You can add them to PG C:\Program Files\PG Music Inc\Band-in-a-Box Sounds/SFZ Library Band-in-a-Box Sounds.bank.xml
then they will show in the list in Sforzando.

Hello there!

I do not succeed in doing that! Basically the needed files are .sfx whereas the downlloaded ones are in mp3 format, it does not work... Do I oversee something???

Sorry I thought they were already sfz.
Get http://vis.versilstudios.net/sfzconverter.html

You can create different instruments with the different articulations or you can create keyswitches see Here,
so sort the different articulation of each instrument into separate folders first.
you need to save these 2 text files to FolderToSFZ_v060\NotationDictionaries as they have "s" for sharp instead of "#" in the filename.

These make great sounds for me if I convert them to .wav files and load them into the Grace sampler. Not sure if I have enough patience to build a full blown SFZ instrument, but for a simple instrument to do simple phrases, it sounds like you have a cello player in your living room! You can hear the freaking bow. Over top of a backing part done in sample library player like Garritan people might be fooled into thinking I hired an orchestra if I try hard enough.

Cool!

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190
