Converting Dreamcast .dsf to midi? by Rhymelie at 10:39 PM EDT on July 9, 2020
Yeah, I was wondering if there are tools out there to take the DSF files from the Sega Dreamcast and convert them to midi files, similarly to the way gbamusriper or vgmtrans does this for gba and ds games.

I only really plan to do this for the Dreamcast port of Gauntlet Legends, though, and when I downloaded the files for it from http://dsf.joshw.info, I got the files as .stg, .str or .stn-- something like that. I'll go back and edit this once I find out for sure what the files were called, but I've never encountered them before, and I was wondering if these were a streamed audio format that the Dreamcast uses, or if these are still sequenced files.

Any and all help is appreciated as always!

I remember looking for a way to do it years ago LMAO

Luckily there is a way.

https://github.com/nmlgc/aosdk

You have to compile this using MinGW or some other source compiler tool, though it's pretty simple especially if you've done this sort of thing.

Once you have it set, open it up in CMD and look at the options you desire.

then type in "aosdk (options) (file path of the DSF you desire to rip)

It can only do 1 DSF at a time from what i remember, and they were apparently working on SSF (Saturn) support too

This also dumps the samples and a .wav of what was logged which is super useful
