I can't answer this question, but if there isn't (yet), you might be interested in VM's Plug-In Host Modules for running a 64-bit sfz player plug-in. I have successfully used the Mini Plug-In Host with a number of my plug-ins (mostly instruments), but not any sfz players, yet.

See New Post Re: Sforzando (below). Just tested a version of Sforzando I had from 2019. Sorry to report VM shut down abruptly when I tried to load it into the Mini Host. :-(
TX16Wx successfully loaded into the Mini Host. :) Samples/Multisamples can be played via MIDI. Successfully tested a few VM modules (arpeggiator, reverb, etc.).

WAY COOL (just an example): VM's LFO (sine) -> Filter (HP Cutoff Freq CV = amount of auto wah) processing TX16Wx Martin Guitar sample + CC knobs -> Filter (Peak, Saturation) + Reverb on MIDI Channel 1. :)
ALSO COOL (just another example): 8 Step Sequencer -> CV to MIDI processing TX16Wx Drum Kit on MIDI Channel 2.

THANKS!!!!

NOTE: The sale I mentioned here is over.

A few days ago I stumbled onto a sale for a soft synth (just under $30 USD) that handles sfz multisamples (among many other features) and has what looks like about 2000+ synth engine parameters exposed making them available through VM's Plug-in Host.

I just tested Sforzando in VM's full Plug-in Host. It worked insofar as I could play notes via midi. I then retried the Mini Plug-in Host. That worked, too. Not sure why now works. The version I used produces a list of 512 parameters. Two start with CC (CC007 and CC010). The rest start with a p. So far as I can tell, on the version I have those two CCs are the only ones available to control. Just updated to the January 15, 2021, version. Only CC007 and CC010 are specifically listed among the 512 parameters. Those two (volume and pan) do work.
