Default .NES ROM to .WAV audio

Good day to all,

My question is simple and straight forward:

How does one capture every sound that exists in a .nes file and convert them into .wav files ?

We're talking every little sound, from a sword swipe in the Legend of Zelda to a brick smash in Super Mario Bros.

Zophar's utilities page has a great collection of .nsf files, however they are 90% music files only.

The focus here is on the individual sounds

Can someone write a program that takes .nes files and isolates all the sound information and converts it into a .nsf file?

lol it would only take a few minutes

As you mailed me as well. I'll answer here.

You can use a hex editor to change the number of songs in a NSF. You don't really need to change the header. Just record the music, sound effects using an emulator or Winamp.

There is no known way to convert NES/FC ROMs to NSFs automatically and via a utility. You're not the only one that has asked this question. You need to manually extract the music out of the ROM, write some 6502 code and put it all together.

And no, usually people ain't willing to do the work for you specifically. If you want something bad enough, do it yourself.

respect.

yeah after some thinking i realized i just want the sound effects for the original zelda. i figured with all the nsf's out there and zelda being one of the most popular video games of all time, it would have the sound effects in there.

The rip for Legend of Zelda that's here does not have the sound effects as I'm sure you evidently noticed.

However, this archive has the rip you're looking for.
