sforzando is a free SFZ player. Advanced sample hobbyists now have a powerful tool to experiment and share instruments without relying on proprietary formats.

It is also possible to drop SF2, DLS and acidized WAV files directly on the interface, and they will automatically get converted to SFZ 2.0. Then, they can be edited.

Powered by the ARIA Engine

sforzando relies on the same ARIA Engine that powers the ARIA Player and other products from Garritan and obviously Plogue chipsounds.

Like the other ARIA products, this player is available as a standalone and VSTi/AU/RTAS plugin on Windows or OS X and can run in either 32-bit or 64-bit.

Dedicated To Its Community

Plogue has deployed a forum dedicated to the SFZ format to help users support each other. All technical support for this product will be community driven at ARIAEngine.com.

Throughout the years, I’ve owned several guitar amps with built-in spring reverb, and I’ve always loved that twangy, metallic sound. Spring reverb in electric guitar amps works by taking the signal from a guitar’s pickups, amplifying it, passing it into one end of a long coil, picking it up at the other end, and then amplifying that signal some more. Because the internal coil is long and twisty, the sound waves don’t travel directly from one end of the reverb tank to another, but instead take their time and bounce around. This produces the characteristic reverb effect we’ve all come to know and love.

I’ve always wondered what a violin would sound like if it were subjected to a similar treatment. Of course, an acoustic violin is a bit more analog than an electric guitar – there is no pickup – which raises the question: what if you were to attach the spring directly to the body of the instrument you were trying to add reverb to? After seeing a Simon the Magpie Youtube video in which Simon attempted a similar experiment on his acoustic guitar, I knew exactly what I had to do. You can watch my experiment unfold in the video linked above.

(And yes, I’ve since replaced the slinky I stole from my son.)
