Amok_'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good sampler"

rgc:audio sfz [Freeware]
SFZ is a sampler is a shareware software become free
- He reads SFZ and SF2 banks
- Standalone or VST
- 16 MIDI channels
- Quality setting and polyphony
Today, I think we can not get it in Cakewalk, but only his counterpart SFZ +

Windows XP Core Duo 1.66 2GB memory
- No problem in Cubase VST or samplitude
- Standalone, works with ASIO4ALL but very wrong with the driver for my sound card


Windows XP Core Duo 1.66 2GB memory
- Good performance, not very CPU-intensive


I do not use more because I kept SFZ + (also free)
If you do not want to apply effects to your SF2/SFZ, prefer lighter LinuxSampleur memory and CPU.

Well, no installer, just an extraction, so it takes. Dll, we copy the folder adns vst, roll my chicken. a note, and it's a very good point, a standalone version is included, convenient to play the piano or accordion soundfont live ... no manual (think save the web page RGC), the interface is basic, it's pretty clear, although I can imagine that a beginner can destabilize the ...


Well, it takes the ram, right, count three times the size of the soundfont, so actually, on small configs, to hang a bit. lower the quality is not much aid on my little machine, however, no big problems on my config. no doubt the software does it simply refuses to run if it is not enough ram, but I'm not in any case, this point is unclear.
it is also possible, even within a soundfont, assign different programs to different MIDI channels. nice and well seen. lack the possibility du'tiliser a sf per channel, but in my opinion, they keep it for the commercial version!

EDIT: one mode is now direct from disk, relieving much RAM and allow the loading of soundfonts enormous even on small machines!


Use for nearly two months, no problem, the quality depends on the quality of the soundfont of course, but the reader does not pose a problem, is transparent, and quite compatible with the different generations of soundfonts. the reduction of the quality a little influence on the CPU load, and loss of quality depending on the setting is not obvious.
I think a very good player soundfonts, which is playing with some basic parameters, but who does it well. for the price (lol), no hesitation, to provide access to a plethora of free sf available on the web. Just a caveat for small configs ....

This is a player soudfonts vst.
No major problems, it works well, easy to use.


Attention to small configs: on celeron400, 196Mo Ram, Extigy and fruityloops, this player is rather resource-intensive. A reserve for large configs so

Several playback quality, fashion (sf32, SF16, .... no idea what it matches), until more polyphony 64 notes I think. It seems to be very nice ...


I downloaded a few days ago, just to test it, just by eating cpu deu.
Fun little gadget, there are jokes that appear in the center

Basically, a lot of parameters, but fat consumption cpu read (you'll understand ...)
Note the easy access to banks, programs and channels.
It's free and it's here:


adonf's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Auncun problem. I prfre far the solution. Dll file placed in a VST installer that will come add unnecessary entries in the registry.
Regarding the manual, read the FAQ page on the site of rgc audio.


My PC is plutt 'rtro': PIII800, 512MB of RAM and it works well trs. Note that the SETTING THE resampling affects the quality becomes excellent max mode (see the trials, where it is fine for the competition). This only serves rglage nothing on soundfonts o there is no resampling (multi-samples with one sample per note, drum kit).

I first notice rdig to contradict Previous notice: the memory occupation is by no means suprieure three times the size of the soundfont. Using 32-bit mode, the CPU usage is less, but the samples occupy two times their size in memory. Conversely, in 16-bit, they take their place and no more. PR mode, only the program used is loaded (including whether program change in the short piece is a small risk dcrochement if latency is low), SF mode, the entire soundfont that is in memory.

Knowing this, I can without problem use the NS Kit 7 (~ 200MB) on my config with a lot of other VSTi in Tracktion.

Note that there is a direct from disk mode, but blew a few notes with soundfont heavy on my PC and with latency that I use (4.3m I think), so I prf re all into RAM.


How can less than 10 while the quality is a nickel price of zero!

Obviously missing:
- Multiple outputs (a really miss since I use it mostly for batteries, thanks to the famous NS kits also free)
- A filter, an envelope, an LFO
- Paramtrer part to its own samples.

But it seems that all this is in the paid version that is not trs CHRE either.
