Even if it is not possible to write a sampler engine (it would not be the first [partly]binary, closed format loaded by open source software) maybe there is at least a way to get all the needed information to convert/correct them by hand or individual scripts.

i'm not well up on sampler formats. are any of them defined under an
open specification? i.e. can we get a reliably documented piece on the
structure of them?

if not, perhaps creating one would be a good start?

I already have a github repository up with two projects (WIP), so contact me here per mail or IRC #lad if you are interested.

excellent work, nils. i'm pleased to see someone putitng effort in to this.

is your github account public, could we see it?
