I am sorry for creating confusion with the objects of the mails ...  I continue 
here the yesterday debate about the sfz from London Philharmonia samples.

I don't understand why Sonatina uses one samples every three note, while 
London Philharmonia provides one sample per note.

Something like that implies a hard code for file names or a strict directories 
organization to obtain every information needed (for ex: instrument name, note, 
velocity etc).
Every project has different needs.. otherwise, we can think to a tool to make 
easier creating sfz files, but user will have to insert sample by sample, so it 
won't be automated.
