Good point, but I doubt those libraries need to go to SFZ at this time. Anyone who enjoyed using EXS in Logic PC probably went to Kontakt (the comparable sampler) at that time and converted them there.

I don't mean to be dour on the utility, and assuming that its for piracy is extreme, but you can't ignore that assertion either.

Hi vonRed. Thank you for your initiative.
I am a Mac user but i've encountered an issue. When trying to install exs2sfz with
the "python exs2sfz.py install" command that is suggested on the python homepage
i get a syntax error message.

For those who doubt the utility of this product, let me tell you my story.
I was a Logic user and I bought a couple of EXS packs off Ebay.
I've switched to back to my old love Ableton Live in the autumn and of course
I tried converting those EXSs to Ableton's Sampler format. The problem is
Sampler doesen't convert them properly (volume is at -26db) and it has become
a hassle to open up each patch and correct the volume prior to auditioning it.

Here is where EXS2SFZ comes in. I really need it to convert those EXSs to SFZ
because Sampler does a wonderful job when converting SFZ.

This sound great, unfortunately I have a problem right with the 1st EXS I tried to convert:
It is a Clavinet from the default sounds that came from Emagic back when they were releasing for windows :scared:

Code: Select all (#)
S:\01-Piano>exs2sfz.py "Clavinet ECO.exs" clavine.sfzt
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "S:\01-Piano\exs2sfz.py", line 610, in <module>
    exs.convert(sys.argv[2])
  File "S:\01-Piano\exs2sfz.py", line 467, in convert
    sequences = self.build_sequences()
  File "S:\01-Piano\exs2sfz.py", line 416, in build_sequences
    for group in self.groups:
  File "S:\01-Piano\exs2sfz.py", line 406, in groups
    len(self.objects)
  File "S:\01-Piano\exs2sfz.py", line 375, in objects
    new_object = EXSChunk.parse(self, offset)
  File "S:\01-Piano\exs2sfz.py", line 36, in parse
raise RuntimeError("Encountered an unknown chunk signature! signature is 0x{1:08X}".format(sig))
IndexError: tuple index out of range

Any idea what I can do?

Thanks a lot for sharing this,
