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.

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!

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
