Issue one is that when I try to load a patch, I get file not found for the corresponding sfz.
Issue two is that no sound is being produced by Black Mamba once I try to load the sfz's that come with it.
I'm sure everyone else is jamming away and enjoying this freebie, but It's not functioning here.
On a side note, all the soundfonts I own previously are SF2, and I rarely see any applications for SFZ. Why does Zampler choose to use SFZ? It's a minus AFAIK.
Excited to learn the trick to get it working anyway.

As for SFZ, well that's an open format; just a plain text file that anyone can use/modify/create etc. Soundfonts need special software (Awave? etc).
Plenty of quality SFZ players out there now too (zampler, alchemy player, dimension, shortcircuit...)

My bad, I got sound after i restarted VST Host. An unknown buggy plugin or user error caused the audio out to crash.
When I go to load the first patch "AR Bassgroove.fxp" I get the "file not found" error for it's corresponding SFZ. I'm thinking maybe the download got corrupted, Maybe I need to redownload Black Mamba.
I wish Zampler would load SF2 files. Phenome would be my go-to soundfont player but it was too unstable.

great sounds, also super filters, effects, and envelope controls.
one thing I find frustrating is that i cant seem to get the arp to alternate between two or more keys. in essence, i can't get it to play arpeggios. maybe it doesn't, I tried all the arp modes, correct me if i am wrong. it has a nice internal arp sequencer though.

@Fiddler: yes, you can tune it. Just use the CONSTANT source in the modmatrix and connect it with PITCH or whatever destination you want.

Nothing new here.
@Vaisnava: just load the .fxb soundbank file, then you can browser through the patches. Even the mousewheel is supported for changing patches, it's very comfortable
