I haven't tried this yet but on the surface it looks interesting.

SFZ Designer

It's an SFZ GUI editor that provides a visual way of mapping samples to the keyboard and editing opcodes. I thought I'd post it here in case anyone finds it useful.

Here's a short YouTube video demo.



Yeah, I'm aware of this one. I've tried it on a couple of occasions but could never really get the hang of its workflow. It feels kind of like a WYSIWYG sample editor designed by someone who's never seen a WYSIWYG sample editor. Plus that it wouldn't load ANY of my existing sfz files, so I dismissed it pretty quickly.

Edit: obviously I didn't try it with ALL my existing sfz files. But out of maybe a dozen of randomly picked ones, it loaded none.
Hey,
Sorry for bumping it, but it seems like the site is gone and now i can't get it anywhere. Would you be so kind to share it if you have? Or any similiar thing or tip just for GUI sfz editing?

I checked but I don't have a copy of it. I've always just used a text editor for SFZ files. By the time I found this editor, I had already completed my sample library and didn't need it.
Here's an alternative:

I can't say whether it's good. I think I played around with it ages ago (probably around 2004...).

Also, I'm not sure the one below will do, but it does say "Save your instruments in the sf2 format and export them as sfz or in the compressed sf3 format", so you may see whether it works for you.
