There are few applications that use either SEED or miniSEED volume and converts it to SAC or ASCII. Conversion from SEED to datelessSEED, from SEED to miniSEED and from miniSEED to SEED are possible as well. Resulting SAC file contains sensitivity information derived from source file (if available) as well as location details. Each trace from the source will be saved as separate file as ''. Only in the 'SEED to miniSEED converter' application the User may chose to write result to single output file.
