I tried zipping a folder of samples and changing the file type as per the manual. They were recognized but did not produce any sound. I then tried just copying the files to a folder and adding the extension to the unzipped folder and they were recognized and now produce sound. What am I doing wrong?

Perhaps the ZIP format isn't compatible. Try using no compression or send me the files to contactus@discodsp.com and I will check what's going in.

I think the folder may have been too big. I split it and now it works. I did find a sample that does not produce a Padsynth sound. I will send that one to you.

I checked and all the samples re-synthesize properly.

Are there any tips for better PAD sounds?
* Types of sounds that work better (long, short, percussive, etc.)?
* A specific key?
* Mono?
* 16bit?
Etc.

The beauty of PAD re-synthesis is that there are not better or worse sounds. What you can do for a better result is using the full render mode instead ECO for multi-octave SFZ output. Edit Menu > Config > PADSynth ECO mode and disable that.
