Randy, following your generous Kalimba sharing with us, i tryed to make something that works with ARIA. I really liked the Kalimba
Well, this one is not so nice sampled like the Kalimba, but for the ones wanting to know how sfz works can be interesting. There are some notes out-of-tune, that i will try to fix if anyone like how it works.
Basicly, it has two layers for the Sustained sound, and 4 keyswitches:
C2- Sustained - non looped
D2- Vibrato (kind of)
E2- staccato (kind of)
F2- and an articulation that i called "tro", im not sure how it`s called.
The keyswithches are from C2 to F2 (im not sure how to use the option for LABEL the Keyswitches "sw_label" yet).
The natural range is from C4 to A5, but i extended it from C3, but it will not sound so nice there.
You can use the ModWheel to controll the volume in a range of 12db.
You need to unzip the folder anywhere keeping the folder structure, and then import the sfz file with the name "ARIA". (the other sfz file works with the free sfz vsti)
Here is a little mp3 i made so you can hear how it sounds played from a midi file:
greensleeves mp3 recorder sfz.
(it uses the 4 keyswitches)
And here you can download it:

Feel free to modify and use it like you want and suggest anything you think can be done. If anyone knows about the "sw_label" opcode, i would like to know. I will ask in the plogue forum.
Chad has helped with the keyswitche labeling. Now you can view the name of the keyswitch you are using. Thanks Chad!
You only need to download this file and put in the same folder where are the original sfz files of the recorder. Thats one of the wonderfull reasons because you could love SFZ: you can modify how things works and there isnt need to upload all the wav files. Just sharing a little text file is enough.
