Why not the Universal .sfz import in Presence?

Why not the Universal .sfz import in Presence?

Polyphone is hit and miss whether it will convert .sfz to sf2 for Presence import, and just destroying a Friday night thinking my .sfzs could be crowbar'ed to work in a Studio One project.

That's a big oversight me thinks. Sure I have some Xylophone soundfonts from 1999 and they're probably 80 kb. But no realistic Kontakt instrument will load unless that too is older than a decade, and I'm getting kind of cross

Any ideas that are good? SFZ player that remembers path or a converter to a S1-friendly format? I used to like sForzando but can't remember if that's evil. Must be if I can't remember.

-update- fine I can use sForzando, but Presence is looking so long in the tooth it's a bruised apple for Studio One.

It looks like Sample One XT has most of what I was looking for. You know just the features list there's a lot to learn about Studio One and I'm having the time of my life, and while under terrible stress in the background!

-disclaimer- No, Sample One XT doesn't import .sfz but I'm just saying, my home made simple/sample instruments can be made easy enough from scratch.
