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.

http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=419866#Post419866
if you can't get it worked out let me know.

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!

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
