JJC is right, but I get what you are saying. SF editors are usually big 
complicated beasts. I've authored Translator, a Mac/Win program that converts 
any format to any format - inst files, bank files like SF, and single sound 
files (WAVE, etc.), and it can be a beast too. Wouldn't be wonderful to have 
something quick and easy to create a SF really quickly (no beast)? Like if 
there was a menu option within Finder/Explorer to quickly create it without 
thinking? I'll work on that.
