Mildon releases SFZ Designer (open beta)


Mildon has released a beta version of SFZ Designer, a free visual sample mapping tool for Windows.

Mildon SFZ Designer

SFZ Designer is a cutting-edge sample mapping tool optimized for multiple velocity and round-robin layers. It features a streamlined workflow, assisted opcode entry, draggable key-range and velocity splits-points, and more. It supports all SFZ 1.0 opcodes (full 2.0 support coming soon) and directly exports to .sfz format.

I recommend using SFZ Designer in tandem with Plogue Sforzando for quick previewing. When you re-export your .sfz file all the changes are instantly applied in Sforzando. This is a feature in the player.

SFZ Designer features

  • True visualization of groups (key-range > velocities > samples).
  • Draggable key-range and root key selection over the pianoroll.
  • Draggable velocity layer split-points (up to 8 velocity layers).
  • Supports multiple round-robin samples per velocity layer.
  • Tune, Pan, and Volume controls for each sample.
  • Transpose, Pan, and Volume controls for each group.
  • Assisted opcode entry with auto-suggest and validation.
  • Advanced opcode apply-to-all options.
  • Group cloning and structure cloning.
  • Accepts currently unsupported opcodes.
  • Project-level Amplifier DAHDSR controls.
  • Global Override at project/group/region-levels.
  • Full support for SFZ 1.0 opcodes (soon SFZ 2.0 support).
  • Export-As-SFZ with auto-conversion of sample paths to relative paths.

SFZ Designer is available for download for Windows. A beta for Linux and OSX will be available as well.
