Beat Zampler by Synapse Audio - free SFZ samples player

Beat Magazine and Synapse Audio (remember Dune ? No, not the movie / game ;) ) released (few months ago) free SFZ samples player called Zampler.
Of course, there are at least few other SFZ players available such as SFZ Sample Player, Camel Audio SFZ Player, Wusikstation Sampler can open SFZ files (as far as I remember) but Zampler just seems to be the best. Why ? First, GUI - it offers very similar style to Dune - it's clean and user friendly. Second - preset browser. I like it's simplicity, with just few clicks I'm able to create some new patches and save them as bank. Third - features. Zampler offers user friendly (again Dune) Mod Matrix, Arpeggiator, three LFOs, Filter, Amplitude / Filter Envelopes but what's most important, it brings quality effects on the table:
- Drive - 9 types
- Two EQ - 3 types per each EQ
- Phaser / Flanger / Chorus - 3 Phaser types, 2 Flanger, 2 Chorus
- Delay - 8 types (ie. simple, ping-pong)
- Reverb - 5 types (or maybe I should say more like a adjustable presets - Cathedral, Hall etc.)

I mean, I just like it. It's the first time I have enough of will :) to categorize my SFZ files, load them, adjust some effects and save them as FXP presets / FXB bank. If you're looking for good SFZ player - pick Zampler. It's available both for Mac OSX and PC.

Are there any good, free SFZ libraries available ?
