Absolutely fantastic, community-based sampling project, mostly (but not only) all kinds of sampled pianos (grand pianos, upright pianos, felt pianos, electric pianos etc).

https://www.pianobook.co.uk/library

Maybe 80% of the submitted libraries are provided in Kontakt format, with a few being provided in EXS24 (Logic, usable with free TX16wx) and very few with .sfz mappings.

Anyone who wants to support the project and help to create mappings (or convert existing Kontakt patches) in .sfz format, for the non-Kontakt users among us?

Here is their forum: https://piano.community/

And here are some examples of great Pianobook.co.uk libraries that are currently Kontakt only:

Are you on the SFZformat Discord? Someone there is working on an SFZ automapper which could probably do this stuff quickly if it can deal with the way the files are named.

Thanks! Not yet a member. Currently I do some "digital detox" (to use a fancy term for reducing mindless online content consumption), so I've limited my online time to a few hours per week. Maybe you can bring up this topic if you are a member of that Discord group?

Okay, while I did not find the SFZ Discord using Discord's query engine, I found the link in another post of yours and joined the crew. Thanks!

Yup, and Mat's back, seems like this should work...
