Hello I am using Bitwig on Linux (LinuxMint 19).

I have seen in some forums that Bitwig's sampler (2.4 beta) can finally read the SFZ samples.

I gladly purchased the upgrade plan and installed the 2.4 beta version. By the way, when I load the SFZ samples from the sampler, some of the samples are working properly while others are not.

For example:

  1. Perfectly Works - VSCE Orchestra Sample
  2. Some samples do not work - Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra, Digital Sound Factory's SFZ sample
  3. No response - Salamander Grand Piano & Drumkit

Why does this difference occur?

It would be nice if Bitwig's sampler would 'properly' support the SFZ samples.

I have not had any luck with the Bitwig Sampler to read any SFZ files. Sure would be nice! The browser shows them as valid multisample files, but nothing happens when I try to load them. Hopefully this feature will come soon.

I have the exact same problem. I'm running Ubuntu and tried to load sfz files using bitwig 2.5 beta 2 as multisamples.

They show up in the browser but nothing happens when I try to load them.

Does anyone know if the Bitwig team is working on this?

Hi, looks to me that 2.5beta2 can load SFZ files in sampler, at least for VSCO SFZ library, actually the only one I try up to now. Just give some seconds after you load a file. Also looks at correct mapping because they do not run along the whole keyboard. For your info, I'm running on Ubuntustudio 18.10 with jack on Behringer XR18 48kHz. Yeah, a lot of unuseful info, I know... :-D Best regards, Fabrizio
