Originally, PSF soundtracks were distributed as a single PSF file per song, however, this created a lot of redundant data. More recent PSF soundtracks are distributed in a set of .minipsf and .psflib files. All redundant data is stored together in a single .psflib file and data unique to each song is stored in the .minipsf files.

Portable Sound Format (PSF) is an audio format used for storing PlayStation audio data. Neill Corlett created the format in 2002. PSF originally stood for PlayStation Sound Format, but since numerous projects have used the format as a base platform (GSF, SSF, USF, etc.), it has been renamed to Portable Sound Format.

Originally, PSF soundtracks were distributed as a single PSF file per song, however, this created a lot of redundant data. More recent PSF soundtracks are distributed in a set of .minipsf and .psflib files. All redundant data is stored together in a single .psflib file and data unique to each song is stored in the .minipsf files.
