sforzando is a free, 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.
