  • Cakewalk sfz
  • Alchemy (Camel Audio was acquired by Apple, and the current incarnation of Alchemy no longer supports SFZ.)

Sforzando currently offers the most complete SFZ standard support, including ARIA extensions, but SFZ files which only use the SFZ 1 or SFZ 2 standard will work with multiple SFZ players.
