PSound on NGEmu. Unlocking your instruments.
« on: 2003-01-07 08:35:59 »
Okay, I found this program on NGEmu yesterday. PSound extracts only sound files from PSX games. Sound files by which I mean sound effects, speech files, and INSTRUMENTS. I've tried with FF7, FF9, and FFX (demo). The full retail FFX files are hidden. The demo's ffxdemo.img is not ^_^

FF7: Sound effects, instruments
FF9: Sound effects, instruments
FFX: Sound effedts, instruments, speech files.

Yes, instruments on FFX! Still living in the past. I guess Square new someone would eventually crack open their precious game. By my reckoning there are about 2000 instrument files, some with one file per octave, to one file per instrument. But actually, the notes that the game only uses are there, there is no real time pitch change. These are not actually instruments, but samples. Some of the files are actually riffs (Like in the song "Peril/Crisis").
Yes instruments on FF9 too. However, not as many as FFX though. At first I thought I could create a FFX SoundFont, but now I'm changing my mind to maybe an FF9 one.
Too bad Sephiroth19992000AD(?) alreayd made a FF7 SoundFont otherwise I would have done one.

Well, I only have Vienna and WaveLab Lite. I've heard about this Awave thing on the forums here, does it work? I mean, is it freeware? I'm sure people other than me have more talent at making this sort of thing. I'm also not aware of an advantage between DLS and SF2. Ecept that you don't need a SBLive/Audigy.

If we could get some from FF8, it may help some of the soundfont people.

I should probably state that for the record, the Guitar Sample being used in the Rev2 DLS for The Extreme, was originally found in a .mod file of the FF9 song You're Not Alone, and it seems to work well for The Extreme.  So, don't be afraid to fall back on FF9 instruments for FF8 stuff.

Funnily enough. I don't have FF8PSX ^_^

EDIT: I've done uploading a 3.25mb worth of samples from FFIX. I tried arranging them in a SoundTont but I am, in a word, useless. I was wondering if someone with more skill than I could do it for the community?
I look foward to including my favourite FFIX instruments in my GM collection =) http://dgp99999.tripod.com/ff9.ZIP Wav format. 22khz Mono.

EDIT2: Correcting URL.
Oh my gosh EDIT4: Copy and paste the link.

Actually, I found the sounds pretty useless because you don't really know which sound file is for which instrument, and you're missing other data like attack, release, etc... Well, except for the "Song of Memories" vocals, which can be found somewhere in the 3000-ish range (been a few months since I did it).

Wait, you got FF7 sounds? How?

NetHead: Using the same program as before, PSound, and using Scan File on 'Instr.all'. You can hear all the instruments at once if you play it back in WinAmp or equivelent.
