List of software for unpacking sounds from various games:

- Psound - unlike many others, plays DCZ archives extension (R2 DC/Dreamcast) and extracts SFXes only from combin.dat on R2 PSX disk.
- jpsxdec - scans for various file formats, also plays videos. (audio: xa, xai)
- ADPCM Player v1.44h - found it more capable to detect loops than MF Audio. Since W10, it doesn't play files, gives error, but extracts/converts well. Generally we can use Cube Media Player 2 instead.

For extraced distorted/encrypted/unkown file formats:
- VideoGameSoundConverter_2.0
http://wiki.vg-resource.com/wiki/Video_ ... _Converter
"The conversion is actually handled by vgmstream however VGSC wraps it with a simple UI and allows you to convert multiple files quickly and easily."
or also "Watto Game Extractor" is good to see inside archieves, and then, for playing/extracting strange formats, this:
- DecUbiSndGui - decodes lots of music from UBI games, e.g. extracted from game archives.
- Dragon UnPACKer 5
- quickbms http://aluigi.altervista.org/quickbms.htm

- MFaudio may be useful in overall (doesn't detect loops, plays lot of files)
- PSMPlay - plays stream XA files from e.g. PSX discs. Files like stream.ixa in Rayman 2. But not as a file, but if I remember well, but when you analize bin image. However on W10 it doesnt convert to wav anymore. Only plays. But you can save the file in this program again, and then it can be read by some program, and converted. Extracting of .ixa is imposible with ISOBuster, but posible by Magic ISO. Normally, copying content of R2 PSX disk mounted content by Windows, will return uncorrect ms-dos operation error.
- XA Audio Converter, though without original samplerate (files are upsampled to 44kHz from 37800Hz in case of R2).
- Cube Media Player 2 - looks for a complex tool as to support various file formats (among others IXA/XA/PS2/SS2/ADPCM RAW/ADX/PSS/SFD/VAG (interleave settings in Operations-Properties differs from values of ADPCM Player). It didn't even show that Operations-Convert is greyed out for unregistered users, I hadn't seen the reason to use attached keygen till... I guessed when nothing was able to convert, but only play. Don't only drag and drop your file. Make sure you also clicked on file>analyze file.
- PSXmc - also nice software, but I have some troubles to make it to convert files.
- Nova Extractor - Droolie recommended it for extracting .hxc files from Rayman 3
http://lotro-moonlight.clan.su/load/nov ... 5/1-1-0-23
SFXes in Rayman 3 are in: directory\Gamedatabin\World\Sound\ (they are already ripped and available to download).
- VGMStream
- jpsxdec (also decodes IXA file from R2 PSX, but you need to scan whole track 1 bin file. It also scans separate chosen files, but usually it may not give the same results)
- Audacity (RAW import option, usually PCM or VOX ADPCM, sometimes sound can be distorted, or some segments inside corrupted)

The other nice list of software is posted here:

PS. Expected segments from MPX Tonic Trouble SE can't be played by any of this tools (didn't check all in ngemu).
