    Hi carl,
    You can now load and convert from exs and sfz files in DecentSampler itself.

    1/. Right click on FILE…

    2/. Select Developer Tools and then select Import EXS or SFZ File…

    3/. Navigate to the folder where the .exs or .sfz file is and double-click on it to load it.

    4/. It will show that “errors were encountered”, ignore that, just click on any part of the GUI to hide the message.

    5/. Now right click on FILE > Developer Tools > Save preset… and click on the Save button.

    6/. Go to FILE… and select load and locate the file .dspreset that you have just saved and double-click on it to load.

    7/. In the dialogue box that opens, click on Locate Directory and navigate to the folder that contains the samples.

    As an example; for the Exit Ghosts Choir, I’d choose the folder titled; ‘original’

    8/. Once again, you might see that “errors were encountered”. Dismiss the message by clicking on any part of the GUI.

    Try the instrument and see if you have sound and turn the volume up on the GUI if necessary.

    9/. And if you are happy with the result,
    right click on FILE > Developer Tools > Save preset… and click on the Save button.

    That’s it. It will load in future as a normal DS instrument.

    And note that you can search Pianobook Samples by using Filter by Sampler Format at the top of the Sample Packs page or By Sampler at the bottom of the page

    Bear in mind that these are relatively straightforward conversions and that the result may or may not sound or work as the original author intended.
