SFZ is just a spec and all Open Source implementations of it that I know
of, have only partial support for all its features.

Linuxsampler does not currently support any of the 'oscillator' opcodes
at all:


(search for "Wavetable Oscillator" on the page:)

Nor does it support 'waveguide' (listed under "Sample Definition").

Other implementations, e.g. SFZero,sfizz and liquidsfz, support even
fewer opcodes. Support for SFZ v2 opcodes is very scarce in general.
