mkdd is ast files, or prerecorded. Unfortunately MIDI extraction won't happen.

SMS is BMS. Luigi, I don't know.

SF2 extraction is probably broken.

You need wszst to extract Wind Waker BMS files.

First extract Audiores/Seqs/JaiSeqs.arc from ISO using wit or Dolphin. Then run "wszst extract JaiSeqs.arc" to obtain BMS songs. Dragged into vgmtrans, BMS songs will only appear on the left side (not bottom). Save As Midi is fully functional.

Drag Audiores/JaiInit.aaf to load instrument banks. They appear on the left side and bottom. Using the bottom crashes (since JaiInit.aaf doesn't link to instruments) and using the left and Save As SF2 does nothing (I think).

Dragging Audiores/Banks/*.aw into vgmtrans does nothing.

Does wszst work with Super Mario Sunshine? Specifically the sequence.arc file (if there are any BMS songs hidden in there)

EDIT: Tested, it doesn't. Well that's a shame. Is there any way I could export the BMS files from Sunshine?

In Sunshine, sequence.arc is just the contents of all the BMS files concatenated together. Search for the string "sequence.arc" in msound.aaf in a hex editor; the names, offsets (in sequence.arc), and sizes of each of the sequences should follow immediately after.

gctools (linked on the previous page) can get the BMS sequences from Sunshine's archives - use smsdumpbanks. But it's kind of tedious to build gctools just for this purpose.

Ah thank you. This should help a bunch

Just to make this clear: I'll need a running Windows for this, right? No Wine/CrossOver or self compiling allowed?

Dolphin, wit, and wszst support Linux. Vgmtrans may run under Wine, but I haven't checked.

I seem to recall Vgmtrans crashing under Wine a few years ago, but I'm not entirely sure.

@jimbo1qaz Yo so I've begun doing extensive research on how GameCube music was handled, as initially I thought borderline ALL of it was streamed, but obviously that's not the case. Read most of this thread, skimmed a bit.

I'm not a super duper technical guy who knows a lot about very specific computer-related stuff but I know enough that my interest was sparked, particularly when someone sent me a soundfont package (called the "Ultimate Wii Soundfont Package" or something close to that) with a sample that sounded INCREDIBLY similar to the pad used in the "Menu" theme in Mario Kart Double Dash.

All that said, you however recently mentioned that Double Dash was prerecorded, which of course is what I initially thought but hearing that synth pad in that soundfont package really has me questioning if maybe SOME (or even most) of Double Dash is prerecorded but maybe the "Menu" theme is BMS? I haven't been able to extract any files or anything but I'm assuming maybe you would know for a fact if the entirety of Double Dash is prerecorded or not.

The entirety of this is incredibly interesting to me and now I'm really curious how it was all handled and implemented back in the day.

Yes, Mario Kart Double Dash does use some sequences, which are included in the uploaded rip of the game, in the Seqs/JaiSeqs.arc file. I have no idea how to unpack that file, though. Presumably it also goes together with Waves/
