Anyone know how to go about extracting music from 3DO games?

Postby GuyKazama » Wed Oct 18, 2017 8:08 am

First of all, I just joined this site! I've been downloading from here for years, and love it - recently got my first FZ-10 3DO, and I've been going crazy with burning so many weird ass games. First time post, this seems like an awesome forum. :lovetiz:


So, I'm looking to convert music in a 3DO game from the .m822 extension (I assume those are the audio files) to .mp3. Is there anyway to go about doing this?

The game is "Flopon World", and the title screen music is amazing. I just really need an .mp3 of it.

I never searched for a tool to do that but if that one song is all you need why don't you just download it from Youtube?
(most browsers have an add-on to do that)





Funny thing, just recently I also downloaded some songs from some old games I always liked:
Spoiler:
like ....

Bust-A-Groove


Sega Touring Car Championship


OutRun2


Gran Turismo 2 (PAL-Version)




and btw. - welcome to TIZ

Thanks! I suppose I could just settle with this, though I'd rather have it in lossless quality.

Ooh, Bust a Groove. I really have to play that one.

.mp3 is a lossy format.

Even if you could convert the original file it wouldn't be lossless.

I have never messed with 3DO files. Any chance you could upload one of them somewhere so I can examine the file header?

Upload anywhere and send me the link via PM - Don't post in this thread !
I'll see what I can find out for you. Personally, I prefer ripping tunes out of original file types rather than download a MP3 from a video file on tube...

Not sure where to upload, since I never upload anything to file sharing sites. I have all of the files on the disc extracted, so let me know where, and I'll upload them.

Yeah, I realize that, but it's still better quality than just ripping off YouTube. That's what I meant.

try
https://segaxtreme.net/threads/3do-file ... ked.12468/

OR

try just plugging the audio L&R To a pc and recording it with goldwave or any recording software

OR

Put the cd in the drive,play the audio track and RECORD it with goldwave or and other recording software

OR

use IsoBuster 3.9 that Supports for the Opera 3DO file system

OR

Use A 3do emulator and record it with goldwave or any recording software

It appears to be a normal FORM aiffcomm file,Media Player Classic for pc plays the ???.m1644 (songs) just fine,the ???.m822 appear to be sound effects and play in media player classic just fine also



hope this helps

All music files are AIFF format.. Hopefully these should be convertible to wav files (Lossless)
I'll check if I have OGGVobortis installed on this machine and make OGG'S and MP3's if the audio isn't scrambled...

Biggest bonus of this method, if the sound track is there in files, it's gonna be a 100% rip (Hopefully)

Stay tuned

Fully converted to MP3
This PC keeps crashing out on wav to OGG... Weird... But MP3's are fine 320KBPS VBR

Crunching now and uploading when it's done

AIFF/AIFC are simple :)

In all fairness, this was not hard work. AIFF/AIFC format files are quite simple to convert to WAV files. You just need the right tools.

AIFC > WAV > MP3/OGG
AIFF > WAV > MP3/OGG

Oh and none of this involves "Listening" to the tunes before ripping OR Streaming with a recorder running ! I ain't that lame lol

PS2 ADX are more complex than AIFF :)
I am not a 3DO user and never bothered with emulation (Exists?) but if more games use AIFF for sound format, they should be convertible :)
