1. Sforzando

Sforznado VST Plugin

The SFZ Format is widely accepted as the open standard to define the behavior of a musical instrument from a bare set of sound recordings.

Being a royalty-free format, any developer can create, use and distribute SFZ files and players for either free or commercial purposes. So when looking for flexibility and portability, SFZ is the obvious choice.

That’s why it’s the default instrument file format used in the ARIA Engine.
