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.
