Squinky Labs is Releasing our 27th module: SFZ Player. It’s a polyphonic sampler that can play back SFZ Instruments. There are a lot of excellent sample libraries in SFZ format, and most of them are free. There are many very good orchestras, pianos, drums, drum machines, and so on.
Most SFZ Instruments (sample libraries) will take advantage of SFZ Player’s support for many velocity layers, round-robin and random sample assignment.
One might assume that a polyphonic sample would have to use a lot of CPU, but it doesn’t.
The manual has information about finding SFZ instruments. It’s here: SquinkyVCV/sfz-player.md at main · squinkylabs/SquinkyVCV · GitHub
In many ways SFZ Player is a pretty conventional sample, but it does have one unusual feature – you can do through zero linear FM using samples as the carrier.
Like our other 26 modules, SFZ player is free and available in the VCV library. And source code is always available in our github.
