You can also easily generate a nsmp from a multisampled file.
Here is a quick example using "ADM Marimba project" WAV from Marimba Free Ableton Live Pack 173.

have you tried this one? ... us/marimba

These are absolutely the best marimbas you'll find that can be loaded into the piano section of many Nords (certainly the NS3 which the original poster shows as their gear). These are FAR superior to any kind of samples you'd put in the synth/sample section as they are quite dynamic and can also benefit from some of the filtering effects in the piano section. I do a couple of cover songs with marimbas and was fully unsatisfied until this relatively new marimba sound became available.
