Since linuxsampler (svn-version) supports SFZ, I recommend that format.
It is flexible, has useful options and can easily be modified.
Record the audio-files as flac (or wav), and convert them to oga (ogg
audio) for use with SFZ format.
If you actually need a different format any time later, you can use
a (commercial) sample converter.
IIRC, sfz is supported by some commercial samplers too.
