Extractor to convert all into SDII files, or PEAK? I'll be xfering 1000's of hits, so I need something fairly intuitive but deep enough for serious cataloging.

Also, I'm a little confused as to whether I should be converting everything to Stereo SDII files (for other future uses too) or to split SDII files?

Thanks in advance for any insights...

Gallery Samplesearch. Long in the tooth (like Samplecell!), but unique and powerful!

Thanks Bryan. I checked out there web site and the software looks pretty powerful.

One follow up if I may... Should I be converting individual hits/pads to SDII STEREO files or SPLIT stereo files?

Make stereo files.
They're easier to handle and edit. Also there's less chance that the channels get out of phase during playback.

The last time I transferred samples from an audioCD to a HDD library i simply recorded the whole CD to two tracks in PT. Then it was easy to create and name a region for each sample (bd01.L, bd01.R etc). When that's done I just selected all and exported the regions as 16 bit stereo files.
