I'm a Polyphone newbie. I've tried opening a few of the many .sfz files I have, and Polyphone doesn't seem to be finding any of the sample files. Polyphone opens the file .sfz without reporting any obvious errors, and it shows the Instruments and Presets that it found, but no samples. I confirmed that the files do contain "sample" opcodes.

Most of the .sfz files I have are from Garritan and/or Finale, but a few are not. I tried some of each. All the ones I tried work fine in the Aria player. I'm probably missing something fundamental; I did RTFM and search the forums before posting this.

I attached one of the .sfz files I tried; it's one of the smallest ones I have. I did not create it; it's part of a free sample library.
I'm running Polyphone version 2.3.1, 64-bit, under Windows 10.

your attachment contains no samples. there should be a folder named Samples in which you can find, among others, a sample named
ocrina-c3-1-c3.wav
so your Gemshorn is made from ocarina samples.

Thank you for the response.

Yes, I know the .sfz file contains no samples; to the best of my knowledge, .sfz files cannot contain samples directly.
It does contain each of the following lines twice:
sample=..\samples\ocrina-a#4-3-a#4.wav
sample=..\samples\ocrina-a4-1-a4.wav
sample=..\samples\ocrina-c3-1-c3.wav
sample=..\samples\ocrina-d4-1-d4.wav
sample=..\samples\ocrina-f#4-2-f#4.wav
sample=..\samples\ocrina-g4-1-g4.wav
The full path for the file I attached is "E:\SampleSets\Early Music Ensemble (v3)\Winds\Gemshorn.sfz"
There is also a directory at "E:\SampleSets\Early Music Ensemble (v3)\samples\" that contains over 1300 .wav files, including these:
ocrina-a#4-3-a#4.wav
ocrina-a4-1-a4.wav
ocrina-c3-1-c3.wav
ocrina-d4-1-d4.wav
ocrina-f#4-2-f#4.wav
ocrina-g4-1-g4.wav
Thus, the .sfz file correctly points to the sample files it needs, using relative paths. As I mentioned in my original post, it works fine in the Aria player. But when I open that same .sfz file in Polyphone, it doesn't list any of the samples.

if you can locate the folder containing the samples, then try copying the .sfz to that folder and open this copy in Polyphone.

That worked, though it shouldn't have.
Thank you very much for the help; I'll post this as a bug report.
