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!
