The following formats are found in 9 Soundware content:

WAV (24-bit/44.1 kHz)The primary audio format used in 9 Soundware content. While WAV is a highly universal format, please be aware that some applications do not support 24-bit resolution.
 
EXS24In addition to Apple’s EXS24 mkII and EXSP24 mkII, the sampler format is also supported by products such as Native Instruments Kontakt, Mark of the Unicorn Mach Five, Steinberg Halion, and Digidesign Structure. However, EXS24 instruments by 9 Soundware are designed for use solely within the EXS24 mkII and EXSP24 mkII plug-ins included with Apple Logic Pro and Logic Express. Proper playback with third party samplers is not guaranteed. In addition, due to enhancements in modulation routings for the mkII version, .exs files by 9 Soundware are not backward compatible with the EXS24 mkI sampler.
