Can't really disagree with either of those :) I do wish it was easier to

I've never had much luck with it either, though apparently the version
in svn now works better, and has some SFZ support.
It is a bit slow, but I rarely have to run it these days. I used to have
to run it once a session, just to reload my saved sampler setup. Now I
don't even need to do that -- since I'm using the LinuxSampler LV2
plugin, my sampler settings are all stored as part of my Ardour session,
and automatically restored when I load that session.

It does, yes, but the SFZ format is really quite simple. For a simple
case of mapping a single sample across the keyboard, something like this
You can add all sorts of options to that (envelopes, filters, etc.), but
that'll get you started.

Yep, that would definitely still be handy. For now I'm still using
Hydrogen to host any drum sounds that I create (routing each Hydrogen
instrument's outputs separately to Ardour), but I may soon start making
SFZ files for them instead.
