HES files are only for games that use internal soundchip for music, you can't handle CD-DA this way. Kingshriek did rip most of CD games that used non CD-DA music, and lately 2CH-H has been doing some VGM logs of games that don't have HES files.

If you're interested in CD-DA, I've also ripped pretty much every CD-based game, the tracks are available here:

Not xSF format but, since kode54 just updated foo_gep to support the extra Saturn/Sega CD etc. soundchannels, is there a repository for those soundtracks anywhere? I thought they'd be on project2612 but it doesn't seem like it.

I only have Sonic CD and Popful Mail. Would like Knuckles Chaotix and to check out some other soundtracks maybe!

thx

Sega 16-bit Music Archive should do the trick.

that has all the mega drive ones thrown in too though :[ unless I'm looking for specific Sega CD/32x games (which I'm not right now) it's no good really, I just wanted to browse through some soundtracks, and clearly I can't just pick stuff out of there at random since 99% of the time it'd be mega drive.

additionally, foobar2000 doesn't want to tag VGZ (or uncompressed VGM!) so I'm wondering what to do about that. am I going to have to hex edit these files? :x

I would like to take a closer look at how the Soul Reaver 2 music is played.

Lunar: 32x sets have (32X) tag, SegaCD sets (SCD), and you can just ctrl-F through the directory listing. Hope this helps.

I used Google to find the 32X sets, but here's a link to find the SCD sets (you'll still have to CTRL+F through the page to find the individual ones) - Google finds SCD sets and 32X - Google 32X. Basically, I used Google's "advanced search options" to search *only* smd.joshw.info. It makes it much easier to find things.

So yes, I can see why it'd be annoying that all the Genesis/32X/etc. rips are all together, but it really not too hard to find things once you know what (and how) to look for. I assume I need an updated in_vgm now? Don't the games have to be re-logged though, to take advantage of these new features? Or were they already logged in the VGM file, but the player just ignored the information? Thanks for the heads up though. I wonder how different they'll sound, or if I'll even notice a difference at all.... Mouser X over and out.

Most of the old, already ripped 32X games just used the standard Genesis chip, so they shouldn't sound any different now. Exception is Virtua Racing which was missing a few songs using the 32X chip, now they should play correctly.

Agh, fack. Those pages include tonnes of streamed sets, so this isn't helping me much either :P

I expect there aren't even that many sets that use Sega CD PCM but they're the ones I want to find mainly.
