sforzando - SFZ Player
sforzando is a simple but powerful SFZ Player.

sforzando is a highly SFZ 2.0 compliant sample player. Advanced sample hobbyists now have a powerful tool to experiment and share instruments without relying on proprietary formats. sforzando only has one instrument slot; no fancy UI, effects or mixers. Every tweak needs to be done at the SFZ file level, no cheating!

sforzando is also a name given for a sudden change in music dynamics which, in musical notation, is represented by the “sfz” symbol.

sforzando relies on the same ARIA Engine that powers the ARIA Player and other products from Garritan and obviously Plogue chipsounds. This engine has been built from the “ground up” on the SFZ spec, and not as an afterthought.

The window focus in Windows 10 is a pain. When I tried to open .sf2 file, it stuck a dialog about the conversion behind the main window and refused to bring it to the front (including with alt-tab, win-tab &c). Plays back OK, but selecting the patch the imported SF is also painful. You have to navigate a (literally) 5-layer menu to get to the patch labels.

Of course Sforzando also accepts soundfont files, right?

Yes. It converts soundfonts into SFZ-files. All samples are then stored into one large audio-file
